Korean ginseng can help you from various diseases or symptoms...
Fatigue & Stress,
Red Ginseng has an anti-aging effect...
W. Park of Seoul National University found that the non-saponin components of
Korean red ginseng suppressed the harmful effects of free oxygen radicals (O2-,
H2O2, OH-, 1O2) which
exercise an important role in tissue degeneration. He said it occurred in
result of elimination of O2- by the ginseng
H. Han of Seoul National University reported that Korean red ginseng contains
phenolic compounds and maltose that have anti-stress activity as well as
anti-aging activity (Chinese Medicine Symposium, 1985).
Red Ginseng helps recovery from anemia...
Dr. Kaneki of
Toyama Central Hospital in Japan administered the effective component of Korean
red ginseng to 13 anemia patients and found that it was effective on hypo
chromic anemic and intractable anemic caused by gastrectomy (Shinliou &
Shinyaku 7(12) 109).
Yamamura of Osaka University and Arichi of Kinki University found, through
cooperative research, that Korean red ginseng was effective in 3 out of 20
aplastic anemia patients, while 14 out of 38 patients recovered from anemia
symptoms of liver disease, stomach disease, diabetes, and tuberculosis. In
addition, from a clinical study with 51 anemia subjects who were unresponsive to
various therapeutics, Professor Arichi reported that Korean red ginseng was
effective against rheumatic, tuberculosis, and senile
Red Ginseng Helps You From Atherosclerosis & Hypertension
N. Joo of Yonsei University studied the effect of Korean red ginseng on
hyperlipidemia induced by feeding food containing large amounts of cholesterol
to rabbits. At the 3rd International Ginseng Symposium in 1980, he
reported that Korean red ginseng not only lowered cholesterol level in the blood
by promoting the activity of various enzymes related to the lipid metabolism but
also prevented atheroma formation due to hyperlipidemia, an accumulation of
lipid containing material walls.
of Nissei Hospital in Osaka reported that administration of Korean red ginseng
powder to 67 patients suffering from hyperglycemia as a result of diabetes
lowered the level of blood cholesterol, trighycerides, and platelet
adhesiveness, and increased the level of HDL protein (Planta Medica,
Ginseng improves blood circulation...
N.D. Kim of Seoul National University observed and compared the regression of
contractability of the exercised heart from two groups of rats : one that was
given Korean ginseng and the other that was not. As a result, he confirmed
that the heart of the rats given Korean ginseng showed prolonged contractions
longer than that of control rats (Journal of Pharmacology, 1982).
administered Korean ginseng to 30 male and female patients (45 years old on
average) suffering from atherosclerosis, diabetes low blood pressure, and liver
cirrhosis. The result was satisfactory recovery from those subjective
symptoms-headache, heaviness in the head, muscular arthralgia, fatigue-without
any side effects.
Red Ginseng enhances brain activity...
Dr. Petkov of
Physiological Research Institute of Bulgaria and Professor J. S. Oh of Seoul
National University found that Korean red ginseng enhances brain activity and
maintains psychological stability by selectively controlling mechanism of both
stimulation and pacification.
* Protopanaxadiol saponin : Pacification of CNS
* Protopanaxatriol saponin : Stimulation of CNS
1989, with the subject of Korean ginseng and brain, Dr. Petkov of Physiological
Research Institute of Bulgaria stated, at the International Ginseng Seminar held
at the University of Tokyo, that Korean red ginseng is notably effective in
artificially induced amnesia in mice and the loss of memory and increases
learning ability of the animal. Professor Saito of the University of Tokyo
also reported that Korean red ginseng is effective in enhancing brain activity
based on his study similar to the study of Dr. Petkov. Especially, he
reported that Korean ginseng extract and ginsenosides Rg1 and Rb1
exerted preventive effect on the retardness of sexual behavior and learning
ability of the animals suffering from constant stress. These reports
clearly indicate that Korean red ginseng not only prevents deterioration of
brain activity but also stimulates it.
Korean Red Ginseng Can Help You From Cancer...
Ueki of Kumamoto University examined the anticancer effect of 117 kinds of herbs
in 1961 and found that Korean red ginseng exerts anticancer effects on Ehrlich
abdominal ascites cancer cells.
Professor W. I. Hwang of
Korea University reported in 1991 that he found the anticancer effect of Korean
red ginseng was superior to that of Chinese red ginseng through the studies of
anticancer fraction in Korean red ginseng and Chinese red ginseng.
