"There was a time I was always
in shape. I ran regularly, and
went to a gym twice a week. When I got married, and had 2 kids, I was so busy, I gained 30
pounds.

I was looking for a way to help
me drop 15 pounds. A friend told
me she had success with tea. So I went on the web and found Wu Yi Tea. I placed an order, and have been drinking it for about 3 weeks. To my surprise, I lost 14 pounds.

I'm going to keep drinking it and look forward to reaching my former weight!"

Sarah W.



"I travel alot for business. Staying at all different types of hotels, and not always being able to eat right, I tend to gain weight.

The last business trip I was on I travelled with a colleague of mine who suggested I try to exercise in the gym at what ever hotel I stay at on a regular basis to keep my weight down.

I tried it but couldn't stay with it. A friend told me about Wu Yi Tea.
I admit I was skeptical. I ordered
some tea, and had 2 cups every day for 4 weeks. I took a box on my business trips, so I can keep with it.

Success! I lost 15 pounds in 4 weeks. I'm amazed! I'm going to stay with Wu Yi Tea, and look forward to getting to my target weight before I started travelling."

Wu Yi Rock Tea comes from the Wu Yi Shan, Wu Yi Mountain, in Fujian, China. Only tea from this region can be considered authentic Wu Yi Cha. It is incredibly flavorful tea from the stems of the tea plants among the rocks in the Wu Yi Mountains, so it is also called "Wu Yi Rock Tea". It is the best and rarest tea among all teas from the region. Its supply is extremely limited due to the limited growing area. Its enormous weight loss function has been recognized worldwide.

Jiaogulan has been used by the people in the mountainous regions of Southern China as an energizing agent. They would take it before work to increase endurance and strength, and after work to relieve fatigue. It has also been taken for general health and has been recognized as a rejuvenating elixir. The inhabitants would drink jiaogulan tea instead of the more common tea and as a result many people there were living to 100 years of age. People also used it for treating common colds and other infectious diseases. Hence, the local Chinese people called jiaogulan, the "Immortality Herb", and described it thus: "Like ginseng but better than ginseng."

EGCG is the active part in tea polyphenol that are responsible for increasing metabolism which speeds up calorie burning. It is also much more powerful than vitamins like A, C and E.

 
Jiaogulan
 
Gynostemma pentaphyllum, also called jiaogulan (is an herbaceous vine of the family Cucurbitaceae (cucumber or gourd family) indigenous to the southern reaches of China, southern Korea and Japan. Jiaogulan is best known as an herbal medicine reputed to have powerful antioxidant and adaptogenic effects that increase longevity.

Jiaogulan is consumed primarily as a tea, and is also used as a natural sweetener in Japan[citation needed]. It is known as an adaptogen and antioxidant and has been found to increase superoxide dismutase (SOD) which is a powerful endogenous cellular antioxidant. Studies have found it increases the activities of macrophages, T lymphocytes and natural killer cells and that it acts as a tumor inhibitor. Due to its adaptogenic effects it is frequently referred to as "Southern Ginseng," although it is not closely related to true Panax ginseng. Its adaptogenic constituents include the triterpenoid saponins gypenosides which are closely structurally related to the ginsenosides from the well-known medicinal plant ginseng. It has been shown to lower cholesterol levels in human studies.

The plant is best known for its use as an herbal medicine in traditional Chinese medicine, although its inclusion in Wu Qi-Jun's 1848 botany book Zhi Wu Ming Shi Tu Kao Chang Bian discusses a few medicinal uses and seems to be the earliest known documentation of the herb. Prior to that, Jiaogulan was cited as a survival food in Zu Xio's 1406 book Materia Medica for Famine. Until recently it was a locally known herb used primarily in regions of southern China. It is described by the local inhabitants as the immortality herb, because people within the Guizhou Province, where jiaogulan tea is drunk regularly, have a history of living to a very old age.[3][4] Most research has been done since the 1960s when the Chinese realized that it might be an inexpensive source for adaptogenic compounds, taking pressure off of ginseng stock.

Adaptogenic herbs are nontoxic in normal doses, produce a nonspecific defensive response to stress, and have a normalizing influence on the body. They normalize the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis). As defined, adaptogens constitute a new class of natural, homeostatic metabolic regulators.[3] However they are also functional at the level of allostasis which is a more dynamic reaction to long term stress, lacking the fixed reference points of homeostasis. Jiaogulan is a calming adaptogen which is also useful in formula with codonopsis for jet lag and altitude sickness.

More About Jiaogulan

Jiaogulan (Gynostemma pentaphyllum), is a plant that grows wild in China, as well as many other countries throughout Asia. In China, it has been used for many years as a medicinal and energizing tea in the local regions where it grows. Jiaogulan is sometimes called "Southern Ginseng", since it grows in south central China and because of its similarity to ginseng in chemical composition and function. It is also praised as Xiancao, "Immortality" Herb, because it grows wild and has many health-giving qualities and anti-aging effects.

