Jioagulan “The immortality herb”


Gynostemma pentaphyllum

Beginning to follow the Dao (The natural way) Jioagulan was the first plant to capture my attention fully. What an astonishing revelation to discover that it was “adaptogenic”, creating balance in the body by raising what lacked and lowering what was raised. This simple, unremarkable looking vine perfectly exemplifies one of my core beliefs; Nature always balances.

It has been used medicinally for centuries by Eastern cultures, yet sadly remains almost completely unknown and disregarded in the West. As a novice herbalist it is unquestionably worthy of study.

Caveat: Although I have found benefit in it, this does not mean the same will hold true for you.    Study it certainly, But for your own safety consult a qualified physician before ANY attempt at use.
