What are the benefits of using Panax Ginseng?
The benefits of using Panax Ginseng are far and wide. Here is a list of potential benefits/uses from WebMD:
"Some people use Panax ginseng to help them cope with stress and as a general tonic for improving well-being. They sometimes call Panax ginseng an "adaptogen" when it's used in this way.
Panax ginseng is also used for depression, anxiety, general fatigue and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), multiple sclerosis, for boosting the immune system, and for fighting particular infections in a lung disease called cystic fibrosis. These infections are caused by a bacterium named Pseudomonas.
Some people use Panax ginseng to treat breast cancer and prevent ovarian cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, and skin cancer.
Other uses include treatment of anemia, chronic bronchitis, swine flu, prediabetes and diabetes, inflammation of the stomach lining (gastritis), fever, hangover, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), HIV/AIDS, fertility problems and sexual dysfunction in men, to increase sexual arousal in women, and asthma.
Panax ginseng is also used for bleeding disorders, loss of appetite, vomiting, intestinal problems, gallstones, bad breath, fibromyalgia, sleeping problems (insomnia), nerve pain, joint pain, dizziness, headache, hearing loss, convulsions, disorders of pregnancy and childbirth, hot flashes due to menopause, common cold and flu, heart failure, high blood pressure, quality of life, wrinkled skin, and to slow the aging process." - Source: WebMD
Korean red ginseng is a plant that grows in Asia. It is known by several different names including Asian ginseng, Chinese ginseng, or panax ginseng. Korean red ginseng should not be confused with Siberian ginseng or American ginseng, which are different plants.
The ginseng root is the part of the plant used as a natural remedy in supplement form. The plant must grow for at least five years before it can be used, which means that high quality ginseng commands a high price and consumers should look skeptically at panax ginseng supplements that are priced at bargain prices.
Panax Ginseng was discovered in the mountains of Manchuria, China, over 5000 years ago. Taking up to six years to mature, this unique root has a plant which grows from eight to fifteen inches in height, and must be grown in cool moist soil which is frequently watered.
When properly manufactured Panax Ginseng extract contains significant quantities of the major ginsenosides Rb1, Rg1, Rb2 which are responsible for the positive medical benefits documented in the hundreds of medical and scientific studies. American ginseng and Siberian ginseng, being different plants, do not contain the same ginsenosides at the same levels.
Beware! Not all Panax Ginseng is the Same!
While less expensive and less effective methods of panax ginseng supplement production can be used, LEAN Nutraceuticals sources only the finest quality panax ginseng available in Asia and then uses an expensive and efficient scientifically designed manufacturing process to produce a concentrated 4:1 extract. This attention to detail from source to bottle is why our panax ginseng might cost a little more than others but we think you’re worth it!
