Benefits of Ginseng
Ginseng, one of the most nutrient dense herbs, is a perennial plant that can be found slow growing in Eastern Siberia, Korea, and Northern China. It is best known for its invigorating health tonics, ability to naturally achieve blood sugar balance, and aphrodisiac like qualities. Below you will find the plant's greatest health benefits…
Alleviating Type 2 Diabetes
American Ginseng studies have discovered that a daily intake of ginseng can aid in blood sugar control by lowering effects caused by glucose during fasting and balancing blood glucose levels post meals. Ginseng's effect was even observed in average blood glucose levels over a short span of three months.
Aiding in Weight Control
The ginseng berry contains an extract that is believed to be extremely effective in battling against obesity and is also known for aiding in weight control (see Ginseng Dietary Supplements). Ginseng tea is widely viewed as one of the best natural appetite suppressants.
A Stimulant for Mental and Physical Health
It is believed that Ginseng in the form of a tonic can boost one's energy levels and stamina (read Concentrated Tonic Extracts). Ginseng aids athletes in effectively utilizing oxygen, metabolism regulation and by increasing energy levels. Daily consumption of the plant in tea form not only reduces an athlete's recovery time but can reduce their stress levels as well. Additionally, Ginseng tea contains properties that act as stimulants for brain cells which can improve critical thinking abilities and improve concentration.
Improve Male Sexual Function
Daily Ginseng tea consumption can aid men in reducing symptoms of erectile dysfunction as well as many other sexualy related conditions (see Ginseng Teas). Korean Red Ginseng is best known for its ability to stimulate proper male sexual function. Furthermore, it is best to first consult your primary physician before you begin to ingest ginseng as it may negatively interact with other drugs and/or cause an allergic reaction.
Aid Menstrual Symptoms
American Ginseng tea is advised to many women who suffer from menstrual cramping and distress. The tea is also associated with the ability to lessen stomach pain caused by menstruation.
