Supplement on Ginseng to Sooth Your Stress

Is an herbal supplement derived from the roots of the ginseng plant claimed to be an “adaptogen”, a herb that increase the body’s resistance to physical or emotional stresses. The answer to this question comes straight as “Yes” when the GHC team asked the expert, Dr Preeti Chabbra, Ayurveda Consultant at Ganga Ram Hospital. She tells more about ginseng and its goodwill in treating depression. Read on.

Ginseng may benefit people who are feeling fatigued and over-stressed and those recovering from a long illness. The herb has been shown to balance the release of stress hormones in the body and support the organs that produce these hormones. It may also enhance the production of endorphins, ‘feel-good’ chemicals produced by the brain. Many long-distance runners and body builders take ginseng to heighten physical endurance. Some nutritionally-oriented doctors and herbalists believe that ginseng is able to delay fatigue because it enables the exercising muscles to use energy more efficiently.

There is some scientific evidence that ginseng improves mental performance, including memory and concentration, and is useful in reducing blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Other benefits may include treating some cardiovascular conditions (including high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (emphysema, chronic bronchitis) and bothersome menopausal symptoms. Also it helps protect nerves from damage (including damage due to diabetes), supports the liver to restore itself after damage, aids digestion and protects the stomach against ulcers caused by too much acid or aspirin.
Besides all above Ginseng is also helpful for a number of general uses, such as: stimulating the immune system, improving overall mental health and functioning (including improving memory), slowing the aging process, anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, and depression, to name a few.
