Thực phẩm chức năng: Difference Between Korean & Siberian Ginseng

Ginseng has been used in traditional folk medicine as a powerful immune booster and as a treatment for a variety of ills for thousands of years. The first written accounts were of Chinese ginseng, Panax panax, in the "Shennong Bencao Jing," a Chinese medical book dating back to 100 A.D. But, as with many plants, there are various species, and not all of them share the same healing properties. The differences between Korean ginseng and Siberian ginseng are notable, because they contain different active chemical components. Before taking any type of ginseng, consult a qualified health practitioner.

Siberian Ginseng

Siberian ginseng, Eleutherococcus senticosus or eleuthero, is a shrub native to the Far East, growing in places such as Siberia, China, Japan and Korea. Although it has stems and leaves, only the root is used as a medicinal. Siberian ginseng is referred to as an "adaptogen," which means it can help the body adjust for optimal health under stress conditions. The active ingredients in Siberian ginseng are called eleutherosides, which researchers think stimulate the immune system. It also contains polysaccharides, thought to help boost immunity and lower blood sugar. Siberian ginseng, now more often referred to as eleuthro, is not a member of the Panax family, unlike Korean and American ginseng, which means it is not a true ginseng.
