For longevity and radiant health
Gynostemma is one of the most sought-after and powerful tonic herbs on the planet. There’s a good reason for this; it seems to be curative, tonic and beneficial for just about everything!
That may seem a bold claim. But consider; it was discovered that the people in the original local region of China where gynostemma was traditionally taken had longer life spans, less disease and greater vitality than just about any other people in the world, with few exceptions.
The reason for the exceptional health and longevity of these people was their habit of having gynostemma every day, which they call ‘magic grass’. This discovery prompted extensive research into gynostemma by both Chinese and Japanese researchers. They have confirmed that it does indeed have tremendous benefits. Its popularity has grown exponentially in recent decades.
It’s excellent for keeping blood sugar balanced. It helps control appetite and is effective in assisting weight loss. It’s a top-class adaptogen, strengthening and fortifying you so that you are capable of dealing with whatever life throws at you. It’s good for the immune system too. I could go on and on!
While it seems to have these universal properties for health, gynostemma’s most interesting and exciting properties confirmed by the research is that it seems to be a life extender; it’s a longevity herb. Nor does it simply give you extra years in a nursing home. It adds life to your years as well as years to your life.
It seems that gynostemma has constituents that stop your DNA from being degraded and broken down too quickly. Gynostemma has been found to stop and even reverse the process of erosion of the telomeres. Telomeres are the ‘end caps’ on your strings of DNA, and the remaining length of your telomeres is a major factor governing your remaining life span. The effects of gynostemma on telomeres make it one of the most powerful longevity substances ever known.
You can do your own research on gynostemma by giving it a try! It’s completely safe, it has no bad side effects of any kind. A moderate dosage of gynostemma is awesome. You can try either the loose tea which is very easy to prepare; you just steep it in hot water just as you would normal tea, or you can make it in a cafetiere/coffee press just as you would fresh coffee. The herbal extract is even easier; you just add hot water to it in a mug and drink it, and you have all of those amazing benefits.
Gynostemma has a pleasant taste compared to most tonic herbs, sweet with a slightly bitter edge. Most people in the know about tonic herbs see it as a staple, as a have-it-every-day-for-the-rest-of-my-life kind of herb. I personally have it every day too. I highly recommend you give it a go. You won’t regret it.
