Traditional herbal uses and medicinal properties:
Siberian ginseng is not actually ginseng but it is so called because it works in such a similar way. It is an adaptogen, and it encourages the adrenal glands to secrete STRESS FIGHTING HORMONES.
So it is known to strengthen the whole system and help fight colds, flu, fatigue, viral infections, nervous breakdown, depression, environmental toxins, to help the liver detox, and to alleviate menstrual problems and menopausal symptoms.
Siberian ginseng basically boosts the body's capacity to handle stress, ranging from heat exposure to extreme exertion. It helps the body become disease resistant and boosts energy levels.
Typical preparations and dosage:
0.5 to 2 grams up to 3 times a day.
or as recommended by a herbal practitioner
Possibly effective for:
- A viral infection called herpes simplex 2 (HSV-2). Taking a specific Siberian ginseng extract, standardized to contain a specific ginseng ingredient called eleutheroside 0.3% (Elagen), seems to reduce the number, severity, and duration of herpes simplex type 2 infections.
- Relieving symptoms of the common cold, when used in combination with an herb called andrographis. Some clinical research shows that taking a specific combination product containing Siberian ginseng plus andrographis (Kan Jang, Swedish Herbal Institute) significantly improves symptoms of the common cold when started within 72 hours of symptom onset. Some symptoms can improve after 2 days of treatment. It generally takes 4-5 days of treatment for the maximum benefit. Some research suggests this combination of Siberian ginseng and andrographis relieves cold symptoms in children better than echinacea.
Insufficient evidence to rate effectiveness for:
- Memory. There is limited evidence that suggests Siberian ginseng might improve memory and feelings of well-being in middle-aged people.
- Chronic fatigue syndrome. Taking Siberian ginseng does not seem to reduce symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome.
- Quality of life. Some research shows that Siberian ginseng significantly improves sociability and sense of well-being in people over 65 years of age after 4 weeks of treatment. But the effects seem to disappear after 8 weeks.
- Improving athletic performance.
- Heart disease.
- Kidney problems.
- Alzheimer's disease.
- Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
- High cholesterol.
- Chemotherapy side effects.
- Low oxygen levels.
- Motion sickness.
- Other conditions.
Siberian ginseng has also been known to treat chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, it is well known to boost mental alertness and improve concentration (has been used in early stages of Alzheimer's). It boosts female fertility, increases testosterone levels in men and is said to increase sperm count, and relieve male impotence and erectile dysfunction. Siberian ginseng is more useful for maintaining good health rather than treating ill health. Siberian Ginseng is reputed to have a normalising effect, bringing the body back into balance. Siberian ginseng may help to protect the body from the debilitating effects of radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery. Siberian ginseng contains remarkable compounds that favorably affect the adrenal glands, the small glands that rest atop the kidneys and secrete stress-fighting hormones. Siberian ginseng can increase a person's resistance to physical stresses. Siberian ginseng is popular for invigorating and fortifying the body. By supporting healthy uterine function, Siberian ginseng may be useful in preventing female infertility. Siberian ginseng may increase mental alertness, particularly in the early stages of this progressive disorder.
