Frequently Asked Questions About Our Jioagulan Tonic
Where does jioagulan grow?
Although it is now cultivated in many Asian countries, it is widely acknowledged that the best and most effective
jiaogulan grows in the forests and foothills of its original home in China.
How much jiaogulan is in your Jiaogulan Tonic?
The exact amount of jiaogulan, or of the other supernutrients contained in our Jiaogulan Tonic, is not disclosed. This is considered one of the
company's greatest intellectual assets. However, rest assured that each serving contains a highly efficacious amount of active ingredients specifically formulated to deliver maximum nutritional benefits.
What are gypenoside saponins?
Saponins are a diverse group of chemicals found throughout the plant kingdom, and many have been studied for their health benefits.
Jiaogulan contains an elite subgroup of saponins called gypenosides, which may prove to exert the most profound influence on human health. Their structure is similar to the chemical
structure of key hormones, and although gypenosides do not function as hormones, they have a remarkable ability to influence the body to produce a healthy balance of its own hormones. Jiaogulan
contains more saponins than any other plant, and its bioactive gypenosides are not found in any other species.
Does your Jiaogulan Tonic treat, cure or prevent disease?
No. It is not the purpose of a natural product such as our Jiaogulan Tonic to treat, cure, or prevent disease; the FDA only approves drugs to offer these benefits.
Is your Jiaogulan Tonic FDA approved?
There is no official approval process or certificate issued by the FDA to approve the sale of any food or dietary supplement.
The Food and Drug Administration has established stringent regulations, called Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), to ensure the safety and manufacturing of foods sold in the United States. Our Jiaogulan Tonic is
manufactured in a GMP-compliant facility.
What is the shelf life of your Jiaogulan Tonic?
Our Jiaogulan Tonic is guaranteed to be fully potent for two years from the manufacturing date when kept unopened under cool and dry
conditions. Product must be refrigerated upon opening and should be used within 30 days of opening.
Is your Jiaogulan Tonic safe?
Our Jiaogulan Tonic is extremely safe and jiaogulan has been consumed in Asia for thousands of years. However,
if you are pregnant or nursing, please seek out the advice of a nutritionally oriented medical practitioner before using
What is the recommended dosage of your Jiaogulan Tonic?
The daily dosage is flexible, depending upon one’s needs. We recommend starting with 1-2 ounces twice daily.
The bioactive gypenoside saponins have a slightly bitter flavor, which is balanced out by Jiaogulan’s natural flavor system. Because of this, some people may prefer to mix our Jiaogulan Tonic with
the beverage of their choice. This is perfectly fine and all the benefits of our Jiaogulan Tonic can still be enjoyed.
Can children drink your Jiaogulan Tonic?
Yes, children of all ages can enjoy our Jiaogulan Tonic, but the dosage can be reduced to ½-1 ounce once to twice daily for children under age 15.
Where is your Jiaogulan Tonic manufactured?
Our Jiaogulan Tonic is manufactured under Federal Good Manufacturing Practices at an FDA-compliant facility in
the United States from highest-quality ingredients that are sourced from reputable vendors around the world.
What is an adaptogen?
As the name suggests, plants known as adaptogens help the body to adapt. Whether it’s to physical, emotional, or chemical stresses, these special
herbs help your body cope better, allowing it to return to a state of balance (homeostasis). Adaptogens also help to maintain the strength and immune resistance of the entire organism.
What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants are nutrients that protect the cells in your body from oxidative damage. As the body uses oxygen,
there are by-products known as "free radicals" that can cause damage to cells. Antioxidants are known to denature these free radicals, and high antioxidant status in the body is associated
with a decreased risk of many chronic diseases. Many fruits and vegetables have high antioxidant capacity, and our Jiaogulan Tonic is outstanding in this regard. It provides the antioxidant capacity of 15
servings of fruits and vegetables in just 4 ounces.
Why does your Jiaogulan Tonic contain preservatives?
Preservatives help maintain a product’s freshness. Sodium benzoate, the sodium salt of benzoic acid, can prevent the growth of almost all microorganisms (e.g., yeast, bacteria, and fungi).
Benzoic acid is found naturally in tea, anise, most berries, cultured dairy products and cheese, cherry bark, and cassia bark. As a result of extensive safety data and long years of widespread
use, the United States government has determined sodium benzoate to be generally recognized as safe (GRAS). Our Jiaogulan Tonic contains less than one-tenth of one percent sodium benzoate, which is just
the right amount to keep harmful microbes from growing.
Potassium sorbate is a potassium salt version of sorbic acid, a polyunsaturated fat used to inhibit mold growth. Sorbic acid has been repeatedly tested for safety and efficacy,
and today stands as one of the most thoroughly tested food additives in history.
Why are there natural flavors in your Jiaogulan Tonic?
People in China have been drinking herbal tonics and remedies for generations, but for those outside of Asia, they may be an “acquired taste.” High-quality jiaogulan
is somewhat bitter by nature so our Jiaogulan Tonic is blended together with a small amount of organic cane juice, natural fruit juice, and natural flavor. Some people may prefer to mix
our Jiaogulan Tonic with the beverage of their choice. This is perfectly fine and all the benefits of our Jiaogulan Tonic can still be enjoyed.
