Mounting research is proving Gynostemma to be one of the greatest longevity herbs of all time. From giving you energy in the morning, to helping you relax at night, offering potent immune support, protecting the DNA from aging, and upregulating countless longevity mechanisms favorably, it is indeed a lifetime companion for optimal health.
The Herb of Immortality
Gynostemma, also known as the “Herb of Immortality” is consumed by tens of millions of people every day in Asia, often in place of tea or coffee. The mounting research is starting to show that it could very well be one of the most anti-ageing herbs available to us in the world! It is the epitome of an adaptogen – it can be taken in the morning to bring energy, taken again after work to relieve fatigue, yet taken before bed to promote good sleep! It can improve sports performance and also help one reach deeper relaxation.
Herbal powerhouses like Ginseng has 32 saponins, whilst Gynostemma has 120! Also, these Gynostemma saponins are very identical to Ginseng, hence China locals call it “Southern Ginseng”. Saponins are complex molecules that modulate and balance our physiology and hence, with such a broad range – it helps you to adapt and regulate to all kinds of conditions you face internally and externally. A particular saponin in Gynostemma, known as gypenoside #49, is a known telomerase activator – which is a way to reverse DNA ageing! Telomere science is advancing so rapidly that companies are dumping huge dollars into telomere products that cost a bomb!
Another major powerhouses in the fields of gerontology studies and longevity research is the upregulation of the molecule AMPK (AMP-activated protein kinase) and the systems of health-enhancing cascades that it brings. AMPK is a crucial molecule in anti-ageing and disease prevention. Gynostemma is a superior AMPK upregulator – which is a testament to its claims and promise of bringing vibrant health.
Here are just some of the myriad of benefits offered by Gynostemma:
Why is Our Gynostemma Different?
We all know that the chemical approach to nutrition i.e. merely looking and nutrition content such as mineral and vitamin levels are a small piece to the large puzzle of health. There is the biological aspect – the gene transcription from plant RNA to our DNA – which is massive.
Those who deliberately cultivate Gynostemma leaves in controlled farming and agricultural conditions can still produce a product of certain value – but it will never come close to the genetic, energetic and biochemical potency offered by wild Gynostemma that typically grows best in its primal conditions at high altitudes where climate conditions may be extreme i.e. varying seasons of hot and cold, strong winds, thunderstorms and torrential rain alternating with dry seasons etc. The degree to which it is exposed to an extreme range of conditions pretty much determines the degree to which it gives us the same adaptive power and ability to thrive in all conditions.
Our Gynostemma is ethically wild-harvested (meaning the methods employed has to promote or at least not compromise the sustainability and flourishing of the ecosystem) from the mountaineous regions of Northern Thailand. Take note that our Gynostemma is being processed right where the source of the Gynostemma is – which allows us to ensure that only the mature and peak harvests are used FRESH (within 24 hours) without having to store them for future use!
From raw material to end product, the stringent quality standards employed are detailed as follows:
Our Gynostemma tea tastes refreshing, smooth and some of them love it so much, they drink it with every meal! A little pinch goes a long way and because of the particle size and large surface area, it gets extracted almost instantly – saving the efforts of long steeping times in traditional tea making.
Also, a great benefit is that you are not just getting the extract in tea form, but able to swallow the whole herb at the same time! Of course, you are free to consume the product as it is without having to prepare a tea.
Finally, a true testament to its porous structure and surface area is after the first extraction, should you choose to “re-decoct” or make a second batch, unlike in regular teas, hardly any flavour remains – which shows how thoroughly it has been extracted the first time around.
Consume as a tea as and when needed
