Olimp Platinum Ginseng Sport Edition is a dietary supplement with extracts from Korean ginseng (Panax ginseng C.A. Mey) and American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius), standardised to provide ginsenosides. The whole composition is fortified with barley extract (Hordeum vulgare L.).
The formula promotes the body’s regeneration, adds vitality, improves cognitive functions and reduces fatigue. As a result, it may contribute to improving athletic performance and the quality of workouts.
Ginseng is one of the oldest medicinal plants. It has been probably used in the folk medicine of East Asian countries for more than 5000 years. Ginseng boosts vitality and strengthens the body. It contributes also to improving psychomotor performance, increases the body’s tolerance to external factors and helps fight infections.
The generic name Panax has been given by Carl Linnaeus in 1753. It comes from panakes – the Greek word meaning ‘all-healing’. The name ginseng comes from Chinese and denotes ‘man root’ because the root of this plant resembles a human body.
American and Indian ginseng – differences
Compounds from bioactive ginseng extract are primarily triterpenoid saponins, called ginsenosides or panaxosides. Biological effects depend not only from the content of these compounds, but their relative proportions.
Two species of ginseng from the supplement have similar properties, although they have a different effect on various bodily functions. The action of Asian ginseng is identified with yang energy which means that it affects your stimulation, activity and speed. American ginseng has an effect on yin energy (calmness, passivity and slowness).
These distinct properties are connected with differences in the content of ginsenosides. American ginseng contains more ginsenosides Rb1 (Rb1, Rc, Rd) which have sedative properties and lower blood pressure. Asian ginseng is richer in ginsenosides Rg1 (Rg1, Rf, Re) which stimulate the central nervous system and reduce fatigue.
Ginseng and the nervous system
American ginseng has a stimulating effect on GABA receptors. Because of that, it has sedative, anxiolytic and antipsychotic properties. Consequently, it may be especially be helpful in reducing symptoms of fatigue, anxiety, neurosis and sleeping problems. In addition, it supports also memory processes, helps to memorise facts and improves mental performance.
Both species have a beneficial impact on functioning of the parasympathetic nervous system. They have neurotonic and adaptogenic properties. As a result, they enhance the resistance to cold and heat and improve the results of exercise tests.
Ginseng and the cardiovascular system
Saponins from ginseng have a positive effect on the function of the heart and blood vessels. They have antioxidant properties and thus inhibit the formation of free radicals, prevent the so-called oxidative stress and contributes to reducing oxidised LDL and triglycerides. Owing to that, it reduces the risk of atherosclerotic lesions.
Ginsenosides Rb1,, Rg1 and Re have an impact on blocking calcium channel; and stabilises heart function which can help especially individuals with irregular heartbeat associated with electrolyte disorders.
Ginseng and the immune system
Saponins from ginseng stimulates the production of protein and RNA, strengthens immunity and promotes the formation of antiviral antibodies. Ginseng can be thus used when the body is more susceptible to infections as well as bacterial and viral infections. It supports also the body’s regeneration after severe infections.
Ginseng and hepatoprotective properties
Ginseng protects hepatocytes and supports their regeneration. It prevents damages to the liver caused by toxins (alcohol, drugs). The mechanism of action of ginseng associated with its hepatoprotective function results from the synthesis of RNA, RNA polymerase and cytoplasmic polysomes.
To sum up, Olimp Platinum Ginseng Sport Edition is a dietary supplement recommended to all athletes and physically active individuals – it strengthens mobility, improves the body’s efficiency and reduces fatigue. The formula may be useful for problems with memory, concentration and in the period of impaired immunity.
As a preventive measure, ginseng is usually taken in dosage from 200 to 400 mg daily. It appears that low doses (about 40 mg) can have a beneficial effect on the body. However, the best results are noticeable at the dose of 400 mg. Because of that, the dosage recommended by the manufacturer (one capsule daily) is completely sufficient to improve cognitive functions and the overall health of the body.

Barley (Hordeum sativum) - raw food are seeds of barley (Semen hordein Sativa) and barley sprout (young sprouts), which is a valuable source of nutrients, such as vitamins (C, A, B, PP), trace elements (magnesium, potassium , calcium), fatty acids and fibre. Barley sprout improve the overall condition of the body and, in particular, affect the proper functioning of the heart, immune system and the functioning of the digestive system. Systematically consumed affect the aesthetics of the nail, skin and hair.
