Ginseng: What is this food supplement?
Ginseng is a herbaceous plant consisting of a main root that branches into several lateral roots, which is reminiscent of the human body. Ginseng has been known in Korea and China for more than 5,000 years and is often found in ancient stories. Here it is seen by traditional medicine as a “driving”, “strengthening”, “vitalizing” and “harmonizing” plant.
Ginseng (Panax ginseng) plays an important role in herbal medicine as a means of building up resistance and supporting sexual potency. The ginseng root gives stamina, energy and mental strength for an active life in good health – especially for weakened, recovering or mature people.

Ginseng Extract: How does this energizing food supplement work?
The main active ingredients of Korea Ginseng are ginsenosides, to which researchers attribute revitalizing, tonic, immune- and nerve-strengthening, aphrodisiac, anti-diabetic and cancer-preventing properties. The effect of ginsenosides is enhanced by numerous minerals and trace elements: sulphur, silicon, vanadium, germanium, calcium, zinc, vitamins of the B group as well as phytosterols, amino acids and enzymes (amylase, invertase and phenolase).
Thanks to the ginsenosides it contains, Korea Ginseng Extract supports the immune system significantly. Ginsenosides stimulate the formation of cytokines and stimulate the activity of T-lymphocytes (especially interferon-gamma). These reduce the risk of colds and flu, depending on the severity and duration of the symptoms.
Ginsenosides protect the nerve cells from toxins and thus significantly reduce the risk of neurodegenerative diseases. They regulate the secretion of cortisol (stress hormone), which enables the organism to better cope with harmful environmental influences, stress situations and chronic exhaustion. By promoting the release of acetylcholine (a messenger substance that plays an important role in the ability to remember and learn), ginsenosides improve mental fitness and short-term memory overall.
The ginsenosides contained in the Korean Ginseng dietary supplement are also recommended for erectile dysfunction. By simultaneously affecting the central nervous system and the production of nitric oxide, they provide a feeling of well-being and relaxation. In this way they contribute to a faster relaxation of the smooth muscles of the penis. In this way, a solid erection, a better ability to penetrate and a significant improvement in the overall sex life (desire, lust, orgasm) are made possible. Ginsenosides have also been shown to be effective for menopausal problems.
More about the health-promoting properties of ginseng extract
Regular consumption of Korean ginseng reduces the risk of pancreatic, stomach, liver, lung, intestinal, ovarian and oral cancer. It promotes the secretion of insulin, reduces the blood sugar level and stabilizes the blood sugar level after meals in diabetics. Ginseng is successfully used in geriatrics to slow down premature aging. It promotes the reconstruction of bone structure and could therefore be helpful for patients with osteoporosis.
All these properties make ginseng an excellent helper in cases of persistent fatigue.
