One of the most antioxidant-packed herbs is ginseng. Benefits to brain health, immunological function, blood sugar regulation, and possibly more have been suggested by studies. Used in TCM since ancient times, Ginseng Nuitrition (โสม สรรพคุณ, which is the term in Thai) has a long history of beneficial effects.
This short, slow-growing plant has fleshy roots that might be fresh, white, or red, depending on how long they’ve been grown. Ginseng is classified as either “fresh,””white,” or “red,” depending on when it was picked (often between 4 and 6 years).
· Its Anti-Inflammatory Properties Are Due To Its Antioxidant Content.
The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of Ginseng Nuitrition are well-documented. Several in vitro experiments have demonstrated that ginseng extracts and ginsenoside chemicals can lessen oxidative damage to cells and slow the progression of inflammation, two factors that might contribute to the development of chronic illness.
· Enhanced Vitality
People who are feeling weak and exhausted may find that taking ginseng helps them become more physically and mentally active. Ginseng was proven to be effective in treating chronic fatigue in a study including 21 men and 69 women. The weariness that often comes with dealing with cancer was found to be alleviated by ginseng in a study conducted in 2014. However, studies on ginseng’s energy-boosting properties have only been conducted on patients. The results of the ginseng study in persons who had completed cancer treatment were inconclusive.
· Avoiding The Flu
Studies on mice have shown promising results for using ginseng in the treatment and prevention of respiratory syncytial virus and influenza (RSV). Another study found that the survival rate of human lung epithelial cells infected with the influenza virus was increased after being exposed to red ginseng extract.
· Effects On Aging
Ginseng Nuitrition has potent anti-aging properties. Long-term exposure to UVR can cause free radical production in the skin. There is a protein called collagen in the skin that gives it its resilience, suppleness, and firmness. Exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) damages collagen and impairs the skin’s antioxidant defense system, which in turn accelerates the aging process.
· Improves Fertility
Ginseng is used as an aphrodisiac in traditional Chinese medicine. It improves sexual performance and is prescribed for erectile dysfunction. Ginseng improves both sperm count and sperm quality in males. It is believed that ginseng’s ginsenosides are responsible for this effect. Additional research has shown that taking ginseng three times daily for two to three months can help men with erectile dysfunction.
