It can help overweight individuals to reduce weight and slight people to put on weight. It can help adjust blood sugar levels and reduce blood fat (hyperlipidaemia).

As an antioxidant, gynostemma boosts the immune system by increasing the number and activity level of white blood cells. It strengthens the digestive system by assisting in liver function. It helps relieve stress by soothing and relaxing the central nervous system. It is calming when one is overexcited and stimulating when one is depressed.

Studies using Gynostemma to treat diabetic patients (type II) showed a prompt improvement of glycaemia and insulin sensitivity thereby providing a basis for an effective and safe approach to treat the illness.
Studies into the anti-cancer activity of gynostemma have shown a significant inhibition rate on a broad cross section of cancer cells. Intensive studies are being conducted into both its anti cancer activity and its potential as an immune protection / prophylactic agent for HIV infected patients. There is research indicating that gynostemma may prevent cells from becoming cancerous in the first place and may disrupt cell division in existing cancer cell.
