American GinsengAmerican Ginseng

 

Nature's Energizer

 

A weakened immune system and fatigue are commonly encountered when one is on a low-calorie diet or in the midst of changing diets. American ginseng is a rich store of nutrients for revitalizing the body.

 

A Tonic for the Immune System

American ginseng helps to strengthen the immune system in a variety of ways. Its polysaccharides help balance the immune system and enable it to destroy existing cancer cells and viruses. Scientists reported that these polysaccharides may stimulate macrophages (multi-tasking immune cells) to secrete cytokines, chemicals that summon immune cells to deal with bacteria and viruses. American ginseng also builds up immunity by stimulating the production of tumor necrosis factor α (TNF- α ), an immune chemical used in fighting viruses.

American ginseng's immunity-building abilities have been demonstrated by its extract, which is rich in poly-furanosyl-pyranosyl-saccharide. A study revealed that consuming a moderate dose over four months may reduce the number of colds, the severity of colds and the number of days they last, possibly preventing respiratory tract infections.

Fatigue Fighter

 

Nutritional Immunology research shows that American ginseng helps the body adapt to fatigue, stressful conditions and changing temperatures.

 

American ginseng can energize when the body experiences tiredness, and tranquilize when the body is under stress. By regulating the body's production of stress hormones and protecting the hippocampus from the effects of stress hormones, the substances n American ginseng reduce stress reactions greatly. Ginsenosides such as Rb1 can help the body to cope with stress and increase rates of learning.

 

American ginseng is also packed with fiber, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, vitamin C, and B-vitamins.
