(Panax Ginseng)


recommendation logo leaf natural remedy review

In Chinese history, this herb, with its resemblance to a human body, is believed to cure many diseases. The Chinese consider this to be the ultimate herb, one that can used to bring youth, strength, vitality, longevity and wisdom.

When buying ginseng, be aware of the type of ginseng that it contains.
Marketed as an aphrodisiac and for treating erectile dysfunction, many products contain multiple ingredients such as yohimbe (yohimbine), catuaba, horny goat weed (epimedium), maca, ginkgo, L-arginine, damiana, muira puama, tribulus terrestris and vitamins and minerals.

Marketed as a treatment or prevention of the common cold, a product called COLD-fX is specifically designed for this purpose.

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and  Sexual Dysfunction - You may see benefits from taking this herb. Either use this herb by itself or take a combination product. Use 200 mg to 1000 mg three times daily. Try it for about a month before deciding if it helps or not.

Adaptogen (increased resistance to stress) and well-being - This is the main use of this herb in the past. You may use this herb for this purpose especially if you are always tired and feel run-downed most of the time. Start with about 200 mg daily and increase to 1000 mg three times daily as needed.

Improving Memory in Patients with Alzheimer's Disease (AD) - It is worth trying this herb for those suffering from AD. Start by taking 1000 mg three times daily. Try it for at least 3 months before deciding to discontinue it because it did not seem to work. There are many stages of AD and ginseng may not work on all stages of the disease.

Preventing and Treating the Common Cold - As ginseng is an adaptogen and suspected to support the immune system, you can expect it to help prevent or shorten the period of the common cold. The product COLD-fX has clinical studies done to prove that it works to prevent and treat the common cold.
