Benefits of Ginseng
1. Restore Energy:
Ginseng may help stimulate physical and mental activity in people who feel weak and tired. One study revealed that ginseng showed good results in helping patients with fatigue. However, the energy-boosting effects of ginseng were only seen in people currently who are tired and have a hectic schedule. Ginseng did not show statistically significant improvements in people with good health.*
2. Anti-inflammatory effects:
Ginsenosides(major active pharmacological components of ginseng) may have anti-inflammatory effects, according to experimental results in the Journal of Translational Medicine. Ginseng is often used to reduce inflammation. The researchers suggest that ginsenosides may be responsible for targeting pathways in the immune system that could reduce inflammation.*
3. Treatment of erectile dysfunction:
Men may take ginseng to treat erectile dysfunction. A 2002 Korean study revealed that 60 percent of men who took ginseng noticed an improvement in their symptoms. Research published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology also claimed to provide "evidence for the effectiveness of red ginseng in the treatment of erectile dysfunction."*
4. Flu prevention:
Research on the effects of ginseng on mice suggests a possible link between ginseng and the treatment and prevention of influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Findings suggested that red ginseng extract could improve the survival of human lung epithelial cells infected with the influenza virus.*
5. Lowering blood sugar:
Several studies claim that ginseng may help lower blood sugar and help treat diabetes. Ginsenosides(major active pharmacological components of ginseng) may affect insulin production in the pancreas and improve insulin resistance using other mechanisms.*
