There are several plants that are commonly referred to as ginseng. In the strict sense of the word “ginseng” refers to the Panax genus, of which Korean and American ginseng are the most well known medicinal herbs. Siberian, Indian and Brazilian ginsengs are not members of this genus, but share similar medicinal effects to the true ginsengs.
The ginsengs are adaptogenic herbs, meaning that they help people during stressful times and recovery from illness and fatigue. The ginsenosides and eleuthrosides are the active medicinal components of the ginsengs. Studies show that they have a structure that is similar to the steroid hormones and act through the brain. The end result is stimulation of the adrenal gland and activation of the body’s energy reserves. This response keeps us safe, allowing us to fight for survival, or to flee from dangerous situations. It also increases heart rate; blood pressure and blood flow to the brain, muscles, lungs and heart. Thus ginseng leads to increased energy, mental performance and performance in physical tasks like athletics. This response can deplete the body after a while so ginseng also contains substances that stimulate cell replication, protein synthesis, immune functioning and blood sugar regulation. All of these properties nourish the body and aid in recovery from times of high activity, illness and stress. The ginsengs are recommended by natural health practitioners for a variety of needs including athletic performance, energy, recovery from illness or surgery, stress, support during cancer treatment, impotence, low libido and frequent colds and flus.
The difference in the ginsengs is the strength of their activity and the amount that they stimulate versus nourish the body. Red Korean ginseng is the most stimulating and least nourishing. It is usually recommended for men. Korean white ginseng is slightly less stimulating than the red variety and is a good choice for energy enhancement in women. Both of these varieties are not usually recommended for long-term use. Siberian and American ginseng are moderately stimulating and more nourishing. They are useful for everyone and can be used for longer periods of time.
What is an adaptogenic herb?
Adaptogenic herbs tend to normalize body functions, and when the job is completed, they are eliminated or incorporated into the body without any side effects. Adaptogenic herbs are especially useful in times of increased stress, lowered immunity and lessened vitality. Some excellent adaptogenic herbs include garlic, ginseng, echinacea, ginkgo, goldenseal and pau'darco.
Picture your body as a machine. In order to get your body to work your body needs fuel or food. It then transports that fuel to each cell. Inside each cell are little engines called mitochondria. They take in the fuel and process it to release energy.
The energy is used to power all cell processes and is the ultimate source of your body’s energy. Another body system that impacts on energy is the glandular system. Picture it as the fuel injector of your body. It regulates what fuel gets into the body, which cells get the fuel and in what amounts. The blood cells are also a critical component of the body’s energy system. They carry oxygen, a catalyst for many cell activities, around the body.
Lack of energy can be attributed to many causes. All of these causes must negatively impact on our body’s ability to get fuel into the body, inhibit the mitochondria’s ability to turn it into energy or alter the functioning of the hormonal and blood system.
Poor nutrition impacts on energy in obvious ways. If your body does not have enough raw materials to provide for it’s functioning than you will feel fatigued. The standard North American diet is deficient in vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. It is high in saturated fat, refined carbohydrates and chemical additives and preservatives. These substances not only do not give your body usable energy, but they also inhibit the use of good quality food by depleting enzymes and hormones necessary for energy conversion. The body must also deal with the toxic by-products of foods like bleached flour and sugar, artificial sweeteners and flavours and trans-fatty acids. Energy expenditure is funnelled towards detoxification of these substances instead of growth, cell replication and metabolism.
Korean red ginseng has quickly become indispensable in the medical field of alternative medicine. Best known for it's ability to alleviate erectile dysfunction (ED).

On top of that, your physical capability to have intercourse more often will also increase without the need or embarrassment of having to rely on popping a pill and waiting for the effects to kick in.
Less commonly discussed, but just as important are the results from studies done on Korean red ginseng and cancer cells, specifically in lowering the chances of relapse for those recovering from gastric cancer. Falcarinol, a fatty alcohol found in red ginseng has shown promising results an anticarcinogenic on breast cancer cells. Several other types of fatty alcohols in red ginseng has been found to have uses in antibiotical applications.
