Jiaogulan or the Herb of immortality!
Aktualisiert: Feb 12
Jiaogulan (Gynostemma pentaphyllum or "stranded blue plant" when translated from Chinese) is better known as "The Herb of Immortality".
Jiaogulan is considered to be one of the 10 most important herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TMC). & there are many reasons for that.
One of them is the fact that it contains 82 saponins. And saponins are chemical compounds identical to the ones found in Ginseng, but Ginseng only has 22 of those compounds.
Jiaogulan is also a strong adaptogen, meaning that it is a natural substance considered to help the body adapt to stress, a substance that can work on many problems at the same time & a substance that has no side effects.
