About our organic gynostemma powder
Gynostemma is also known as ‘Southern Ginseng’ and the ‘Miracle Green’. The delicate, bright green leaves of the low growing plant are regarded as one of Asia’s most beneficial herbs for longevity.
It is probably one of the best studied herbs of traditional Chinese medicine and in the 1970’s gynostemma was originally researched and studied by scientists for its sweet components and benefits as a natural sugar substitute. During this time it was discovered that the leaves actually contain high amounts of saponins, four of which are also found in the panax ginseng root.
Currently one of the most popular herbs in Asia, it is regarded as a quintessential herbal tea to promote a healthy long life, enhancing immunologic, respiratory, neurological, cardiovascular, endocrine and metabolic systems.
Gynostemma powder can be made into a tea or fruit juice, it can be encapsulated or added to a herbal powder blend.
Add ½ – ¾ teaspoon of powder per 1 cup of hot water, leave to infuse for 15 minutes.
