Siberian Ginseng has been traditionally used to prevent colds and flu and increase energy, longevity, and vitality. It is used in Russia as an "adaptogen." An adaptogen is a substance that is supposed to help the body better cope with either mental or physical stress.
Siberian Ginseng: Helps the body handle metabolic stress, regulates cellular health, and sustains energy.
Another critical action of an adaptogen is "immunomodulation" – a process by which an immune response is altered to the desired level. This is partly achieved by recharging exhausted adrenal glands - when these glands become overtaxed, leading to different systems in the body breaking down.
Siberian ginseng consists of a group of glycosides known as eleutherosides. The evidence is mounting that Siberian Ginseng enhances and supports immune system response, making it a possible natural alternative in the long-term management of various immune system diseases. German research has shown that it increases lymphocytes – essential components of the immune system which act as the body's primary defense against viral infections. They found that Siberian Ginseng significantly increases the activity and number of CD4 cells, a subset of T-lymphocyte cells, whose proper action is crucial to the ability of the immune system to function normally.
Siberian Ginseng is a love attracting herb that also is said to assist with sexual potency. The belief is to carry Siberian Ginseng to attract love and keep it near the bed for increasing the sexual potency.
