Gu-Lan Tea Health Benefits

Health Benefits - Research and Studies

May assist healthy weight loss and boost energy.*

A high fat diet causes weight gain by increasing LDL and insulin levels. Studies show that the nutrients in Gu-Lan tea may help decrease the absorption of fats in the stomach and assist in inhibiting the increase in insulin levels, one normally experiences after eating high fat meals. The results have been shown to be particularly promising on dissolving the fats from various kinds of meat in the stomach.

Gu-Lan tea has been used in Japan as part of healthy diet plans for weight loss. In a study done obese patients were given good quality Gu-Lan tea in the morning and afternoon. Most patients significantly lost a lot of weight. Polysaccharides found in Gu-Lan tea were shown to reduce body weight by assisting the conversion of food into energy instead of fat.

May assist in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels.*

A diet high in fat, rich in meats and poor in whole grains and vegetables, causes weight gain by increasing LDL and insulin levels. Scientific studies have confirmed the properties in Gu-Lan tea may assist the regulation of serum cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL (low density lipids, more commonly referred to as bad cholesterol), and HDL (high density lipids, also known as good cholesterol, which helps to metabolize cholesterol from the arteries).

The gypenosides (GPs) found in Gu-Lan tea has been shown to help lower total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and assist increase HDL cholesterol. More than 20 papers have been published on the subject with effectiveness reported as ranging from 67 to 93%.

The experiments on the mice and rabbits which had been fed with high sugar and high fat food and suffering from hyperlipemia shows that being fed with GPs for 4-7 weeks, the total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol had been dramatically reduced and the increase of the LPO had been controlled.

The rabbits with serious hyperlipemia been fed with high doses of GPs extracted they obviously reduced TC, TG and LDL and increased the HDL/LDC values. This indicates Gu-Lan tea may help enhance the release of nitric oxide in the body, which may help to relax the coronary blood vessels.

Has been shown to help maintain healthy blood pressure.*

Gu-Lan tea has been widely reported to be effective in assisting in maintaining healthy blood pressure. Although the exact mechanism is still being researched, studies have shown that Gu-Lan tea may help improve the metabolism of the heart directly as well as help enhance the release of nitric oxide in the body and assist in stimulating of the nervous system (responsible for all internal organs), which helps to relax the coronary blood vessels and arterial walls, allowing them to expand and may lead to lower blood pressure.

May help maintaining cardiovascular health.*

Gu-Lan tea may help maintain healthy cardiac function. In a study combined with some other herbs heart stroke volume increased 37% and cardiac output increased by 21% on the average. Ejection fraction increased by 13%. Subjects had normal blood pressure which did not change although heart rate decreased by 10%.

May help support immunity and raise energy levels.*

Gu-Lan tea has been shown to support the immune system when under stress from various destructive agents. It has also shown effectiveness, in clinical research studies, as a potent immunomodulator. It has been shown to help increase the production of lymphocytes, phagocytes, and serum IGG. Results from human studies confirm that properties in Gu-Lan tea may help enhance the contractility of the heart muscle and heart pumping function. Other studies have shown that the saponins in Gu-Lan tea may help increase strength and endurance in the body. Considering these findings overall, it may have become an energy boosting tea for those who wants to improve his competitive edge in any field of athletic performance.

The impact of taking Gu-Lan tea

This Gu-Lan tea has attracted the interest of scientists because of it has been shown to help increase Micro circulation in vitro laboratory studies. According to noted pathologist and medical professor Dr. Jialiu Liu, Gu-Lan tea properties’ circulation-enhancing effects result from increased nitric oxide release in the capillaries, which is mediated by bioactive Gu-Lan tea compounds known as gypenoside saponins.”

May help promote good mood.*

The benefits of HGH include assisting: reduction of body fat, better sleep, improved memory, accelerated healing, restored libido and a more youthful appearance.

The polysaccharides found in Gu-Lan tea may help enhance the body's production of human growth hormone (HGH), which may help build muscle and repair skin cells. The LBP polysaccharide complex unique to Gu-Lan tea has been found to be a powerful secretagogue - a substance that stimulates the secretion of human growth hormone (HGH) by the pituitary gland.

May help contribute to the maintaining of healthy kidney, reproductive systems, and libido.*

Scientists found that overheating increased oxidative stress in the tubules. They theorized that this increased free-radical production was the culprit in decreasing sperm production. The antioxidants in Gu-Lan tea have been shown to help reverse the effects of overheating on sperm production. They have been shown to help increase the sperm count and the vitality of the sperm. Studies have shown an increased and strengthen sperm count and sperm vitality could help male infertility.

Gu-Lan tea may also help support the female reproductive system. It has been used as part of the diet for women with premature ovarian failure. Research shows that nutrients in Gu-Lan tea may help contribute to the assistance with female infertility in patients with premature ovarian failure (POF). These nutrients have also been shown to help relieve women’s dysmenorrhoea and blood stasis syndromes caused by lack of menstruation and after giving birth.

Studies have shown that antioxidants in Gu-Lan tea may help increase testosterone level in the blood, thereby may assisting in increasing libido in both men and women. There are reports from Gu-Lan tea users of increased libido after drinking Gu-Lan tea.

Gu-Lan tea has been shown to have a biphasic effect on energizing or calming the system depending upon need. The healthy maintenance of these physiological actions plays a major role in the body's ability to cope with stress. The tea has also been shown to help modulate the nervous system. It may help calm an overexcited nervous system and stimulate a depressed one.

300 professional athletes were the subject of a study. All the athletes reported that taking highly concentrated gu-lan tea before competition made them vigorous and alert with quick reflexes. Yet, it also made them less nervous.

With regards to insomnia - 112 patients using Gu-Lan tea during the day reported a sleep improvement of 89 to 95 percent.

May help promote healthy brain and memory.*

Gu-Lan tea has been shown to have a biphasic effect on brain functions. Its antioxidants may also be considered as "brain tonic", because the tea contains betaine, which is converted in the body into choline, substances that has been shown to help enhance memory and recall ability.

The tea has been shown be a natural and safe solution to assist with indigestion, food retention and qi stagnation, abdominal distension and constipated.

Antioxidant properties.*

The properties in Gu-Lan tea have been shown in tests to help lower the amount of superoxide radical and hydrogen peroxide in certain white blood cells, an excellent indicator of antioxidant activity. They have been shown to help support immune response, and they may also help increase the body’s antioxidant power so that it is better able to mop up the dangerous free radicals that are generated after UV exposure.

Gu-Lan tea has also been shown the property of assisting in increasing endogenous SOD (Superoxide Dismutase) in the body. SOD is one of the body‘s most important antioxidants and studies show that charting SOD levels in various animal species is a reliable indicator of their longevity. Trials in humans have shown that SOD levels returned to youthful levels after taking 20 mg of GPs daily for one month.

Properties in Gu-Lan tea may help increase the number of generations of human cells, which may help increase lifespan. In an experiment, with GPs (from Gu-Lan tea) being added, the number of generations of the skin cell increased from 22 generations to 27; and the number of generations of the 2PS cells increased from 51 generations to 59.

May help support healthy eyes.*

It was found in the study that Gu-Lan tea may help to reduce the time it takes for vision to adapt to darkness. The carotenoids found in Gu-Lan tea may also contribute to maintenance of healthy eyes.

May help support liver balance.*

100 patients were given Gu-Lan tea for 3 months. Effectiveness was rated at 89%. Another study of 200 patients yielded similar results. Other studies showed gypenosides in Gu-Lan tea may help to protect the liver from various toxic chemicals such as carbon tetrachloride.
