American Ginseng and its Health Benefits

American Ginseng is one of the most common of herbal supplements in the United States. Ginseng is a tan root, that needs at least six years of aging before used for medicinal purposes. The massive popularity of ginseng has led to over harvesting, causing it to be endangered in many states and expensive to purchase.

What does it do?

Considered a adaptogen, ginseng helps the body fight against stress, both physical and mental. A cool and calming tonic, it is often regarded as a stress medicine and antioxidant. In addition it helps with anti-aging and and anti-fatigue.

According to research published in the Journal of Herbs, Spices & Medicinal Plants: “[American] Ginseng is traditionally reputed to regularize bodily functions and relieve many ailments resulting from physiological stress. Beneficial effects are thought to be due to a non-specific influence on production and use of regulatory hormones.”

American ginseng is also known to contain chemicals called ginsenosides and polysaccharides. Ginsenosides affect insulin levels which help with blood sugar and diabetes. Polysaccharides affect the immune system, which help the body fight off disease and infections. American ginseng has been linked to specifically helping those with colds and flu.

How can it help?
