There are many Ginseng varieties world-wide, but Panax (“all heal”), is the most well-known for its vivifying effects in tonifying the entire body. As the signature of doctrine suggests, this “king of herbs” is beneficial for the entire human system from head to toe, resembling the figure of a man’s body. Traditionally used in Chinese herbal practice, it has been said that Li Ching-Yuen, the World’s longest living man according to the 1933 Guinness Book of Records, had lived up to 252 years old while consuming copious amounts of natural botanicals, one of which is Ginseng! With powerful immune-stimulating properties, this root work mainly by improving cell-mediated immunity (T cells and NK cells) as well as through mechanism involving apoptosis, oxidative stress, and angiogenesis. Asian Ginseng is a true adaptogen, enabling the body to adjust to mental and physical stressors in the environment very efficiently, including from trauma, stress, fatigue, and brings the organs and glands of the body to homeostasis (normalcy). Continual consumption of this amazing tonic will also bring you a stimulant-like effect, giving a quick boost of energy; yet, unlike caffeine, its long-term effects are to activate and restore the central nervous system – not deplete it, as coffee often does!

Studies have further shown this herb effective in cases of chronic fatigue syndrome and even tumor-growth, due to its potent antioxidants. Evidence also demonstrates Ginseng being useful for enhancing neurocognitive functions and for memory-related disorders such as Parkinson’s – increasing the natural dopamine production of the human brain – especially when combined with Ginkgo Biloba (also in this formula)! It can provide an anti-depressant effect and help modulate the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. Acting as a natural aphrodisiac, Ginseng supports and nourishes the reproductive system and has been known as a male and female tonic to naturally balance hormone production and improve blood flow to the sexual organs. It may help post-menopausal women by increasing female estrogen (estradiol) if the body needs it, and can guard against breast cancer, endometriosis, and hormone-driven issues. For men, it supports the prostate, increases serum testosterone and sperm count for men as they require it too, acting like a natural Viagra.

It protects against alcohol-induced gastric ulcers, inhibits growth of liver cancer cells, and aids with the manufacturing of protein from amino acids. Ginseng’s anti-aging effects are thought to come from its ability to increase the body’s synthesis of DNA, RNA, protein, and gonadotropins – all of which extend the cell life. It contains insulin-like effects for blood sugar removal, supports the adrenals, stimulates the appetite, aids with cocaine withdrawal, normalizes blood pressure, reduces cholesterol levels, protects against harmful radiation, helps eliminate feverish and inflammatory illnesses, good for blood diseases, promotes lung function, normalizes digestive imbalances, and helpful against viruses, heavy metals, and pollution. Its ginsenosides upregulate the conversion rate of the amino acid arginine into nitric oxide, giving a natural athletic boost in muscle mass and performance enhancement. A little goes a long way, and the longer you take it….the more obvious the results!
