Panax ginseng has a long history of use going back over 5,000 years. It is one of the most studied herbs in the world and is highly regarded in Chinese herbal medicine where it has gained an almost magical reputation for being able to promote health, vigour and prolonging life.
The term Panax comes from the Greek word Panacea meaning ‘all healing’ and stems from Greek mythology in which Panacea is the goddess of healing.
Panax ginseng acts as a stimulant in the body, promotes endurance, relaxes the nervous system, improves mental awareness, proper hormonal functions, nerve growth and increases resistance to disease.
In the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, Dr. C. Lui summarised that Panax Ginseng active ingredients ( termed ‘ginsenosides’) have been shown to act upon the central nervous system, cardiovascular system and endocrine secretion, support immune function and have positive effects on slowing aging and relieving stress.
