Jiaogulan serves as a very powerful herb to improve multiple markers of health, optimise hormones and improve brain function (Nootropic properties).
- Reputable adaptogen that supports stress and cortisol (23).
- Ameliorates stress induced anxiety, whilst supporting health energy levels (24).
- Improves heart contractility and efficiency (6, 7, 8, 9).
- Protects and stimulates the production of Nitric Oxide (1,2,3,4) which leads to increased blood flow throughout the body, as arteries are relaxed and dilated. Nitric Oxide is also an essential molecule for proper erectyle and sexual function (5).
- Improves heart function efficiency, thereby enhancing endurance capacity and overall stamina, particularly for aerobic endurance events (6,7,8,9).
- Stimulating the production of the body’s strongest endogenous antioxidants glutathione and superoxide dismutase, leading to anti-fatigue effects (10).
- Restorative effect on the dopamine system, thus leading to enhanced motivation, drive and performance capacity. Unique in its proven abilities to promote healing of the dopaminergic system, rather than just prevent degradation (15, 16).
- Significantly increases BDNF levels in the brain, which is the same brain-response when you exercise. BDNF is important for long-term memory and helps grow new neurons from neural stem cells (neurogenesis) (17).
- Highly neuroprotective (18).
- Anti Alzheimer’s effects (19).
- Reduces anxiety by modulating levels of serotonin, dopamine and corticosterone (20).
- Mitigates/Fights memory impairment by toxin exposure and chemical damage (21, 22).
- Safely activates AMPK, an enzyme which is a critical metabolic primer for weight loss and improved body composition (11,12,13).
- Reduces body fat %, increases lean body mass (14), without any changes to diet and lifestyle.
