American Ginseng 5% Ginsenoside - 100 Caps
  • 500 mg
  • Adaptogenic Herb*
  • American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) has been used by traditional herbalists for centuries. Recent scientific data confirm the presence of bioactive compounds in American Ginseng, known as Ginsenosides, which confer this herb's adaptogenic properties.*
  • American Ginseng is similar to its Asian cousin, Korean Ginseng. Both varieties are considered true Panax Ginseng types. It was introduced to early American settlers by Native Americans and soon became a major export commodity to the Far East.  NOW American Ginseng is derived from 4 to 5 year-old high quality cultivated Wisconsin ginseng roots and are especially high in ginsenosides (5% minimum), the active measurable components in ginseng.

NOW American Ginseng is an adaptogen, a substance that reduces the effects of any kind of stress, physical or mental.  It is commonly used as a general health tonic to enhance a person’s mental and physical performance, and can treat chronic fatigue syndrome.

American ginseng has several compounds that have a strong affect on the kidneys and adrenalin glands. It is the adrenalin glands that secrete hormones to ward off emotional and physical stress, and it is believed that the impact of ginseng on glands can help the body fight stress. Packed with antioxidant properties, ginseng is good for building up the immunity in the body.

Studies on American Ginseng have found that the intake of ginseng may improve blood sugar control by creating sugar-lowering effects in fasting and after-meal blood sugar levels. The effect was noticed even in average blood sugar levels over a three-month period. This benefit can be helpful against obesity and helpful with weight control.
