What Are the Benefits of Ginseng?



The Benefits of Ginseng

You
may be wondering What is Ginseng good for? The Benefits of Ginseng are
many, and in fact this page couldn't hold them all. However lets first
talk about what Ginseng is.

Ginseng,
in fact, is one of the eleven species of slow-growing perennial plants
with fleshy roots, that is part of the Panax family of the Araliaceae.
Ginseng can only be found in certain parts of the world such as the
Northern Hemisphere, in North America and in Eastern Asia (mostly Korea,
Northern China (Manchuria), and Eastern Siberia) in cool climates.

The
only known Ginseng that grows in the a little bit warmer climate is the
species known as Panax vietnamensis. It was originally discovered in
the forests of Vietnam.

The
word Ginseng comes from the Chinese term Rén meaning "man" and shen
meaning a kind of herb. It also describes the way the plant looks which
is fork like and looks like the shape of a man.Medical & Herbal Health:
Different Herbal Uses for Ginseng



Ginseng Type 2 Diabetes
Ginseng As a Natural Treatment for Type 2 Diabetes


Ginseng
roots are usually taken orally as adaptogens, aphrodisiacs, nourishing
stimulants, and has been used in the treatment of type II diabetes, as well as for sexual dysfunction in men.

The
benefits of Ginseng for type II diabetes is well known and has become
increasing important in giving hope to patients with type II diabetes.
Several studies have found that American Ginseng can lower blood sugar levels in patients diagnosed with type II diabetes.

The
effect was found both on fasting blood sugar and on postprandial (after
eating) glucose levels. One study found that people with type II
diabetes who took American ginseng before or together with a high sugar
drink, experienced less of an increase in blood sugar levels.

Another
study using lab mice found that the American Ginseng berry was more
effective at lowering blood sugar levels than the root. Lots of American
products such as soft drinks, advertise the use of Ginseng and the
benefits of Ginseng on their labels.

But as with any findings,
more research is needed before there are any definite conclusions about
the benefits of Ginseng in diabetes patients.

Benefits of Ginseng for Hair Growth



The ginseng benefits for hair growth is
an exciting part of the research being done using this well-known herb.
In Osaka, Japan, there was a study that suggested that the Ginsenoside
Ro carbohydrate was shown to help fight androgenetic alopecia, commonly
known as balding, in men. It is thought that this could have widespread
cosmetic implications and lead to future drug development for the
prevention and regrowth of hair in men with natural herbal ginseng
remedies.

Benefits of Ginseng on Skin

Drinking
ginseng tea is good for refining and rehydrating the skin effectively.
It is also thought to promote skin cell regeneration by increasing
oxygenation to skin cells. It also has the effect of boosting blood
circulation as well as detoxifying the blood, which is very important to
human skin health. Free of toxins, the skin can gain a better
complexion and therefore better look.
Ginseng Benefits Weight Loss

Ginseng
does many things to help human health, but many people do not realize
that ginseng is good for weight loss. It gives an energy boost and can
help fight fatigue. Because of this, it allows for the person to be more
active. One of the big things that it does in the weight loss battle is
by regulating blood sugar. It does this by reducing the amount of
carbohydrate that is converted into fat. Also, it is important to point
out that ginseng alone will not help lose weight if the person engages
in poor dietary choices. It is vital that a well balanced diet is
followed and that the person is active. Otherwise, like the old English
proverb says, don't dig your grave with your own knife and fork.

One
more note, we don't recommend that you take dieting to excesses. The
dangers of bulimia and anorexia is very real for many people, men and
women, in today's diet crazed world that values of looking thin. Looking
thin and being healthy is wonderful, however everything needs to be
done in moderation. Think of the health benefits of being a normal
weight, don't focus on your body's physical appearance. Most of all...
Be healthy, and the rest will fall into place.

Hopefully, you
will see that ginseng can be a key cog in helping weight loss happen
naturally. Just don't get wrapped up in it. Be happy and healthy and
remember the funny line by humor columnist Dave Barry, when he said "The
leading cause of death among fashion models is falling through street
grates." So true, Barry. So true :-)

Women's Health - What Are The Ginseng Benefits for Women?

Ginseng,
in medical herbalism, as a medical herb is commonly used in treating
women's health issues like abnormal menstruation and strong PMS
symptoms.
Women in
perimenopause often look to solutions for producing more estrogen with
ginseng. It is, quite famously, thought that this stimulation of
estrogen in the female ovaries causes a boost in libido in women. Of course, women like men, often like it because it can be useful in weight loss.
Cancer Patients Often Look to Ginseng For Help


Another
benefit of Ginseng has shown in some studies indicate that it can
inhibit tumor growth. In one laboratory study on colorectal cancer
cells, researchers found that American ginseng possessed powerful
anti-cancer properties.


