Ginseng: Ginseng is a plant belonging to the genus Panax of the family Araliaceae, which grows exclusively in the natural state, on the southern slopes of the mountains in the middle of thick wet forests in parts of East Asia (Manchuria Korea, Siberia) and North America
Only the root is used in medicine and particularly that of the variety: Panax ginseng CA Meyer, whose reputation is the oldest and still the largest. Chemical studies show that ginseng is rich in B vitamins (B1, B2, B12, nicotinamide, pantothenic acid), Vitamin C, estrogen, peptides and saponins.
These are also known as saponins ginsenosides which give it its stimulating properties.
Ginseng has a tonic action on the body: it increases physical and mental performance. It improves the process of memorization and reflexes. It allows a better adaptation of the body to stress by reducing fatigue, muscle pain, the rate of lactic acid in the blood and increases the utilization of oxygen by the muscles.
Moreover, by acting on the adrenal cortex, the root of ginseng has a stimulating effect on the sexual organs.
