Gynostemma Tea, An Energizing Herbal Adaptogen SuperfoodEvolution Published on Dec 13, 2016 Gynostemma, also called jiaogulan, is a green leafy herb that became famous as a legendary infused "immortality tea" among certain isolated highland villages populations of southern China. This is a location where the plant naturally grows wild and where people were reported to live healthy long lives from daily consumption. Because of its remote use, it has only just recently been introduced into the Chinese herbal system and is now a popular hot tea to drink throughout Asia for its energizing and anti-fatigue effects, often used as a replacement for coffee and caffeinated teas. Containing saponin gypenosides and other constituents that exhibit antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune modulating properties, it is often compared to that of ginseng for its unique qualities.
