Ginseng Root

Ginseng is a slow growing herb, which consists of a light colored root, a single stalk and long oval green leaves. Ginseng contains complex carbohydrates called saponins or ginsengsines. It possesses anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-cancer elements. Ginseng’s original name was “man root” since the ginseng root resembles the shape of a human body. Ancient Chinese doctrines state that a plant that resembles a human body part will have a healing effect on that body part. Therefore it is believed ginseng is able to restore harmony to the entire body.

For years, the Chinese have used ginseng as an energy tonic. Today, the western world is exploring its benefits in treating stress and levels of mental lucidity. Asian research has found that ginseng helps mental improvement, eliminates anemia, and helps prevent diabetes, neurosis, coughs, tuberculosis and asthma. It was also found to strengthen the gastrointestinal system and help with liver regeneration. It is even able to reduce the effects of alcohol and decrease hangovers. People taking regular ginseng were found to be able to handle higher levels of stress on both an emotional and physical level. If you are interested in trying ginseng, the best supplements to buy are those which have not been subjected to excessive processing, thereby rendering them ineffective. Also, make sure you purchase authentic ginseng products since wide variations in quality exist today. It was found 15% of ginseng  products contained no ginseng when tested.

Your best guarantee of quality would be to purchase the whole root. In India almost all leading Pharmaceutical Companies are blending Ginseng in their Food Supplements e.g. Revital by Ranbaxy. My experience says that Ginseng preparations in Capsule form by the manufacturers are marked with expiry date which is more that the preservation time. The author has tested the formulation in Capsule Form, which at normal room temperature and in rainy season (humid conditions), is spoiled by worms as worms infest any root of a plant. It is my opinion that drinks made from Ginseng Raw Root Extracts can yield the results claimed by the manufacturers.

In India, as per literature about Ginseng sent to me by by Biological E .Limited in 1980 , Ginseng was brought to India by them and the company had claimed that Indira Gandhi, the late Prime Minister of India and a world leader regularly used the Ginseng Extracts. Ginseng builds strong stamina and that is why the Chinese and Koreans take away Olympic Medals – as per literature of the above company supplied to me in 1980. It is said that in ancient times the Kings used the extract of Ginseng and its was sold @ its weight in grams = weight of gold in grams. But now due to commercial production now it is available everywhere. Natural Form of any herbal supplement is the best.

Although it is best known and successful at boosting the immune system, improving mental function, and enhancing the ability to deal with stress, there are still studies being done to determine what other areas ginseng can be beneficial. There are different kinds of ginseng that cure certain medical problems. Some of the ginsengs have anti-cancer effects in the body. The most common kinds are Chinese ginseng, Korean ginseng, and many more. Each of these has individual features.

Korean Ginseng:
Korean Ginseng, or Panax Ginseng, is a brown, gnarled root about the size of a little finger that resembles the shape of the human body. It is sometimes referred to as a “man root” or “root of man”. Korean Ginseng grows primarily in South Korea, China and Japan. It has been used for over 5000 years and is considered the strongest form of ginseng. Korean Ginseng is used in China as a preventative tonic to stimulate the entire body to overcome stress, fatigue and weakness.  It helps the body to adapt to stress and to regenerate and rebuild the sexual centers.

Nutritional Role of Korean Ginseng

Korean Ginseng contains thirteen different ginsenosides. Panaxans help to lower blood sugar, polysaccharides work to enhance the immune system and its antioxidant properties are immune-stimulating to protect the body from illness, disease and stress. Korean Ginseng helps to stimulate production of immune cells called “killer T-cells” that destroy viruses and bacteria. It balances the release of stress hormones by supporting the organs that produce them (the hypothalamus, the pituitary, and adrenal glands). Korean Ginseng helps produce endorphins to make people feel good. Its other benefits work to increase testosterone and sperm count.

Traditional Uses of Korean Ginseng

People who are pregnant or taking MAO inhibitor drugs should not use this herb. Korean Ginseng is very stimulating so it should be taken early in the day. High dosages could make some jittery. Check with your doctor before taking if you have high blood pressure. In rare cases, postmenopausal women may experience vaginal bleeding due to its mildly estrogenic effect.