Dr. T. K. Yun
of Korea Cancer Center Hospital, in a presentation titled Effect of red ginseng
on the activation of anticancer cell at the 8th Asia-Pacific Cancer Conference
in September, 1987, stated that Korean red ginseng, had a remarkable effect on
the activation of natural killer cells that are able to kill cancer cells based
on the result of administering Korean red ginseng for a year to rats suffering
from lung cancer.
Korean Red Ginseng Can Help You From Diabetes...
Kimura of Toyama University in Japan, based on the result from the animal tests,
stated at the 3rd International Ginseng Symposium that DPG 3-2, a blood sugar
depressive component isolated from Korean red ginseng, had the function of
stimulating insulin release.
S. Cho of Kyungbuk National University, professor Okuda of Ehime University of
Japan, Dr. Yamamoto of Nissei Hospital in Osaka, Japan, and Dr. Yoshida of
Yawatahama Municipal Hospital in Japan reported results of clinical studies
that, by the administration of Korean red ginseng, the blood sugar level in
diabetes could be lowered and the insulin dosage could be reduced, and,
especially, the subjective symptoms of diabetes such as dizziness, shoulder
pain, chest pain, thirst, weariness over the whole body, and heaviness in the
head were all remarkably improved.
Korean Ginseng eliminates hangover...
N. Joo of Yonsei University observed that the administration of ginseng saponin
increased the activity of various enzymes related to alcohol metabolism, and
confirmed through the electron microscopy that the level of hepatic damage of
the rats given ginseng with alcohol for 10 days was much less than that of rats
given alcohol only.
Dr. J. Y. Lee
of the Korea Ginseng & Tobacco Research Institute tested 10 volunteers from
the institute and found that the alcohol level in the blood of those who took
Korean red ginseng with alcohol was significantly lower than those who took
alcohol alone. The fact, she stated, indicated that the Korean red ginseng
accelerated the degradation of alcohol in the blood.
Red Ginseng promotes the function of immune system...
H. Cho of Cheonnam National University administered Korean red ginseng saponin
after suppressing the function of reticuloendothelial (RE) system, which is in
charge of immune responses, using immune suppressive chemicals, to find the
restoration of the function of RE system. In similar experiment,
Professors Kubo of Kinki University and Tanaka of Hiroshima University evidenced
that Korean red ginseng promoted the function of the immune
Korean Red Ginseng protects your liver...
Oura of Toyama University in Japan found that when Korean red ginseng was
administered to rats with a two-thirds partial hepatectomy, the rate of liver
regeneration was more than 34% higher than that of untreated rats. He
called the effective components protein synthesis stimulating factor, and named
it prostisol (Proc. Symp., Waken Yaku)
R. Hahn of Chungang University also reported that Korean red ginseng reduced
histological lesions including necrotic death of liver cells induced by toxic
chemicals such as carbon tetrachloride and phenacetin (The 2nd International
Ginseng Symposium, 1978).
Korean Red Ginseng helps stomach disorders...
Matsuda and his colleagues of Kinki University administered Korean red ginseng
extract to male cats with experimentally induced gastric ulcer to study the
effect of ginseng on stomach disorders. They found that the extract
suppressed the gastric ulcer significantly as a result of improved blood
circulation in gastric mucous membrane (The Ginseng Reviews 2(3), 1984).
Dr. K. H. Ahn
treated patients with Korean red ginseng for one month and observed X-ray
photography of the stomach to find that the movement of food in the organ in
treated group was faster than untreated group. He claimed that the gastric
movement was accelerated by the Korean red ginseng treatment (Choongang
Ginseng has effects on anti-fatigue and anti-stress....
Pharmacologist, I. I. Brekhman studied the pharmacological effect of Korean
ginseng and presented the concept of tonic effect of ginseng as a phenomenon
that increases general resistance, and said that ginseng improves defense
ability nonspecifically by increasing resistance of the body against harmful
environmental conditions. He termed it as adaptogen (adaptability factor)
Dr. Petkov of
Sophia Pharmacology Research Institute reported at the 2nd International
Pharmacological Seminar held in Czechoslovakia in 1963 that Korean ginseng
accelerates the release of hormones related to the defense mechanism against
stress and thus exhibits and anti-stress effect.
Saito of the University of Tokyo also reported in 1984 that treating mice with
Korean ginseng remarkably prevented the decline of physical capability due to
stress accumulation when the mice were forced to walk a tight rope.
