Chinese Herbs for Cholesterol Hyperlipidemia and Hypertension

Two of the best Chinese herbs for hyperlipidemia high cholesterol are Fructus Crataegi Shan Zha (Chinese Hawthorn) and Gynostemma Pentaphyllum (Jiaogulan). These Chinese herbs reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke by not only lowering cholesterol, but also by lowering your blood pressure.

Cholesterol comes in two forms, "good" cholesterol (HDL) and "bad" cholesterol (LDL). Eating the wrong fats raises your bad (LDL) cholesterol level. People with high cholesterol need to avoid eating unhealthy fats such as margarine, most vegetable oils and too much animal fat.

Increase your blood pressure, decrease your life expectancy. The ongoing Framingham Heart Study shows that total life expectancy for people at age 50 with normal blood pressure is about five years longer than those of the same age with high blood pressure.

When you have high blood pressure, or hypertension, the force of blood against your artery walls is too strong. High blood pressure can damage your arteries, heart and kidneys. Nobody knows what a fatal heart attack feels like. There are no survivors to tell us.

Regardless of race or gender, anyone diagnosed with both high blood pressure and high cholesterol is at greater danger for heart disease and stroke than people without these combined conditions.


Chinese hawthorn helps to eliminate accumulations, promotes energy flow and disperses coagulations. Chinese hawthorn activates the blood, brings down blood pressure, aids digestion, treats "fatty liver," and reduces lipid levels in the blood.

Chinese hawthorn has been used medicinally in China for 2500 years. Chinese hawthorn decreases total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and also the size of existing atherosclerotic plaques. OPCs (oligomeric procyanidins) stimulate the release of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (ENOS), an enzyme that increases the levels of nitric oxide. It has powerful antioxidant activity of both phenolic proanthocyanidins and flavonoids.


Gynostemma (Jiaogulan) decreases the chances of a stroke by inhibiting blood platelets from sticking together, which helps prevent blood clots from forming. Gynostemma also helps prevent clogged arteries, reducing the risk of a heart attack. By increasing nitric oxide, a chemical that relaxes blood vessel walls, it reduces blood pressure. Gynostemma also reduces cholesterol by about 25%.

Gynostemma is an adaptogenic, immune modulating, anti-inflammatory, anti-hyperlipidemic, liver protecting, triglyceride lowering, cholesterol, platelet and blood pressure regulator.

Gynostemma contains a large quantity of saponins, also known as gypenosides. Saponins inhibit the formation of lipid peroxides and influence the function of enzymes in the heart and liver. They decrease blood coagulation, cholesterol and sugar levels in the blood. They also stimulate the immune system.

Gypenoside constitutients lower blood pressure, heart rate and blood vessel resistance, inhibit platelet aggregation and increase coronary blood flow. There are number of gypenosides in Gynostemma that are identical to the ginosides found in ginseng.


The combination of Gynostemma and Chinese Hawthorn is enhanced by adding another herb from Asia. An extract from a small tree found across Arabia and India also helps to reduce cholesterol. Guggul (Commiphora mukul) has been used in Ayurvedic medicine, a traditional Hindu medicine, for over 2,000 years.

A JAMA report in 2003, did not show guggul to have any significant effect on lowering cholesterol levels for western diets, which contradicted a large body of previous research that showed guggul to be helpful in reducing cholesterol. The report was re-analyzed to show that guggul was able to lower fasting blood sugar, insulin levels and blood pressure. It also showed that guggul has anti-inflammatory properties.

We call the combination of Gynostemma, Chinese Hawthorn and Guggul - Advanced Cholesterol. No other product has combined all three of these herbs from Asia. They reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke by not only lowering cholesterol, but also by lowering your blood pressure.
