What is Gynostemma? It is a remarkable herb that grows in the southeastern provinces of China. It is also known as Jiaogulan or "magic grass." It contains more than 80 different saponins. These saponins are extremely similar to ginsenosides and are considered to be fundamentally equivalent to ginsenosides found in Panax Ginseng and American Ginseng. However, the variety of saponins found in Gynostemma seems to result in broader adaptogenic capabilities.
Herbs that are categorized as adaptogens help to bring the mind and body into a state of harmony with the environment by inducing chemical, cellular, and systemic balance. This harmonizing function reduces the effects of negative conditions. This function also stimulates the immune and healing ability of the mind and body. Adaptogenic herbs, such as Gynostemma, help us adapt to various stressful challenges we face and reduce the damage to our mind and body. They help in coping with stress and promote well-being. As we are able to experience challenge more easily, we can do more and accomplish more.
Gynostemma is a famous anti-aging, longevity Adaptogen. It is used generally to reinforce overall health, and has a powerful anti-fatigue effect. Gynostemma is one of the great adaptogenic herbs, in the same category as Ginseng, Reishi Mushroom, Siberian Ginseng, Astragalus, and Schizandra. The Japanese have done considerable research on the effects of Gynostemma. First of all, it is a very safe herb, with no side effects, that can be consumed safely by anyone on a daily basis. Gynostemma contains an incredibly broad range of phytonutrients with a high concentration of essential amino acids, vitamins, mineral and trace elements. Research supports that Gynostemma slows down the aging process and reduces fatigue. It improves sexual functions, helps to calm the nervous system, and eases pain.

Gynostemma research has suggested that it may:
Gynostemma has become one of the most popular Super Herbs in the World in the past decade due to its association with longevity and good health. Scientific researchers discovered a higher proportion of healthy octogenarians in a region in China where consumption of Gynostemma was high. This ''discovery'' contributed to an onslaught of scientific research, especially in Japan. The cumulating research has been very exciting, indicating that this gentle, safe herb can be of great value to us in many ways--the sign of a true adaptogenic Super Herb.
Research has also shown that Gynostemma can profoundly affect the ability of the body to slow down the aging process. One of the ways it does this is by being what scientists call a biological reaction regulator, helping the body deal with challenges so there is less or no recovery time. This is another benefit of being in the adaptogenic category of herbs.
