Chinese ginseng, also known as Panax, has been shown in clinical studies to help support optimum psychological function and promote optimum immune function
Extensive clinical studies over the past 20 years show that ginseng has two main adaptogenic effects – it helps enhance the body’s non-specific response to external stress and helps support optimum physical and mental performance.†
Ginseng has also been used to support healthy glucose levels already within normal range and relieve occasional nervousness.† Ginseng has also been shown to help support a healthy immune system
In one double-blind clinical study, a group of nurses were examined and those taking Chinese ginseng were found to feel more alert, yet more tranquil and were able to perform better than those not taking the ginseng.
Eleuthero has over 2000 years of traditional use in China for supporting energy and immune health.10 Eleuthero is not a ginseng even though it is often colloquially referred to as ginseng or Siberian ginseng because of its strong ginseng like properties and effects. It belongs, however, to a different genus in the plant family called “Araliaceae”.
Despite the confusion over its name, eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) is an extraordinary herb that can help support your ability to adapt to physical and emotional stress as well as increase energy, reduce fatigue, and enhance exercise performance.
The stresses of everyday life may place a heavy burden on the adrenal glands, which can contribute to flagging energy levels, effect the regulation of blood sugar and strain the immune system. As an adaptogen, eleuthero helps us adapt to stress. Eleuthero does this by providing fuel to the adrenal glands, allowing them to function optimally when challenged by stress.
