Circulation is vital to good health and nutrition – that is why proper circulation is essential for health and longevity. Although many people may be familiar with veins and arteries, they may not know most of the vital functions of circulation are actually performed in the micro-circulation network of capillaries.
These tiny blood vessels many of which are only 1/10th the diameter of a human hair are essential for delivering oxygen and nutrients to the body’s organs and tissues, and also for removing carbon dioxide, metabolic wastes, and toxins. The human microcirculation network is vast, containing more than 18,000 miles of capillaries to feed the body’s 10 trillion cells.
Jiaogulan helps increase nitric oxide in the blood stream which can greatly improve circulation. Statistical analysis showed that Jiaogulan Tonic significantly increased circulation by as much as 60 percent over baseline level, and that micro circulation was still improved over baseline even six hours after intake.
The Chinese herb jiaogulan has attracted the interest of scientists because of its demonstrated ability to increase microcirculation in in vitro laboratory studies. …jiaogulan’s circulation-enhancing effects result from increased nitric oxide release in the capillaries,which is mediated by bioactive jiaogulan compounds known as gypenoside saponins.