In the late 1970s, Japanese scientists began discovering jiaogulan's illness-prevention and therapeutic qualities. What they uncovered was an herb very similar in quality to ginseng, yet in some ways superior. They found jiaogulan to function as both an adaptogenic herb and as an antioxidant herb, containing many health-giving saponins (chemical compounds having a soapy characteristic), as well as trace minerals, amino acids, proteins, and vitamins.

Jiaogulan contains a large quantity of these saponins, known also as gypenosides. The structure of the gypenosides is very similar to the panaxosides (also known as ginsenosides) found in ginseng. There are four times as many saponins in jiaogulan as there is in ginseng. Some of those saponins are identical to the panaxosides in ginseng and some of them turn into panaxosides when taken into the body. This results in a greater number of saponins than ginseng, which may translate into a more powerful regulatory effect on a number of bodily systems; like blood pressure, the reproductive system, the digestive system, the immune system, mental functions and more. 1, 2

Wild Jiaogulan Herb
Gynostemma pentaphyllum

Scientific research studies in China have shown that jiaogulan decreases cholesterol by improving the liver's ability to send sugar and carbohydrates to the muscles for conversion to energy instead of turning the sugar into triglycerides which the body stores as fat. 3 It lowers LDL's (bad cholesterol) while raising HDL's (good cholesterol). It improves fat metabolism, reduces blood fat levels and depresses lipid peroxide and fat sediment in the blood vessels. 4

While it is great for rectifying high cholesterol and obesity problems, it can also improve and strengthen the digestion, allowing an underweight person to increase absorption of nutrients and gain weight in the form of lean muscle mass. This regulatory effect on bodily functions is the hallmark of an adaptogen. 5

A study at Guiyang Medical College in China has shown that a jiaogulan recipe increased strength and endurance in the body. Considering the above statements overall, jiaogulan becomes the perfect herb for anyone who wants to improve their competitive edge in any field of athletic performance. 6

Adaptogenic functions of jiaogulan are demonstrated in its biphasic effects on brain functions, which energize or calm the system depending upon the body’s need. 7 Jiaogulan also aids the regulation of hormonal functions in both men and women. The healthy maintenance of these physiological actions plays a major role in the body's ability to cope with stress. 8 Jiaogulan has also shown its effectiveness, in clinical research studies, in helping the body resist depression of the immune system and other stress-related symptoms. It increases the production of Lymphocytes, Phagocytes and serum IgG, but not to an excess. 9

Jiaogulan has also demonstrated anti-inflammatory activities through its many saponins. 10 Jiaogulan also helps the body to resist depression of the immune system and other stress-related symptoms. 11, 12 Furthermore there are other clinical research studies, which indicate jiaogulan's ability to reduce tumor size. 13,14 It can even lower high blood pressure. 15

In China jiaogulan is praised as the “Herb of Immortality,” due to its many health giving qualities and anti-aging effects.

EGCG
 
Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is a type of catechin and is the most abundant catechin in tea.
According to one researcher epigallocatechin-3-gallate is an antioxidant that helps protect the skin from UV radiation-induced damage and tumor formation. It also has antioxidant properties and it is under study for multiple sclerosis.

The health benefits of catechins have been studied extensively in humans and in animal models. Reduction in atherosclerotic plaques was seen in animal models. Reduction in carcinogenesis was seen in vitro. Many studies on health benefits have been linked to the catechin content. According to Norman Hollenberg, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, epicatechin can reduce the risk of four of the major health problems: stroke, heart failure, cancer and diabetes. He studied the Kuna people in Panama, who drink up to 40 cups of cocoa a week, and found that the prevalence of the "big four" is less than 10%. He believes that epicatechin should be considered essential to the diet and thus classed as a vitamin.[1]Science Daily March 12, 2007

Blue Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera)
Nelumbo nucifera is known by a number of common names, including blue lotus, Indian lotus, sacred lotus, bean of India, and sacred water-lily. Botanically, Nelumbo nucifera (Gaertn.) may also be referred to by its former names, Nelumbium speciosum (Wild.) or Nymphaea nelumbo. This plant is an aquatic perennial, but if its seeds are preserved under favorable circumstances, they may remain viable for many years.
In Ancient Egypt, Nelumbo nucifera was unknown, being introduced only at the time of the Persian invasions, late in ancient Egyptian history. The ancient Egyptians venerated the blue water-lily, Nymphaea caerulea, which was sometimes known as the "blue lotus" or "sacred lotus". N. nucifera was native to a huge area from modern Vietnam to Afghanistan, being spread widely as an ornamental and food plant. In 1787 it was first brought into horticulture in Western Europe as a stove-house water-lily under the patronage of Joseph Banks and can be seen in botanical garden collections where heating is provided. Today it is rare or extinct in the wild in Africa but widely naturalized in southern Asia and Australia, where it is commonly cultivated in water gardens. It is the National Flower of India and Vietnam.

