Time-Proven Efficacy of Ginseng

For thousands of years, ginseng (Panax ginseng) has been used as a tonic for restoring the body's natural balance of Qi (i.e. body energetics).  This includes increasing mental efficiency and stimulating metabolic function.  Modern western science now accepts ginseng as an adaptogen which means that the herb increases the body's resistance to stresses such as trauma, fatigue and illness.  In short, it restores the body's natural balance.  Ginseng is now frequently used in traditional medicine of China, Korea, Japan and other countries for the treatment of many conditions including psychiatric and neurological diseases and in particular, diabetes mellitus.

Main Active Component of Ginseng, Ginsenoside (ginseng saponin)

Ginseng contains several unique active ingredients not found in any other plant.  The most important factors with medicinal properties are called ginsenosides, a class of steroid-like compounds called triterpene saponins, which affect many bodily pathways.  Chemically, ginsenosides are classified into seven different groups, all of which contain an "R" in their name.  Each ginsenoside has its own special property and effect.

The Yin & Yang of Ginseng

According to traditional Oriental medicine theory, the interplay of two key ginsenosides creates the harmonic balance between Yin (passivity, darkness, slowness) and Yang (activity, light, quickness). Diol-type saponin has the ability to calm the body at times of stress and agitation. Triol-type saponin, on the other hand, increases performance, accelerates reaction time and has a positive effect in physical exhaustion and illness. The key active components of ginseng are ginsenosides and glycosides, which contain aglycone (either protopanaxadiol or protopanoxatriol). These components must be hydrolyzed by intestinal bacteria to be absorbed into the body. Orally administered ginsenosides are difficult to break down, thus the absorption rate of ginsenosides through the intestines is very low. Therefore, an individual can only expect maximum ginseng effectiveness when specific intestinal bacteria exist in the body, which enable the body to hydrolyze and absorb ginsenosides.

Individual Differences in Absorption of Ginseng

The ginsenoside-hydrolyzing ability of intestinal bacteria varies videly from person to person. These differences exist, in part, lased on a person's physical health and the amount and type of intestinal bacteria that exists in the intestines. To be effective, ginseng must be absorbed and in order for it to be absorbed, it must be hydrolyze by microorganisms.

Superior Results with Whole Root Ginseng

While ginsenosides play an extremely important role in the medicinal action of ginseng, other key components also work together synergistically with the ginsenosides to provide optimal clinical effectiveness.  It is best to use the entire ginseng root, not just ginseng extract or isolated factors of ginseng.  Using the entire ginseng root provides the entire spectrum of natural source nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, trace elements and alkaloids that possess spectacular benefits for the human body, but only when they are well absorbed.
