CHINESE TARGET (Gynostemma pentaphyllum), also known as jiaogulan, is a plant native to China, where it has long been used in natural medicine. Chinese tarragon is often referred to as the „immortality plant” because of its many health benefits, which are attributed to its content of unique compounds called gypenosides. Gypenosides are similar to saponins found in ginseng, which is why Chinese targana is sometimes referred to as southern ginseng.

Here are some of the main health benefits associated with Chinese astragalus:

  • Adaptogenic properties: Chinese astragalus has adaptogenic properties, meaning that it helps the body cope with stress, both physical and emotional. This can translate into improved physical and mental performance and better stress tolerance.
  • Cardiovascular support. Chinese targana may have an effect on lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels, which is beneficial for heart health. In addition, it can promote proper circulation and counteract the formation of blood clots.
  • Antioxidant and anti-cancer properties: Chinese arrowroot contains antioxidant compounds that protect cells from free radical damage. Studies also suggest that gypenosides may exhibit anticancer effects.
  • Immune system support. May have the effect of stimulating the immune system, which helps fight infections and supports the body’s overall immunity.
