Jiaogulan | Herb of Immortality

Gynostemma is native to South-East Asia and has been admired for thousands of years for its ability to prolong life. Commonly known as the “Herb of Immortality” in China, the Chinese traditionally drink Jiaogulan tea to boost energy, endurance, strength and, to combat fatigue. It's known to the locals as “poor man’s ginseng,” or "southern ginseng" as it contains at least 100 saponins that are extremely close to those found in the Ginseng family. Interestingly enough, Gynostemma is even richer in these saponins than Ginseng!  Gynostemma is a highly powerful adaptogen.

Grown in the mountains of southwestern China for thousands of years, Jiaogulan is a wild herb that has been consumed as a tea or in soups.
