Supplements #15: SIBERIAN GINSENG is used to prevent colds and flu and as an adaptogen to reduce stress effects on the body.

SIBERIAN GINSENG is used to prevent colds and flu and as an adaptogen to reduce stress effects on the body. It should not be confused with Panax Ginseng. It is in another species called Eleuthero. It is made from the roots of the plant like Panax but it is a woody root. This plant which has purple berries and grows as a shrub was first studied in Russia where a cheaper form of ginseng was desired. It contains Eleutherosides and other antioxidant phenolic compounds. It was given to Russian Cosmonauts and athletes to improve endurance. It also was shown to prevent viral infections and studies show stimulation of immune function with the Eleutherosides. Extracts are available as a liquid, powder or capsule. This ginseng is entirely different from Panax Ginseng and has different properties. Another interesting gift from The plant world pharmacy that needs much more research!! #drdavidheber #immunity #ginseng #eleuthera #flu to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com
