Nutrient - Ginseng, Korean

(Panax ginseng)

By Nutri People

Panax means panacea in Greek. A member of the ivy family, this ginseng has been used in China for 4000 years. The main active parts in the root are called ‘ginsenosides’. Panax ginseng is known to support the adrenal glands, especially when under challenge, and to enhance libido, mood, energy, stamina and mental performance. It supports natural immunity, helps regulate blood sugar levels and is a natural source of phyto-oestrogens (plant oestrogens), which help regulate hormone levels. Panax ginseng supports a healthy heart and blood vessels by helping balance blood pressure, blood flow and cholesterol levels - especially ‘bad’ LDL in relation to ‘good’ HDL.
