Now Foods American Ginseng is a dietary supplement containing 500 mg of powdered American ginseng root in once capsule.

American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) – a plant from the group of adaptogens, whose active substances are ginsenosides, widely used in the medicine of the USA. It is a ginseng variation subtly varying in its effect from the most popular Asian ginseng (Panax Ginseng), despite containing the same active substance. It is mainly used to prevent catching colds and as support in infections treatment by shortening the time of their duration and reducing the intensity of symptoms. It may show energizing effect as well as improve well-being and modulate stress reactions. It is attributed anti-diabetes effect thanks to the possibility of stabilizing after-meal glycaemia.

Well-being and energy level
Ginseng is known for its energizing effect. However, this effect is slightly different that in the case of caffeine, as it is not induced by the influence on the adrenergic system. The increase of energy caused by ginseng seems to be much more natural and less intrusive that in the case of coffee and caffeine. Additionally, it is devoid of potential side-effects related to typical stimulants, such as jitteriness and anxiety exacerbation. Quite the contrary, American ginseng may even reduce stress and positively influence well-being. It makes it a great alternative for the people who cannot drink coffee or simply do not like it.

Stress reaction modulation
This plant is classified to adaptogens. It means that it may influence the organism’s reaction in response to stress, both mental and physical.

In the face of constant rush and demands that we face every day, it is hard to find a person who would not have problems related to stress. Including an adaptogen plant to supplementation is definitely a beneficial option, as it allows to control the level of cortisol, which in excessive amounts may have a destructive effect and also it influences stress symptoms reduction, which in extreme cases may inhibit normal functioning.

The influence on immunity
Polysaccharides contained in this plant are mainly responsible for the interference with the work of the immune system. In the USA medicine, preparations containing ginseng are willingly used in order to improve immunity and reduce the frequency of colds in the fall-winter season as well as shorten the time of infections that already have occurred. Scientific research confirms the effectiveness of this plant regarding disease prevention with very good results.

During the supplementation one may observe a beneficial influence on general health, because of anti-inflammatory properties and the possibility to neutralize free oxygen radicals, which end their harmful activity.

There are also some premises confirming the potential influence of American ginseng on inhibiting the growth of cancer cells. This plant is willingly used as cancer prophylaxis.

The improvement of mental abilities
Using supplements with American ginseng before the planned mental activity, such as test or exam may positively influence the state of short-term memory and reaction time, thanks to which it is possible to potentially achieve better results. To a certain extent it stems from the properties that reduce fatigue and increase energy.

There also other premises confirming that this plant, used together with Ginkgo Biloba may intensify its positive influence on reducing ADHD symptoms, such as anxiety, hyperactivity and impulsivity in children who suffer from this disease.

Glycemic balance
As studies prove, regular use of a supplement with American ginseng may reduce after-meal glycaemia and in the long run also the level of glucose in blood, measured on an empty stomach. This is incredibly beneficial information for people who suffer from diabetes type II and who are genetically predisposed to this disease. American ginseng root may be used as therapy supplementation in the treatment of glycemic disorders as well as preventively to avoid them in the future.

The above mentioned effect may be also potentially beneficial during fatty tissue reduction, which in connection with the energizing effect and improvement of well-being makes this supplement worth attention of the people who try to lose weight.

Now Foods American Ginseng is recommended especially to people who want to protect themselves from diseases in the fall-winter periods. It is also worth attention of people dealing with chronic stress and low energy level. It may be potentially helpful in the case of problems with glycaemia and their prevention.
