This tonic herb from the Chinese pharmacopeia is attributed with profound life-enhancing longevity effects. The naturally occurring adaptogenic chemical called saponins have proven antiaging, anti-inflammatory, and immune-regulating effects similar to ginseng. Known as Jiao Gu Lan in Chinese herbalism, this herb is also known to enhance respiratory function, making it ideal for athletes and people needing lung support, as well as digestive aid. Finally, our organic Gynostemma is known as a gentle detoxifier, helping to support the body's natural cleansing abilities. Sweet and delicious, it can be steeped many times like most teas. Due to its beneficial effects, it is appropriate to drink multiple cups of gynostemma every day as a daily tonic.