The flowers, seeds, young leaves, and "roots" (rhizomes) are all edible. In Asia, the petals are sometimes used for garnish, while the large leaves are used as a wrap for food. The rhizome in Chinese, bhe in some parts of India and Pakistan, and renkon in Japanese) are used as a vegetable in soups and stir-fried dishes. Petals, leaves, and rhizome can also all be eaten raw, but there is a risk of parasite transmission (e.g. Fasciolopsis buski): it is therefore recommended that they are cooked before eating.
Chinese people have long known that Lotus roots are a very healthy food and have been using them in this way for many centuries. Recent studies confirm this - Lotus roots were found to be rich in dietary fiber, vitamin C, potassium, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B6, phosphorus, copper, and manganese while very low in saturated fat.

Eating Lotus seeds
The stamens can be dried and made into a fragrant herbal tea called liánhu? cha (in Chinese, or (particularly in Vietnam) used to impart a scent to tea leaves. The lotus seeds or nuts (called lianzi or xian liianzi in Chinese) are quite versatile, and can be eaten raw or dried and popped like popcorn. They can also be boiled down until soft and made into a paste, or boiled with dried longans and rock sugar to made a tong sui (sweet soup). Combined with sugar, lotus seed paste becomes one of the most common ingredient used in pastries such as mooncakes, daifuku, and rice flour pudding.

Various parts of the sacred lotus are also used in traditional Asian herbal medicine. Lotus seeds called Phool Mukhana is also used in Indian cooking.

The distinctive dried seed heads, which resemble the spouts of watering cansphoto are widely sold throughout the world for decorative purposes and for dried flower arranging.

Wu Yi Tea Plus
From Wu Yi Mountains
Fujian, China


The Mount Wuyi Scenic Area lies to the south of Wuyishan City, Fujian Province. Mount Wuyi is famous for its natural conservation of a large number of ancient plant species, wild animals and reptiles, many of which are peculiar to China. Its tranquil beauty and intact environment offer a refuge to the primitive forest, so it is called the 'Natural Arboretum'. The Mount Wuyi Scenic Area incorporates the Wuyi Canyon Drifting, the Mount Longjing and the Ancient Xiamei Folk Buildings and so on.

Firstly, we come to the Wuyi Canyon which is a good place to drift along the water. The Wuyi Canyon is 14 kilometers (about 8.70 miles) long with a drop of 150 meters (about 492 feet) along its length. Tourists may drift on the water for 6 kilometers (about 3.73 miles). This stretch of water belongs to Tongmu Brook which is one of the sources of Nine Bends Brook that meanders between rocks and gorges. When drifting smoothly with the water's flow, you will appreciate the lush trees on spectacular mountains as well as the fish swimming in the brook. A refreshing cool breeze brushes past you as you feel the splash of water upon your face where the water rushes through the narrows between high cliffs. Altogether an exciting adventure in awe-inspiring surroundings!

Then we come to the Mount Longjing, on the southeast of Mount Wuyi. Mount Longjing enjoys a pleasant climate, warm in summer and cool in winter. Here you will find a good number of rare wild animals living on the land and plentiful vegetation covering the fertile earth. All year round, wild flowers bloom and trees thrive. There is the Qiyu Hall on the Mount Longjing. Since the Song Dynasty (960 - 1279), Qiyu Hall had been a place where people interceded for rain and other blessings from the gods. When there was a drought the local people from some distance around would travel to the hall and pray for rain. Thanks to the serene environment, Mount Longjing is an ideal place for relaxation and outdoors activities.

After seeing the natural wonders, you may as well take a look at the Ancient Xiamei Folk Buildings, located 12 kilometers (about 7.46 miles) southeast of Wuyishan City. Walking in the Xiamei Village with its profound culture and rich history, it carries you back in time to the Ming (1368 - 1644) and the Qing (1644 - 1911) Dynasties. Most of buildings are very well preserved. Xiamei village is also a famous distribution center for tea produced in Mount Wuyi. Tea merchants constructed more than 70 houses in this village. Also, there are other well-designed senior officials' and Confucian scholars' houses.

Finally, drinking a cup of Chinese tea should not be missed. Tea is wonderfully refreshing when taking a rest in a teahouse. Chinese tea is a kind of culture. When you drink tea for the first time, you will be impressed by its bittersweet taste which means pleasure comes through toil in Chinese. Tea is full of flavor and fragrance. The Bohea and the Oolong grow in the Mount Wuyi. Bohea is the variety of tea that grows on the mist-covered Mount Wuyi. The Oolong is another variety of tea with relatively strong flavor.

Only by coming to the Mount Wuyi Scenic Area, can you see the serene beauty. Its vast green waves of row upon row of verdant mountains attract a constant stream of visitors both from home and abroad.
