Jiaogulan (part 3)
In the previous Jiaogulan posts (part 1 and part 2) I talked about the many health benefits from drinking Jiaogulan that arise from both its vasodilatory and adaptogenic properties. Thanks to everyone who has sent me questions or comments. They were great. Today I want to mention the last major health benefit of Jiaogulan, its antioxidant properties.
We've all heard about the benefits of antioxidants. They help counter the effects of aging, boost our immune system and help ward off many cancers. Many foods have lots of antioxidants, blue berries, orange juice, eggplants and even onions to name just a few. But, a small percentage of those helpful antioxidants make it into our bodies. That's because most of them are destroyed during the digestive process.
However, many people don't realize that our bodies naturally produce an antioxidant called Super Oxide Dismutase, SOD for short. If only we could boost our production SOD… That's where Jiaogulan comes in. Jiaogulan has been shown in scientific studies to increase production of SOD.
By drinking Jiaogulan you get all the health benefits antioxidants in a far more effective way by increasing your own natural production of them. Give it a try.
