Health Benefits Natural Health Clinics www.herb.com

Jiaogulan is on record as dating back to the Ming Dynasty and although it is found throughout Asia, historically it is found mainly as part of Chinese history.

There are many famous Chinese herbs but Jiaogulan, which has been used as an energizing agent, has been taken as a tea before work to increase endurance and strength, and after work to relieve fatigue.




In the 1970s a Japanese researcher, looking for a sugar alternative, studied a perennial weed known for its sweetness. Japanese scientists then began discovering jiaogulan's illness-prevention and therapeutic qualities.

Jiaogulan (pronounced jee-ow-goo-lahn) is similar to ginseng in chemical composition and function. It is also known as Xiancao, "Immortality" Herb, because it grows wild and has many health-giving qualities and anti-aging effects. It is an antioxidant herb, containing many health-giving saponins (chemical compounds having a soapy characteristic), as well as trace minerals, amino acids, proteins, and vitamins. More saponins may provide a more powerful regulatory effect on   blood pressure, the reproductive system, the digestive system, the immune system, mental functions and more.

Confirmed by scientific studies, it decreases cholesterol. It improves the liver's ability to send sugar and carbohydrates to the muscles for conversion to energy instead of turning the sugar into triglycerides which the body stores as fat. It improves fat metabolism, reduces blood fat levels and helps depresses lipid peroxide and fat sediment in the blood vessels.

Blood Pressure

Jiaogulan has been widely reported to be effective in maintaining healthy blood pressure levels. A study by the Guiyang Medical College  showed an improvement in cardiac contraction and stroke volume, thus increasing cardiac output (blood flow) into the blood vessels, without raising blood pressure or heart rate.


While jiaogulan is great for regulating cholesterol, it can be of assistsance in good weight loss programs. It improves and strengthens digestion and at the same time, helps an underweight person with more effective absorption of nutrients. This regulatory effect on bodily functions is the very typical of an Adaptogen.

Strength and Endurance

The results of human studies confirm that jiaogulan can enhance the contractility of the heart muscle and heart pumping function. Other studies have shown that the saponins in jiaogulan increase strength and endurance in the body. Considering these findings overall, jiaogulan becomes the perfect herb for anyone who wants to improve his competitive edge in any field of athletic performance. 5


Jiaogulan has also demonstrated an ability to support the immune system when under the siege of various destructive agents.6,7 Jiaogulan has also shown its effectiveness, in clinical research studies, as a potent immunomodulator. It increases the production of Lymphocytes, Phagocytes, and Serum IGG.8

Adaptogenic Properties

Jiaogulan has a biphasic effect on brain functions, energizing or calming the system depending upon need, as well as on the regulation of hormonal functions in both men and women. The healthy maintenance of these physiological actions plays a major role in the body's ability to cope with stress.9,10

Antioxidant Properties

The results of many scientific studies show that jiaogulan's powerful antioxidant quality protects against free radical damage. 11,12

Gypenosides-The Active Ingredients

Jiaogulan contains a large quantity of saponins known as gypenosides. The structure of the gypenosides is very similar to the panaxosides (also known as ginsenosides) found in ginseng. There are 3-4 times as many saponins in jiaogulan as there are 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 greater number of gypenosides may account for a more powerful regulatory effect on a number of body systems, like blood pressure, the reproductive system, the digestive system, the immune system, mental functions, and more
