Gynostemma Pentaphyllum, also known as the sweet tea by locals, has a naturally sweet taste and is often called southern ginseng due to its high saponin compounds which are similar to ginseng.
Jiaogulan has potent antioxidant potential via increased levels of the enzyme Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and research has also shown that Jiaogulan strongly supports activity of the eNOS enzyme system, which stands for endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase.
