In the late 1970s, Japanese
scientists began discovering jiaogulan's illness-prevention and therapeutic
qualities. What they uncovered was an herb very similar in quality to ginseng,
yet in some ways superior. They found jiaogulan to function as both an adaptogenic
herb and as an antioxidant herb, containing many health-giving saponins (chemical
compounds having a soapy characteristic), as well as trace minerals, amino acids,
proteins, and vitamins.
Jiaogulan contains a large quantity of these saponins, known also as gypenosides. The structure of the gypenosides is very similar to the panaxosides (also known as ginsenosides) found in ginseng. There are four times as many saponins in jiaogulan as there is in ginseng. Some of those saponins are identical to the panaxosides in ginseng and some of them turn into panaxosides when taken into the body. This results in a greater number of saponins than ginseng, which may translate into a more powerful regulatory effect on a number of bodily systems; like blood pressure, the reproductive system, the digestive system, the immune system, mental functions and more. 1, 2.

Jiaogulan (Gynostemma pentaphyllum) is a popular herb in both China and Japan because of its effectiveness as a natural vitamin supplement. Jiaogulan, which grows wild throughout Asia, has been brewed for a beverage and used as in the southeastern provinces of China for centuries. Literary reference to the herb dates back to the Ming Dynasty (1368 A.D. to 1644 A.D). In China it is praised as as a Miracle Herbal Vitamin and the "Immortality Tea"

Gynostemma Pentaphyllum(Thunb.) is praised as the immortality herb due to its many health-giving qualities.
