American Ginseng or panax quinquefolius, is a slow-growing medicinal plant that produces a fleshy, white root that has been used by Native Americans for thousands of years and is imported by into Asia for use in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, American Ginseng is thought to cool and nourish the body’s Qi energy as well as improve physical strength, promote health and increase longevity.
While there is still much research that needs to be done, studies have shown many potential health benefits from consuming American Ginseng on a regular basis.
Some of these potential health benefits are:
- Increased energy and decreased fatigue due to lower oxidative stress levels and increased energy production in cells (1, 2).
- Nootropic and adaptogenic properties which means ginseng may improve focus and short term memory as well as help the body maintain balance while under stress (3, 4, 5).
- Improved immune response meaning ginseng may help the immune system respond to colds and flu (6, 7).
- Reduced inflammation associated with arthritis, muscle stiffness and diet (8, 9, 10).
- Lower blood sugar level for diabetics (11, 12).
The compounds responsible for these health benefits are known as ginsenosides and they are found in high concentrations within the ginseng root. Studies have found that American ginseng grown in Wisconsin contains higher levels of ginsenosides than ginseng grown anywhere else due to the rich, sandy soil and perfect temperate climate.
