What is Siberian Ginseng and more importantly, why should you be taking it?
Siberian Ginseng (also known as “Eleutrococcus Senticosus”) is a variant of the more common Koren Ginseng and has been used for over 2000 in traditional medicines in places such as Russia, China, Korea, and Japan. The Traditional benefits of Siberian Ginseng are thought to be the improvement of the body’s defences against physical and mental stress.
More recently, several scientific studies have endeavored to reveal the precise action of Siberian Ginseng on the body. Evidence from these recent studies also suggests that Siberian Ginseng can enhance our vitality and protect us from the effects of daily stresses.
The adrenal glands are the chief organs in the body that deal with stress and they secrete a variety of hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol and they play important roles in the body's response to stress. Like any organ, the Adrenal Glands have their maximum output and their ability to deal with stress may weaken under prolonged demand. Common symptoms of weakened adrenal glands include fatigue, dizziness, anxiety and/or depression. The good news is that Siberian Ginseng is an adaptogen and has been shown to help protect the adrenal glands, which in turn increases their capacity to withstand prolonged periods of stress.
Another benefit of Siberian Ginseng Supplementation is the ability to enhance the immune system. In a large scale study of 1,000 Siberian factory workers who took Siberian ginseng for just 30 days, the number of lost days due to absenteeism was reduced by 40%. In addition, general reported illness rates for the same period were cut by half.
