American Ginseng


American Ginseng

American Ginseng has been traditionally used by the American Indians as a demulcent, general tonic, as a natural restorative for the weak and wounded and to help the mind. American Ginseng is now used as a natural preventative and restorative remedy, and is valued for its "adaptogenic" (tending to bring the body to normal) properties. Research suggests it may increase mental efficiency and physical performance, aid in adapting to high or low temperatures and stress.

Edgar Cayce preferred American Ginseng. He called American Ginseng "the essence of the flow of the vitality within the system itself. It is electrifying of the vital forces themselves." (404-4) The main active ingredients of Ginseng (American and Korean) are the more than 20 saponin triterpenoid glycosides called "ginsenosides". A major difference between American and Korean Ginseng is that the American Ginseng is rich in the Rb1 group of ginsenosides, which have a more sedative and metabolic effect on the central nervous system.

American Ginseng (Rb1 ginsenosides) also increases stamina, learning ability, and has been used for stress, fatigue characterized by insomnia, to enhance immune functions, poor appetite, nervousness and restlessness.

Ginseng has been found to protect the body & nervous system from stress, stimulate & increase metabolic function, increase physical & mental efficiency, lower blood pressure & glucose levels when they are high, and raise them (blood pressure & glucose levels) when they are low, increase gastrointestinal movement & tone, increase iron metabolism, and cause changes in nucleic acid (RNA) biosynthesis.

In geriatric use, Ginseng has been proven beneficial in restoring mental abilities. Ginseng also helps by directly affecting the adrenal-pituitary axis, the result of which is manifested by an increased resistance to the effects of stress. This herb also aids mental function by improving circulation. Animal studies have clearly demonstrated Ginseng's ability to help the learning process.

Suggested Usage: As a dietary supplement, take 1-2 mL (approximately 28-56 drops) 3 times a day in a small amount of water.
