Ginseng is a slow-growing plant with fleshy roots, native to the cooler Northern Hemisphere climates of Eastern Asia. In Chinese, Ginseng is actually called Ren Shen, meaning “man root”, which describes the resemblance of the forked shape of the root to that of human legs.
The roots of the ginseng plant are traditionally used for its rich and potent medicinal properties, and abilities to revitalize the body. Used as an adaptogen, ginseng can help increase resistance to biological, chemical, and physical stresses. Studies have demonstrated that use of ginseng on a regular basis can significantly enhance one’s immune system. Other studies have discovered ginseng’s usefulness when it came to aiding diabetes patients in controlling their blood glucose levels. Even if one does not need to use ginseng to help alleviate medical problems, one can still take ginseng for a boost in energy levels. Other health benefits of taking ginseng include lowering of cholesterol, increasing sports performance, resisting aging, increasing mental capacity, and supporting cancer treatment.
As good as the benefits of taking ginseng may sound, ginseng is not for everyone. Intake of this plant should be avoided by women who are pregnant or nursing, young children, people with hormone dependent illnesses, and people dealing with heart problems. Side effects of taking ginseng include and are not limited to agitation, insomnia, diarrhea, headaches, nervousness, and heart palpitations. Ginseng may also amplify the effects of blood thinning drugs such as aspirin, and may cause uncontrolled bleeding. Ginseng has also been found to interact with a number of other drugs.
Before you rush to the Chinese traditional medicine stores to stock up ginseng roots, I should inform you that ginseng tends to be very pricey. A pound of the all-healing root, depending on the quality and origin, can cost anywhere from less than $50 dollars to a mind blowing thousands of dollars. You may be wondering, as I did when I first saw this kind of price tag, “who in the right mind would pay such a price for a plant??” Well this just goes to show that when a remedy like ginseng has effective and irrefutable therapeutic effects, any price would well worth it to those in need.
