Ginseng General Information
There are three herbs commonly called Ginseng: Chinese, Asian, Korean Ginseng (Panax Ginseng), American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius), and Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus); however, the latter is not Ginseng at all, but Russian scientists believe it functions like Ginseng, and so have promoted it as such. Siberian Ginseng is also less expensive so many use it instead of Panax Ginseng. There are two ways Ginseng is processed. Dried and unprocessed root is called "White Ginseng," while the steam and heat dried root is called "Red Ginseng." Traditional Chinese herbalists believe each form has its own particular benefits.

Ginseng Uses & Scientific Evidence For
The general public regard Ginseng to be a stimulant, but those who have used it seriously know that is not accurate. A Russian scientist studied the herb and found it to be an adaptogen. An adaptogen is a hypothetical treatment or prescription for health. A healthy lifestyle is the one indisputable example of an adaptogen. Eating right, exercising, and doing all things in moderation will help the body adapt to stresses such as heat, cold, exertion, trauma, sleep deprivation, toxic exposure, radiation, infection, or psychological stress. There are no side effects with an adaptogen. It must be able to treat a variety of illnesses and help an organism return to its balanced state no matter what the cause. Ginseng is seen as producing the same benefits. Chinese herbalists do not entirely agree as they say it works as other herbs do in that it is helpful for those who need its particular effects, but is neutral, and sometimes harmful for others.

In addition to Ginseng’s ability to help the body adapt to stress, studies have confirmed it’s effectiveness in boosting the immune system, helping control diabetes, stimulating the mind, and improving physical performance (for athletes). This herb is also said to help prevent cancer, fight chemical dependency and improve sexual performance; however, there is no evidence to support those claims.

Ginseng Dosage Information
The standard dosage of Panax Ginseng is 1 to 2 g of raw herb, or 200 mg per day of an extract standardized to contain 4 to 7% ginsenosides. For Eleutherococcus, take 2 to 3 g whole herb or 300 to 400 mg of extract per day. In most cases, a 2 to 3 week period of using Ginseng is recommended, with a 1 to 2 week “rest” period. Panax Ginseng is very expensive so many products contain very little of the herb, but instead is combined with other herbs and even caffeine in some cases. It is important to read product label directions.

Ginseng Safety & Interaction Information
Ginseng appears to be nontoxic and side effects are rare. Some reports suggest that exceeding the recommended doses causes increased blood pressure and heart rate, over-stimulation, and insomnia; however, it is not clear if the effects are from the combination of caffeine with Ginseng. There is some evidence that Ginseng interferes with drugs processed by an enzyme called "CYP 34A", MAO inhibitors, digitalis, and Coumadin (warfarin). If you are taking medications of any kind, it is best to consult with your physician before adding a Ginseng supplement to your regimen. Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known.