Sexual Benefits of Ginseng - What Are The Ginseng Benefits Sexually?
Another
health benefit of Ginseng is for sexual dysfunction in men. In one
study that was done in Korea which evaluated the benefits of ginseng for
men in regards to erectile dysfunction, and showed that 60 percent of
men who took Ginseng said that they were able to achieve an erection
with much greater ease than without it. The other group of men who
received only a placebo reported 30 percent of them indicated that they
noticed an improvement in their ability to achieve erections.

This
study also showed that things such as the firmness of erections, and
overall thickness of the erection were also improved. Nearly two-thirds
of the men in this study said they had seen improvements with their
erection and quality of sex after taking Ginseng. This is largely due to
the increase in production of nitric oxide within the body, and there
are studies which prove that nitric oxide production is increased, too.

As
mentioned before, the health benefits of Ginseng in diabetes patients
have been significant; it's also been beneficial for those with type II
diabetes who have sexual issues as well.

Another study done on
rats that had diabetes showed that the sick rats who suffer from
diabetes had lower levels of antioxidants which meant they were more
likely to have erectile dysfunction. In this case study, however, the
diabetic rats were given Ginseng, and the results were very pleasing to
scientist. The antioxidant levels that were typically lower had greatly
increased, and as a result, their ability to achieve erections had
greatly increased.

It is important to note that this was a study
on animals, but the fact is that the results correspond with those
results found in human studies too. This cased also showed that the
libido in the rats was increased dramatically and this has also been
demonstrated in studies conducted on humans too.

What Products Use Ginseng


Although
Ginseng can be taken in different forms including pills, the most
common use of Ginseng in products is through teas and sodas. Companies
like Pepsi, Lipton and the Arizona Tea Company, have all introduced
Ginseng in their products because of its health benefits. Don't
underestimate the benefits of ginseng and green tea. Great stuff!

Even
if you aren't a tea or soda drinker, you can still purchase Ginseng at
your local pharmacy or local health food stores; most of the time it is
sold over the counter and no prescription will be necessary.

The Side Effects of Ginseng in Human Health
Now
while the health benefits of Ginseng is mostly healthful and promising
in most studies done, there are some side effects of Ginseng. In some
cases it can prevent nausea and dizziness but yet in others, it can be
increase it. It can also cause fatigue and migraine headaches; although
it is rare, it's still a possibility.
You
also have to consider that since this is an herbal medicine, there is a
greater chance that some people may have allergic reactions. This is
true especially when using white and red ginseng. Before you take any of
these products, make sure that you do not have an allergic reaction to
them.

Also, Ginseng can help lower blood pressure and blood sugar, you can still can run the risk of having anemia low insulin levels.
How Do Most People Use Ginseng To Benefit Their Health?

It
is very common for people to wonder how to best prepare and consume
ginseng. Most people love to drink ginseng tea, however it can also be
consumed by other means such as in powdered form through capsules, root
extracts, & honeyed root for direct consumption but tea is probably
the most popular. The benefits of ginseng tea are many, and shouldn't be
overlooked. It helps get the ginseng into the bloodstream faster as it
is absorbed by the stomach lining.


The benefits of Ginseng far out weigh most of the negative side effects

Most
people don't realize that ginseng is not only a herbal supplement, but
it is also used in Asian cuisine. In Korea, ginseng is very commonly
used in the local cooking. In fact it is used in many of the soups there
and, of course. You will find that a pile of chopped ginseng is often
thrown in chicken soup and simmered for hours. This softens the root and
makes it more palatable for most people. However, as a raw food, many
folks in Asia like to chew the root in its raw form too, but it is not
as common. It is a very flexible plant used in everyday Asian life. The
benefits of ginseng root usage in cooking is the added fiber to your
diet. :-)

Ginseng tea is a very popular method of consuming
ginseng. It is most common to make ginseng tea from whole roots,
although it is often sliced into root slivers as well and placed in tea
bags.
Conclusion on The Benefits of Ginseng

The
benefits of Ginseng out weigh most of the negative side effects in
taking this herb. However, before you decide to start taking Ginseng for
health benefits, you may want to speak to your doctor first. They can
give you advice on if you should take Ginseng and if you do how much you
should take.

Also realize that in a lot of cases when taking
Ginseng, that you will probably have to change your lifestyle habits as
well especially if you are taking them to lower your blood pressure and
your sugar levels. Exercise along with better eating habits (and taking
Ginseng) working together can also lower your levels as well.

Overall,
taking Ginseng for health purposes is basically harmless, just do your
homework, see your doctor and be aware of all the side effects that it
could have on your health
