lowers LDL's (bad cholesterol) while raising HDL's (good cholesterol).
It improves fat metabolism, reduces blood fat levels and depresses
lipid peroxide and fat sediment in the blood vessels.
While it is great for rectifying high
cholesterol and obesity problems, it can also improve
and strengthen the digestion, allowing an underweight
person to increase absorption of nutrients and gain weight in
the form of lean muscle mass.This regulatory effect on bodily
functions is the hallmark of an adaptogen.
This is all-natural healthy, herbal, product from the plant
Jiaogulan prevents cells from turning
cancerous and also inhibits the growth of tumors already
formed by stimulating the body's immune system cells. Cancer
patients given Jiaogulan show marked improvement in white blood
cell count antibody levels, and raised T and B lymphocyte levels.
Jiaogulan is one of the best broad-spectrum
adaptogenic herbs known, containing polysaccharides, amino acids,
vitamins, minerals, flavones, saponins and many essential trace
elements. Very safe for long-term use. Highly effective
in reducing the side-effects of radiation and chemotherapy by
boosting the immune system.
Athletes use Jiaogulan to enhance their performance
because it enhances the heart pumping function, improving
contraction of the heart muscle. The most pronounced
benefits are increased endurance during strong physical activity,
and more rapid recovery afterwards.
Jiaogulan contains 84 beneficial saponins -
three times more than ginseng, yet it has no side-effects.
Due to its significantly higher quantity of beneficial saponins,
it has been widely studied and used worldwide, including for
patients recovering from exposure to ultraviolet, beta and gamma-rays.
It also dramatically reduces cholesterol levels, normalizes
blood pressure, protects the heart, and increases fat metabolism.
Over 300 scientific research findings back up
nearly every claim for Jiaogulan (also known as Gynostemma pentaphyllum).
Jiaogulan is a superb immune-enhancer and antioxidant
for all ages.
Cancer Protection - Jiaogulan
prevents cells from turning cancerous and also inhibits the
growth of tumors already formed by stimulating the body's immune
system cells. Cancer patients given Jiaogulan show marked improvement
in white blood cell count antibody levels, and raised T and
B lymphocyte levels. It has been shown that Jiaogulan has activity
against esophagal, lung, breast, uterus, prostate, brain, kidney,
thymus and skin cancer.
Reduce the Risk of Strokes and Heart
Attacks - Jiaogulan dramatically decreases the chances
of a stroke by inhibiting blood platelets from "sticking
together," which prevents a stroke-inducing blood clot
from forming. This same action prevents artery clogging, reducing
risk of a heart attack.
Build Your Immune System -
In China, doctors prescribe daily doses of Jiaogulan for patients
recovering from heart and brain surgery, because the herb supports
the immune system, aiding in a quicker and more effective recovery.
Patients undergoing cancer therapies such as radiation and chemotherapy
receive Jiaogulan as well. Research has shown that Jiaogulan
can increase the white blood cell count, which strengthens resistance,
thus improving the patients' ability to recover.
Stay Younger Longer. Biochemist
Subbuti Dharmenanda says that signs of aging are avoidable if
you can tame the free radicals that cause them. "If free
radicals aren't shut down, they cause everything from cataracts
to cancer.” But studies show that taking just 40 mg of
Penta daily triples production of superoxide dismutase, a chemical
that neutralizes free radicals by 21%.
Bronchitis. Penta (Jiaogulan)
tea has been traditionally used as a remedy for bronchitis.
In one study, the effectiveness rate of using Penta tea to treat
chronic bronchitis was 93%.
Stress Reduction. Penta has
a bi-phasic action on the central nervous system, calming the
nerves when irritated and exciting them when depressed. This
is why Penta is known as an adaptogen. The increased balance
affects other systems of the body, normalizing the balance between
other organs' functions, thereby bolstering stability of the
body as a whole. This results in better brain function, increased
endurance, and resistance to illness and injury.
Antioxidant properties of Penta.
Antioxidants are an important factor in treating cancer, liver
disease, diabetes, arteriosclerosis, arthritis inflammation
and even the aging process. Penta (Jiaogulan) has been proven
in many studies to have a powerful antioxidant effect, by protecting
the body from free radical damage.
Reducing Blood Pressure, Preventing
Strokes and Heart Attacks. Penta dramatically decreases
the chances of a stroke by inhibiting blood platelets from "sticking
together," which prevents the formation of stroke-inducing
blood clots. This same action prevents artery clogging, thereby
reducing risk of a heart attack. Also, studies show that in
as little as two weeks, a small dose of Penta taken daily, lowers
high blood pressure to a normal range. By increasing production
of nitric oxide - a chemical that relaxes blood vessel walls
- the herb effectively reduces the blood pressure. In addition,
Penta reduces cholesterol by about 25%.
Building Up the Immune System.
In China, doctors prescribe daily doses of Jiaogulan (Penta)
for patients recovering from heart and brain surgery. Why? Because
the herb supports the immune system, aiding in a quicker and
more effective recovery. Patients undergoing cancer therapies
such as radiation and chemotherapy receive Penta as well. Research
has shown that Penta can increase the white blood cell count,
which strengthens resistance, thus improving the patients' ability
Improving Cardiovascular Function.
Athletes use the herb to enhance their performance, as Penta
has been found to enhance the heart pumping function, improving
contractility of the heart muscle. Endurance during heightened
physical activity and recovery afterwards are the most pronounced
Make the tea with hot boiled water for
3 minutes, 2-3 tea bags daily. The tea has no side-effects,
no over dose effects, as per the test done by the Stimulant
Testing Center of Chinese Sports Medical Science Institute,
the tea is without any stimulants forbidden by provisions(1988)
of International Olympic Commission.
