Jiaogulan was discovered as a herb over 20 years ago. It is used in different forms such as tea, capsules, tonic, powder, and leaves. Its usage has increased tremendously in the last few years, spreading across various countries around the world. The herb is also recognized as a miracle herb due to the health benefits it has to offer, helping cure several problems such as cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes, cancer and more.
Jiaogulan has been researched extensively in China. In fact, it is the only herb that has gone through several studies and research projects. During these research studies, it has been concluded that Jiaogulan can lower blood pressure, improve the overall immunity by multiplying white blood cells, reduce blood clotting, eradicate fatigue, improve sleep and protect the heart muscle.
The biggest trend reported in Jiaogulan this year is its ability to strengthen the heart muscle and promote cardiovascular health.
Heart and blood vessel disease are the number one cause of several deaths around the world. In fact, the majority of problems related to the heart are caused due to a condition termed as atherosclerosis, which means hardening and thickening of the arteries causing a blockage. An individual suffers from atherosclerosis when plaque, comprising of blood fats and white blood cells accumulates in the artery walls. The negative effects of this accumulation and arterial damage are vast and could result in death.
Jiaogulan Prevents Arterial Damage
Jiaogulan does not let your arteries get damaged. This is done in two ways:
- It has antioxidant effects that help to neutralize the oxidative damage of cholesterol and free radicals.
- It has the ability to balance blood pressure levels depending on the condition of the individual – if there is a need to increase or decrease blood pressure levels. This further prevents any kind of endothelial damage.
Jiaogulan Prevents Plaque Accumulation
Arterial plaque majorly comprises bad cholesterol (LDL) and blood fats. Their quantity and concentration in the body must be reduced to prevent or hamper the development of atherosclerosis in the body.
According to studies, Jiaogulan has properties that reduce LDL and triglyceride levels in the body. Furthermore, it has the potential to increase the concentration of good cholesterol (HDL) in the body. This is accomplished by enhancing the body’s metabolism, as a result of which fat is broken down appropriately, suppressing the damage caused by free radicals.
Jiaogulan Protects Against Blood Clots and Platelet Stickiness
Jiaogulan increases the body’s ability to produce Nitric Oxide. This lessens platelet stickiness as blood clots are no longer being formed. Jiaogulan also inhibits the growth of Tissue Factor, a key protein required for the initiation of blood clotting.
The herb does not let the platelets stick to each other or to the arterial lining. In fact, it assists in detaching them from one another, ensuring that no blood clotting or stickiness occurs.
Apart from common health benefits, Jiaogulan can successfully reduce the number of deaths caused by cardiovascular attacks. This makes Jiaogulan the next trending medicinal herb for good health.
