Jiaogulan is known for the longevity of its inhabitants where it is known as the “Herb of Immortality” taken in the morning to provide energy and after work to relive fatigue. Modern science has confirmed that Jiaogulan increases oxygen utilization and assists efficient cardiac function. Jiaogulan became known to the West when Chinese athletes used it as a secret weapon in their pursuit of Olympic medals.
Jiaogulan maintains vital functions, increases endurance, provides resistance to injurious stimuli and promotes individual core health with strong potential for prevention as well as healing.
Jiaogulan (like other adaptogens) is “bi-directional.” Should you require energy, it increases your energy, but if you are overactive it will calm your nerves. If your blood sugar level is low Jiaogulan will raise it and if too high it will lower the level. Jiaogulan works on what’s given and different for each person to adjust and strengthen the body sequentially. An energizing herb that combats fatigue, increases vitality and endurance, speeds recovery, heightens mental alertness and enhances longevity.
Jiaogulan responds to intercellular messages that indicate the location and nature of an imbalance and in which direction and what degree an adjustment is required to normalize the condition. Jiaogulan responds to direct the body to normalize its own functions.
Jiaogulan leaves contain well balanced proportions of selenium, magnesium, zinc, calcium, iron and phosphorous. Vitamins B1, B2, carotene join the broad spectrum of proteins and amino acids.
