Siberian ginseng extract, also known as the root of the root or the root of life, is a spiny shrub with a carrot-like root belonging to the Araliaceae plant. It is native to East Asian countries such as China, Japan and Russia.
It is sometimes called acanthopanax Siberian ginseng. Although the shape is similar, it cannot be confused with Chinese ginseng or American ginseng. They belong to completely different varieties.
Siberian ginseng grows in alpine weeds or coniferous shrubs. This herb has a strong adaptability to a variety of different types of soil and can survive in sunny or partially shaded areas, but not in a completely shady environment.
Westerners have only recently added this ginseng to natural medicines, but it is easy to confuse them with Chinese ginseng. These two herbs actually have different compound ingredients, but the effects are similar.
Siberian ginseng is an adaptation to the original, with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune tonic effects. Studies have shown that it may have the effect of alleviating hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis depletion symptoms, such as muscle soreness, adrenal failure, and dark Circles.
Further research by Russian and Korean scientists found that this herb also has many healing properties. Increased endurance, improved memory, enhanced immune function, improved cognitive and physiological performance are some of the health benefits known to Siberian ginseng. It has been successfully used to treat Angina pectoris, headache, insomnia, loss of appetite and chemotherapy-induced myelosuppression.
This herb is mainly used to treat immune system defects because it contains triterpenoid saponins (or adapted to the original), which can increase emotional, chemical and physiological stress resistance. American ginseng does not contain saponin, making Siberian ginseng a unique herbal formula. Addition, it also contains many essential nutrients such as sodium, magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, vitamin A, B3, B12, C and E.
Siberian ginseng has also become a popular remedy for the weakening of the immune system. 2 ounces of honey, 1 ounce of Siberian ginseng, and then 40 drops of wintergreen oil, then add a cup of boiling water to make a tonic to strengthen the immune System. In addition, Siberian ginseng nutritional supplements in the form of tea and capsules are also available on the market.
