What is Ginseng?
Ginseng refers to eleven different varieties of a short, slow-growing plant with thick, forked-shaped roots, a relatively long stalk, and bright green leaves. The two main types of ginseng used in supplements are Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng) and American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius).
Ginseng has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. It has been attributed to a huge range of benefits, which are now starting to be backed up by science through studies involving individuals supplementing their diet with the root.
Ginseng's antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect is derived from its compounds working to reduce swelling and increase the antioxidant capacity of cells in the body, with researchers finding that ginseng may have adaptogenic properties through increasing antioxidant enzyme activities.
The possible positive effects ginseng has on reducing the risk of cancer comes from its prevention of abnormal cell production in tumor and cancerous growths. It may also be due to the enhancement of the effect some chemotherapy drugs have on patients that are already diagnosed with the disease, as well as reducing the side effect of many treatments by helping the immune system fight off symptoms of the disease.
Researchers found that ginseng assisted the uptake of blood sugar by cells, which may enhance the performance and reduce mental fatigue observed with people who take the supplement. Various animal studies have linked some components in ginseng with lower oxidative stress and higher energy production in cells, which could help fight fatigue and improve your mood throughout the day.
Both American and Asian ginseng has also been seen to improve pancreatic cell function, boosting the cells that produce insulin in the body as well as improve the absorption of blood sugar. Compounds found in Ginseng root may also aid blood vessels and tissues in the penis through the production of nitric oxide, a compound that improves muscle relaxation and increases blood circulation in the penis, helping to restore normal sexual function for men suffering from erectile dysfunction.
