Praised as “The Herb of Immortality” in China, Jiaogulan (Gynostemma pentaphyllum) is a wild-grown climbing vine of the cucumber/gourd family, believed to contribute to a long and disease-free life due to its powerful anti-aging effects and possibly the widest spectrum of health benefits of any plant known to science.

Jiaogulan is an herb from southern China that possesses the most wide-ranging benefits for human health and wellness of any plant yet discovered. This may seem like a bold statement, but having studied this remarkable tonic herb for more than twenty years, I can assure you that there is strong scientific support to back up my passion for jiaogulan” Dr. Jialiu Liu, ‘Father of Jiaogulan’.

The inhabitants of the high mountains of south central China have been using Jiaogulan for hundreds of years as a general health tonic and rejuvenating elixir. They have been drinking it daily as a tea before work to increase their endurance and strength, and after work to relieve fatigue and promote good sleep.

Jiaogulan (pronounced gee-ow-goo-lan) was largely unknown outside of those few remote mountainous regions until the early 1970’s when interest in Jiaogulan by the Chinese government was sparked by the results of the first nationwide population census, according to an article published in the Guangxi Daily Newspaper.1

The census revealed extremely low incidence of cancer, senility and other serious diseases, and an abnormally high percentage of people living to 100 years of age in certain villages of the Guizhou, Guangxi and Sichuan provinces.2, 3, 4

Interested in the reason for these intriguing results, the Chinese government commissioned a team of researchers from the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences to conduct an investigation. The scientists considered genetics, climate, diet and many other factors.

They eventually found out that many of the centenarians consumed a tea made from a wild vine as a substitute for the traditional green tea. The locals called it “Xiancao”, or “The Immortality Herb”, and that served as a big hint for the scientists.

As a result of this discovery, and encouraged by promising research on Jiaogulan that had been going on in parallel in Japan since the early 70’s, the Chinese government appointed Dr. Jialiu Liu to lead a team of 16 scientists to investigate the properties of plants growing in the Mt. Fanjing Nature Reserve. After lengthy and extensive study of a large variety of herbs, they singled out Jiaogulan as the most promising plant for further research.

“After many years studying hundreds of herbs, we ultimately came to the realization that Jiaogulan was not only the rainforest’s most precious gift, but was in fact nature’s greatest treasure. We began to use Jiaogulan in our medical university hospital with great success for a wide variety of conditions, and before long, it was also being used at numerous other hospitals throughout China.”

Dr. Jialiu Liu, ‘Father of Jiaogulan’

Jiaogulan has been shown in studies to reduce tumor size, inhibit tumor growth and metastasis (spreading), cause apoptosis (tumor cell death) by increasing free-radical damage to cancer cells, and inhibit energy production in cancer cells.

Research has shown that Jiaogulan has many cancer fighting and prevention effects on a wide variety of cancers.

It enhances the body’s own defenses by protecting and boosting the immune system. A strong immune system is important for preventing the formation of tumors. With its exceptional antioxidant effects, Jiao gu lan scavenges free radicals within the body, minimizing DNA mutations that lead to tumors. (See the Antioxidant section for more information)
Its chemical components like 120 saponins (gypenosides), flavonoids and polysaccharides have direct anticancer action.
Jiaogulan has been shown in studies to reduce tumor size, inhibit tumor growth and metastasis (spreading), cause apoptosis (tumor cell death) by increasing free-radical damage to cancer cells, and inhibit energy production in cancer cells.

These effects have been demonstrated in several types of cancer, including:

Liver (hepatoma)104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112, 113
Lung114, 115, 116, 117, 118, 119, 120
Colorectal122, 123, 124, 125
Esophageal 122, 126
Oral127, 128, 129, 130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135
Stomach 137, 138
Skin (melanoma)139, 140
Uterus/cervix141, 142, 143
Leukaemia 144, 145, 146, 147
Sarcoma 147, 148
For those who choose to use the traditional methods of cancer treatment – chemotherapy and radiation therapy – Jiaogulan has shown to be an invaluable ally.

This is because it provides a very strong protection against the damaging effects these treatments have on the immune system. 149, 150, 151, 152, 153, 154

Jiaogulan was also found to diminish the overall damaging effects of drug toxicity from chemotherapy 137, 148, while at the same time boosting its effectiveness 125, 148.
