Siberian Ginseng, also known as eleuthero, is believed to be a slower acting and a more gentle Ginseng than its Korean relative. Ginseng is an adaptogen, which means it increases the resistance and the body’s ability to adapt to stress and changing situations, helping to build up general vitality. Because of these properties it is used to help boost the immune system and increase resistance to infection. Due to the adaptogenic properties, Ginseng can be used both as a sedative to help aid sleep and relaxation, and also a stimulant. Ginseng is found in many energy drinks as it is thought to be a natural mental stimulant and may help boost cognitive performance (e.g. before exams, or during times of mental strain).
Siberian ginseng, has a history of traditional use dating back more than 2,000 years. More recently, Siberian Ginseng has been the focus of several scientific studies designed to elucidate the precise action of this herb on the body.
Evidence suggests it can do much to enhance our vitality and protect us from the effects of stress. The chief organs in the body responsible for dealing with stress are the adrenal glands, which secrete a variety of hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol, which have important roles to play in the body's response to stress. However, the adrenal glands have only a certain capacity to respond to stress, and prolonged demands can cause them to weaken. Common symptoms of weakened adrenal glands include fatigue (which is often worse just after the stress of physical exertion), dizziness on standing, anxiety and/or depression. Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus) has been shown to help protect the adrenal glands, increasing their capacity to withstand prolonged stress.
Another of Siberian Ginseng's specific effects is that it appears 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.
Ginseng contains high levels of antioxidants. Antioxidants help to fight free radicals. Free radicals have been linked to contributing towards certain diseases such as cancers. Antioxidants can also help with boosting our immune system, which is our body’s first line of defence when it comes to fighting illness.
