The herb that helps increase physical and mental endurance.
For over 2000 years, Ginseng has been used in the Far East as a tonic with revitalizing properties and to help boost energy. Ginseng is especially beneficial during times of stress and fatigue because it preserves glycogen, the glucose that is stored in the liver and muscle cells, by increasing the use of fatty acid as a source of energy. It has been shown that the active compound, Ginsenosides, helps the body to respond to stress and is also noted for its endurance enhancing effects.
Our Panax Ginseng 100mg Standardized Herbal Extract Capsule is standardized to 10% Ginsenosides.
The name "Ginseng" evolved from the Chinese name "man root". Since the 1950's an increasing amount of worldwide research was done that revealed ginseng's healing properties.
The most widely used and extensively studied species, the "Panax", contains certain beneficial chemicals known as ginsenosides that have been shown to improve human mental and physical performance and to combat fatigue.
Note : A well structured Italian study examined the psychomotor skills of healthy university students. It compared students using ginseng and those using an inert substance. The students taking ginseng showed significant improvement over their initial baseline scores in areas such as arithmetic, deductive logic, and sensory-motor function.
