You’ve most likely heard of ginseng and that it offers health benefits, but have you ever tried it for yourself? While it has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine, it is only fairly recently that people in the West have given this herb much consideration.

Well keep reading because I’m going to share with you some of the amazing health benefits ginseng offers. By the end of the article you’ll be asking, “Where can I buy some?”

  1. It’s Chockful of Powerful Antioxidants

Ginseng has long been prized for its antioxidant benefits. In test-tube studies, ginseng compounds were found to increase antioxidant capacity in cells while also inhibiting inflammation. This is big because recent data points to the conclusion that most modern diseases, including aging, are caused by inflammation.

  1. May Boost Brain Function

According to some studies, ginseng may help improve brain functions like mood, behavior and memory. The herb contains powerful compounds like ginsenosides and compound K, which scientists believe may protect the brain against damage caused by free radicals.

It is also believed that ginseng may assist the uptake of blood sugar by cells, and this can help enhance a person’s mental performance so they can avoid mental fatigue. As an example, one study found that taking 400 mg of Panax ginseng daily for eight days improved the participants level of calmness and math skills.

While more studies are necessary, so far the herb has shown benefits to people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, helping them to focus, improve their mood and help with memory retrieval.

  1. May Protect Against Cancer

Studies have found that ginseng may help your risk of developing certain cancers. I mentioned the powerful compounds in ginseng called ginsenosides that have been shown to reduce inflammation and provide antioxidant protection.

Studies have shown that ginsenosides can benefit the natural cell cycle by preventing abnormal cell production and growth. Some studies have found that people taking ginseng regularly had as much as a 16% lower risk of developing cancer.

Some studies have also suggested that ginseng may help improve the health of people undergoing chemotherapy, reducing the undesirable side effects and at the same time enhancing the effect of some treatment drugs.

  1. May Increase Energy Levels

Ginseng has been shown to increase energy levels and fight fatigue. This is most likely thanks to the compounds like polysaccharides and oligopeptides that lower oxidative stress and increase energy production within the cells.

In one study, 90 people suffering from chronic fatigue were either given Panax ginseng or a placebo. Those given the ginseng experienced less physical and mental fatigue than those taking the placebo.

  1. May Help Manage Blood Sugar

Studies have shown ginseng’s ability to help people control their blood sugar levels. This is thanks in part to the herb’s ability to improve pancreatic cell function, boost insulin production and enhance the uptake of blood sugar into the tissues.

  1. Helps Erectile Dysfunction

Research has shown that ginseng may be a potent natural alternative treatment for those suffering from erectile dysfunction.  Those powerful compounds in the herb I have mentioned protect against oxidative stress, which can help protect the blood vessel and tissues in the penis, helping to restore natural function. You could say ginseng puts the FUN back in function!
