SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN FUNCTIONS OF GINSENG
Korean Red Ginseng is so internationally famous for its healthy properties that the scientific name for its species was designated as Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer (panax being the Latin term for "a cure-all"). While ginseng cannot cure all ills, it does have a variety of healthy effects, which modern scientific research has confirmed. But not all ginsengs are the same. While there are many species and types of ginseng, only Korean ginseng, which has been grown for 6 years (to its full-maturity), which has been scientifically proven and affirmed, by the Korean FDA, as a functional food, which supports these healthy functions:
Boost energy & bodily stamina
Support fatigue resistance
Boost the immune system
Enhance Blood Circulation
Support Memory Functions
While Korean ginseng is classified as a dietary supplement, not a drug (and has no doping effects), it is no wonder that Korean ginseng has consistently held the #1 spot for most recommended traditional herbal medicine in the herbalist communities. The 10th International Symposium on Ginseng was held in 2010 and attended by approximately 1,500 scholars and researchers from 15 countries such as the United States, Europe and Asia. More than 300 papers were submitted with their findings supporting ginseng's efficacy.
KOREAN RED GINSENG, THE ORIGINAL SUPER FOOD
While modern scientific has confirmed the above claims, such that they have received approval from the Korean-FDA, there are seven major benefits of ginseng as described in traditional Eastern medical records. Since ancient times, long before clinical trials, many Korean and Chinese medical documents referred to these records and prescribed Korean ginseng to support bodily functions associated with certain conditions. In China, the historically referenced functions of ginseng are classified as, "The Seven Major Benefits of Ginseng." These are outlined below:
The Six Major Benefits of Ginseng
Promotes Healthy Blood Circulation: Healthy blood circulation is integral to our overall health and affects a wide populace—about 40 percent of the adult U.S. population struggle with circulation-related problems. Actions in our daily lives, such as sitting too much, can play a significant role in poor blood flow. Studies suggest that Korean Red Ginseng may improve blood circulation in the human body.
Boosts Stamina: Ginseng has been long studied as a natural alternative to healthy, caffeine-free energy. While caffeine is the most popular mental energy ingredient on the market, many consumers experience unwanted side effects—which is why nearly 85% of caffeine users would try a non-caffeine product if it offered the same energy benefits. Without a buzz or jittery feeling, Korean Red Ginseng has been shown to help relieve stress by boosting both mental vitality and physical energy, while providing for bodily calm.
Strengthens Immunity: One out of three global consumers reported they were more concerned about immune health than before the pandemic started. Our immune system is our first line of defense in fighting disease, and we rely on it every day to keep us healthy. Our immune system isn't invincible—it's important that we give ourselves extra support when needed. Celebrated for centuries for its unique roperties, Korean Red Ginseng has been shown to help support a healthy immune system.
Bolsters Cognitive Function: A recent report found that the pandemic has taken a toll on society’s collective mental well-being, leading consumers to search for ways to sleep better, manage their stress, and concentrate amid all the distractions. As you age, cognitive function declines unless you take a proactive approach, so it’s important to take actionable steps to support mental well-being. Korean Red Ginseng is a natural botanical that has been shown to help reduce the risk of cognitive decline.
Supports Skin Health: Human skin is the body’s first line of defense and often reflects the health and diet of a person. Topical products can only go so far to promote healthy skin–it’s essential to nourish the skin from the inside out too. Survey data shows that 82% of consumers believe the best means of meeting their beauty objectives involves adopting an “inside-out” approach using supplements. Korean Red Ginseng may reduce wrinkles and signs of aging, promote elasticity and collagen production, and reduce puffiness and inflammation.
Reduces Inflammation: Researchers are increasingly recognizing that chronic inflammation is an underlying cause of many health problems. If inflammation is left untreated, your body’s inflammatory response can eventually start damaging healthy cells, tissues, and organs. The ginsenosides found in Korean Red Ginseng work to target pathways in the immune system, which may reduce inflammation.
WHAT MAKES KOREAN RED GINSENG SO POWERFUL?
Korean Red Ginseng is rich in healthy plant saponins, specifically called ginsenosides, which evolved to help the plant survive in harsh environments. Ginseng saponins have been shown clinically to have a powerful adaptogenic effect, helping human bodies achieve homeostasis by bringing them back into balance and helping to fight stress on a cellular level. Although ginseng is not drug, dozens of research papers indicate that Korean Red Ginseng and the healthy components found in Korean Red Ginseng help the body resist harmful viruses. This supports the claim that Korean ginseng helps boost the immune system and illustrates why it has been historically used as a traditional medicine for 2,000 years.
In fact, Korean Red Ginseng is the most famous medicinal herb in the Eastern tradition and has been used safely throughout Asia and world for centuries. Western explorers in Asia brought the plant back to Europe and remarked how it "extended life and vitality."
Ginseng came to be used as clean, plant-based nutrition providing healthy-energy to hard workers, atheletes, and those wishing to support a healthy lifestyle with nature's original super food. Containing more than 30 varieties of healthy ginseng saponins and ginsenosides, Korean Red Ginseng ginseng is widely considered to be the world's most powerful form of ginseng, yet is incredibly difficult to grow, which is why it sells at a higher price.
THE RIGHT DOSAGE FOR YOU
When beginning a ginseng regime, you may wish to begin with a half serving and build-up to full servings as your body builds tolerance. Ginseng is an "adaptogenic herb," which means it supports the adrenals and helps the body to achieve homeostasis by supporting the body's efficiency at fighting cellular stress. Everybody is different and has different needs. Listen to your body. Although side-effects are rare and uncommon, reduce dosage or stop usage if you are unsure.
