balance between other organs' functions, thereby bolstering stability of the body as a whole. This results in better brain function, increased endurance, and resistance to illness and injury.
Jiaogulan has one of the highest levels of antioxidants known. Antioxidants are an important factor in treating cancer, liver disease, diabetes, arteriosclerosis, arthritis inflammation and even the aging process. Penta (Jiaogulan) has been proven in many studies to have a powerful antioxidant effect, by protecting the body from free radical damage.
Reducing Blood Pressure, Preventing Strokes and Heart Attacks. Penta dramatically decreases the chances of a stroke by inhibiting blood platelets from "sticking together," which prevents the formation of stroke-inducing blood clots. This same action prevents artery clogging, thereby reducing risk of a heart attack. Also, studies show that in as little as two weeks, a small dose of Penta taken daily, lowers high blood pressure to a normal range. By increasing production of nitric oxide - a chemical that relaxes blood vessel walls - the herb effectively reduces the blood pressure. In addition, Jiaogulan reduces cholesterol by about 25%.
Building Up the Immune System. In China, doctors prescribe daily doses of Jiaogulan (Penta) for patients recovering from heart and brain surgery. Why? Because the herb supports the immune system, aiding in a quicker and more effective recovery. Patients undergoing cancer therapies such as radiation and chemotherapy receive Jiaogulan as well. Research has shown that Jiaogulan can increase the white blood cell count, which strengthens resistance, thus improving the patients' ability to recover.
Improving Cardiovascular Function. Athletes use the herb to enhance their performance, as Penta has been found to enhance the heart pumping function, improving contractility of the heart muscle. Endurance during heightened physical activity and recovery afterwards are the most pronounced benefits.
