Gynostemma, scientifically known as Gynostemma pentaphyllum, has been called many illustrious names: herb of the immortals, miracle grass, sweet tea vine, five-leaf ginseng, and fairy herb. It is among the classification of herbs known as adaptogens.
Adaptogens are plants that are very adaptable, hence the name, and are usually thought to tolerate and respond well to environmental stressors. These properties are then transferred to herbal preparations. Consuming the herbal prepation of an adaptogen, such as Gynostemma, helps the body better respond to, and deal with stress. It encourages finding homeostasis, returning to balance, and enhancing longevity.
