Ginseng is made up of several hundred species of herbs, trees and shrubs that thrive in moderately tropical and temperate settings. It can be found in VigRX Plus. The western world’s interest in oriental culture has led to the use of many eastern herbal remedies, including ginseng. There are three main types of ginseng: American ginseng, Chinese (Panax, Korean, Asian) ginseng and Siberian ginseng.
Effects of Ginseng
Ginseng is generally used to help individuals deal with the mental and physical stresses of modern life. It works by alleviating stress and anxiety. Carbohydrates called saponins and ginsenosides receive the credit for ginseng’s effects on the human body.
Ginseng Side Effects
The most common side effects of ginseng include nervousness, trouble sleeping, and an excited feeling. These conditions may disappear after a few days when your body adjusts to Ginseng. Other Ginseng side effets include high blood pressure, diarrhea, anxiety, and skin rash.
Two species of ginseng that are known for their ability to cure are American ginseng and Chinese ginseng. American and Chinese ginsengs are similar chemically and visually. American ginseng is believed to have a higher concentration of ginsenosides than Asian ginseng; as a result, it may be stronger.
American ginseng was found in the 18th century when a priest discovered it growing in Canada. He had heard of this herbal remedy, and was actively looking for it. As a result, the demand for American ginseng grew both in the US and in other countries. Ginseng was later found in other states within the US. In recent years, the market for ginseng as increased dramatically due to the curative properties of the herb.
Panax Ginseng is also referred to as Chinese Ginseng, Korean Ginseng and Asian Ginseng. Like American ginseng, it is known for its ability to cure. It is believed that Panax ginseng was discovered some 5000 years ago in China. It was appreciated then for the same reasons that it is now: its ability to provide strength and youthfulness. During the 20th century, the trade and growth of Panax ginseng increased because of the high international demand.
Siberian ginseng is of the same family as the ginseng root. Naming this type of ginseng “Siberian” enabled the herb to be imported as a tea extract at time when there was an FDA ban on importing new and unproven drugs. This type of ginseng is different than Chinese ginseng. Its main function is to increase resistance to stress. Siberian ginseng is also referred to as an adaptogen, which means that it can increase the body’s ability to balance its own functions despite any ailment. Some people take Siberian ginseng to support the body’s energy while others do so to enhance memory and ward off colds. Siberian ginseng also contains substances that affect the adrenal glands, which secrete stress-fighting hormones. As a result, taking this herb is believed to increase the body’s capacity to handle physical stresses.
