Product Description

For more than 2,000 years, the roots of Panax plants have been valued in Chinese herbalism for their invigorating, adaptogenic, and tonic properties. As a result of its long history of use, Panax Ginseng has been studied extensively by modern scientists and it has been found to possess hundreds of compounds, including ginsenosides, phenolics, and saccharides that contribute to its biological activity.

Cortisol is a stress hormone produced by the adrenal glands. Overproduction of this hormone can lead to many problems including weight gain, muscle loss, nervous eating, anxiety, and disrupted sleep (waking up in the middle of the night). Herbs that naturally combat stress hormone production are known as adaptogens. Adaptogens are natural substances that improve the response to physical, emotional and/or mental stress without inducing any other changes in unstressed individuals. Panax Ginseng can support lowering cortisol levels and balancing the adrenal system.

Research indicates ginseng can improve cognitive performance during prolonged periods of mental activity. (1) It can also support support blood sugar control in Type 2 Diabetes.(2). Cortisol levels rising in the middle of the night can disrupt sleep. Supplements that help to lower cortisol levels can support uninterrupted sleep.

1. Panax ginseng may improve cognitive performance during prolonged periods of mental activity, according to a 2005 study from the Journal of Psychopharmacology. In a clinical trial involving 30 healthy young adults, researchers found that those given Panax ginseng were less likely to experience mental fatigue while taking a test (compared to those given a placebo).

2, A small 2008 study from Nutrition, Metabolism, and Cardiovascular Diseases showed that Panax ginseng may aid in diabetes management. The study involved 19 people with well-controlled type 2 diabetes. Compared to those given a placebo for 12 weeks, study members who took Panax ginseng supplements for the same time period experienced greater improvements in blood sugar control.
