What is Ginseng ?
Ginseng is the most famous Chinese herb, and is the most widely recognized plant used in traditional medicine. Various forms have been used in medicine for more than 7000 years.

China, Russia, North Korea, Japan, and some areas of North America. It was first cultivated in the United States in the late 1800’s. It is difficult to grow and takes 4-6 years to become mature enough to harvest.
Introduction of Ginseng Extract
Ginseng extract is typically derived from the root and leaves of this plant. As an herbal supplement, the extract has long been prized for its reputation of having anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and antioxidant properties. It is also used in the homeopathic treatment of conditions, including depression, stress, low libido, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. It contains vitamins A and B-6, which aids in the production of thymic hormones, necessary for the functioning of the defense system. The main active ingredients are saponin triterpenoid glycosides called “ginsenosides”.
These steroid-like ingredients provide the adaptogenic properties that enable it to balance and counter the effects of stress. The glycosides appear to act on the adrenal glands, helping to prevent adrenal hypertrophy and excess corticosteroid production in response to physical, chemical or biological stress.

How to use (dosage) ?
The recommended dosage for Ginseng extract UV80% is 50mg to 100mg per day, depending on the individual’s needs. Some Chinese herbalists recommend up to 100mg of Ginseng extract every day. Ginseng should not be taken with other stimulants (such as coffee, tea or even Guarana) and dosage should be reduced in the case of increased blood pressure (often due to other stimulants whose effects are increased by taking Ginseng). In general, it is recommended to restrict periods of treatment to 2-3 weeks with one week of rest, and Ginseng should never be used for more than 3 consecutive months. Ginseng has a strong tendency to increase the effects of other plants and medicines, which has led to numerous contraindications. Taken on its own without additional substances, the plant remains very safe.
Combination with other plants
Ginseng combines very well with plants such as Maca and Tribulus (lack of sexual energy, libido, sexuality), Rhodiola (endurance, memory, concentration, nervous balance, Ashwagandha (restorative sleep, stress, libido), Royal Jelly (energy, vitality, immunity, general health), Pfaffia Paniculata (nervous balance), Eleutherococcus (sport, endurance), Turmeric (health, general protector, anti-cancer), Garlic (high blood pressure, cardiac problems) and, in exceptional circumstances, Tea and Guarana (lack of concentration, lucidity, lack of wakefulness).
Ginseng should not be used in strong doses (risk of diarrhea and, occasionally, high blood pressure…) It should not be taken simultaneously with other stimulating substances! Dosage should be reduced in the case of over-stimulation (then gradually increased again). Ginseng should be avoided in the case of cardiac problems because it can increase the risk of high blood pressure and heart palpitations (if it is taken in high dosage or if it is mixed with other stimulants such as tea, coffee, Guarana…) However, within the recommended dosage, Ginseng has no side-effects and is effective in regulating blood pressure. Finally, beware of the risks of consuming Ginseng with other medicines, notably those with anticoagulant effects.
