What is Jujube extract 2% | Ziziphus jujuba?

Properties: The fruits of Ziziphus jujuba – called jujube red dates because of their distinctive color – are… simply healthy. “Just like a typical fruit” – someone would say. And that person would be right. By eating these fruits you will support the immune system in the fight against pathogens. It also helps to prevent atherosclerosis and improves the skin condition. Many fruits can act the same way. So what makes Ziziphus jujuba unique after all? Jujube fruits have already been recommended for people with nervousness and sleep problems in ancient times. It was believed (rightly) that jujube helped to calm down and effectively accelerated falling asleep. Today, we know that this effect is related to the beneficial effect of active compounds on the GABA neurotransmitter management. GABA plays a key role in preparing the body for rest. It also allows us to “slow down” after a stressful day and simply relax. What’s more, it makes us better adapted to stress during the day while resting at night becomes much easier.

Another unique property of Ziziphus jujuba is the ability to intensify the processes of neurogenesis. That is – to put it simply – a process of creating new nerve connections. They arise one each time, we successfully absorb new information or learn to do something properly. The growth of new cells and their ability to form interconnections is thus supported. This way we can improve the functioning of memory and enhance cognitive abilities.
Although jujube fruits taste like ordinary apples, they are far from being ordinary. Especially today – when we are constantly bombarded with information that needs to be screened and then rejected or assimilated, and excessive stress is the cause of many civilization diseases – it is really important to support natural processes. If you don’t have time to use relaxation techniques in this fast-paced world, and you have trouble getting up after spending up to 10 minutes in the lotus pose (padmasana) – try Ziziphus jujuba fruit extract.

Occurrence: The common jujube (Ziziphus jujuba) is a shrub belonging to the buckthorn family (Rhamnaceae). Its fruits taste like apples and look like dates. This is why they are called red or Chinese dates. The fully ripe fruits turn reddish-brown or even purple-black. They are a herbal raw material. In natural conditions, Jujube can grow up to 10 meters in height. It occurs in Southern Europe, China, India and the Himalayas. In traditional medicine of China, Korea and Japan, jujube is used as an agent with sedative, analgesic, immune-stimulating and strengthening effects. In traditional Persian medicine (Unami), it has been combined with other herbs for colds, flu and coughs. The fact that the fruit of the Z. jujuba has been consumed by humans for thousands of years is supported by a note found in a poetic text dated around 1046-771 BC. The fruits also had a ritual significance – they were found in the Chinese Mawangdui tomb from the 2nd century BC.

Biochemistry: Ziziphus jujuba owes its unique features to jujubosides (A, B, C, D). Chemically, jujubosides are triterpene saponins. The fruits also contain: polyphenols, flavonoids (rutin, caffeic acid, etc.), polysaccharides, alkaloids, sterols, tannins, fatty acids, micro- and macroelements (selenium, zinc, iron, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium, manganese) as well as  B, C, A, E vitamins.

Fun fact: Jujube has been used for centuries in the culinary arts of many Asian countries. The fruits are usually pickled or stored in brine. They are used to make wine and sweet syrups. Dried jujube fruit can be used as a coffee substitute. In China, jujube paste is used as a filling for zongzi – rice balls prepared for the Dragon Boat Festival, and is also an essential ingredient in the Laba congee eaten at the end of the lunar year. In Korea, the traditional Daechu-cha tea is made from dried jujube fruits.

How does Jujube extract 2% | Ziziphus jujuba work?

Increases stress resilience: GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, sometimes referred to as “the sedative for the brain.” It calms down unnecessary and redundant nerve impulses, preventing excessive stimulation of the nervous system and the entire body. The scientific results have shown that the active compounds of jujube stimulate the activity of this neurotransmitter. This is because they increase the concentration of the enzyme key for the production of its molecules. In this way, Ziziphus jujuba supports a sense of inner comfort, stabilizes the mood and helps to cope with stress and anxiety.

Improves sleep quality: Traditional Chinese medicine treats jujube as an effective sleep aid. It is recommended especially to people who suffer from insomnia as a result of stress or anxiety disorders. Studies with animal models have shown that the biologically active compounds present in this plant significantly accelerate falling asleep and extend the duration of sleep. The length of the REM sleep phase is also increased. It is important because during this phase our mind rests most efficiently and the process of memory consolidation takes place. Jujubosides, in particular, are responsible for this effect as they support the activity of GABA – a neurotransmitter that allows you to calm down and prepare for the night’s rest.

Supports the nervous system: Scientists have confirmed that the biologically active compounds present in jujube fruit protect the nervous system cells. They prevent the toxicity of excessive glutamate, which can cause neuronal damage. Research results also indicate that the extract of this plant stimulates neurogenesis – a process leading to the growth and development of new nerve cells. It has also been shown to promote the branching of dendrites – projections that neurons use to receive signals from other nerve cells. In this way, the jujube helps to improve cognitive functions such as memory and the ability to learn.

Improves health condition: Numerous scientific results have confirmed that jujube fruits help in maintaining good health. They support functions of the immune system and help to regulate them. They inhibit the growth of certain pathogenic microbes, and help the body to fight infections. They also prevent inflammation. Moreover, jujube helps to maintain a healthy cholesterol level. It also prevents the formation of the so-called foam cells that are involved in the formation of fat deposits in the walls of blood vessels. Thus, it supports the prevention of atherosclerosis. It also has a positive effect on the condition of the skin, as it reduces the oxidative stress that occurs, for example, under the influence of ultraviolet radiation.
