Health Notes

American Ginseng

American Ginseng
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Common Cold and Sore Throat
Dose: 400 mg per day of a freeze-dried extract
In a double-blind study, supplementing with American ginseng significantly reduced the number of colds that people experienced over a four-month period.(more)
Infection
Dose: Refer to label instructions
American ginseng supports the immune system and protects against microbes.(more)
Type 2 Diabetes
Dose: 3 grams with or following meals
Supplementing with American ginseng may help improve blood sugar control.(more)
Athletic Performance
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Asian ginseng has been associated with improved athletic performance, though findings have been inconsistent. Its cousin, American ginseng, was found ineffective at improving endurance exercise performance in untrained people after one week. It is possible that different amounts and durations might affect results.(more)
Common Cold and Sore Throat
Dose: 400 mg per day of a freeze-dried extract

In a double-blind study, supplementation with American ginseng significantly reduced by 27% the number of colds that people experienced over a four-month period, compared with a placebo.1 The amount used in this study was 400 mg per day of a freeze-dried extract.

Infection
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Herbs that support a person's immune system in the fight against microbes include the following: American ginseng, andrographis, Asian ginseng, astragalus, coriolus, eleuthero, ligustrum, maitake, picrorhiza, reishi, schisandra, and shiitake.1

Type 2 Diabetes
Dose: 3 grams with or following mealsIn a small preliminary trial, 3 grams of American ginseng was found to lower the rise in blood sugar following the consumption of a high-glucose drink by people with type 2 diabetes.1 The study found no difference in blood sugar-lowering effect if the herb was taken either 40 minutes before the drink or at the same time. A follow-up to this study found that increasing the amount of American ginseng to either 6 or 9 grams did not increase the effect on blood sugar following the high-glucose drink in people with type 2 diabetes.2 This study also found that American ginseng was equally effective in controlling the rise in blood sugar whether it was given together with the drink or up to two hours before.

Athletic Performance
Dose: Refer to label instructionsExtensive but often poorly designed studies have been conducted on the use of Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng) to improve athletic performance.1, 2While some early controlled studies suggested there might be benefits, several recent double-blind trials have found no significant effects of Asian ginseng on endurance exercise.3, 4, 5In many studies, it is possible that ginseng was used in insufficient amounts or for an inadequate length of time; a more effective regimen for enhancing endurance performance may be 2 grams of powdered root per day or 200 to 400 mg per day of an extract standardized for 4% ginsenosides, taken for eight to twelve weeks.6Short-term intense exercise has also not been helped by Asian ginseng according to double-blind trials,7, 8 but one controlled study reported increased pectoral and quadricep muscle strength in non-exercising men and women after taking 1 gram per day of Asian ginseng for six weeks.9



An extract of a related plant, American Gingseng (Panax quinquefolius), was found ineffective at improving endurance exercise performance in untrained people after one week's supplementation in a double-blind study.10Standardized extracts of American ginseng, unlike Asian ginseng, are not known. However, dried root powder, 1-3 grams per day in capsule or tablet form, can be used. Some herbalists also recommend 3-5 ml of tincture three times per day.

      Comments about PROCERA AMERICAN MUSCLE NIRVANA:

      been looking for a supplement to give me some kind of kick when going through long tedious days. My body doesn't really react well with most prework out supplements as they usualy only last me about 30 min before they wear off completely however I had a different experience with this. Though a bit expensive I can actually say this stuff gave me quite a kick. I took 2 pills at 8 am. felt nothing. kind of irritated. so took another one at 10 am. still nothing. felt like i just threw $100 out the window. however by one in the afternoon I started to feel this tremendous amount of energy clear focus and overall pumped up feeling. Not sure why it took so long to kick in but its eleven at night and I still feel great. mentally and physically. Going to take it again tomorrow and will give updates to see if it actually is reliable but so far I'm surprisingly not let down
