What is that ?
Panax Ginseng (or Korean Ginseng) is a plant widely used in Chinese medicine. In this dietary supplement, you will find full-spectrum Korean red ginseng root extracts.
Red ginseng: Panax Ginseng Meyer
It is the one that contains the greatest variety of saponins and in particular ginsenosides and in particular of the Rg type. (see reference 1 ; reference 2 and reference 3 ).
Panax Ginseng has several "pending" health claims:
➻ Contributes to the natural defenses and the proper functioning of the immune system
This review from 2012 summarizes the knowledge about the effects of ginseng on the immune system. A more recent review , from 2021, examined the role of ginseng as an immunomodulatory agent.
Already in 1996, Panax Ginseng and immunity was a topic of interest for researchers. Indeed, this clinical trial was done with the aim of determining the properties of a standardized extract of ginseng root in inducing a higher immune response during vaccination against influenza.
A randomized controlled trial , from 2021: A total of 100 healthy adult subjects were randomly assigned to two groups who took either a 2g red ginseng tablet or a placebo daily for 8 weeks.
Conclusion of this trial: This study proved, through its eight-week intake test and subsequent analysis, that red ginseng strengthens the immune system through an increase in T cells, B cells and white blood cells , and that it is safe according to the safety assessment of the study.
One review , from 2022, focused primarily on the immunostimulatory and immunosuppressive roles of ginsenosides.
➻ Ginseng helps with fatigue, stress and convalescence. A review that summarizes the anti-fatigue effect of P. ginseng for different types of fatigue in animal models and clinical studies. A study was designed to evaluate the anti-fatigue activity of ginseng polysaccharides in an animal test of fatigue. The conclusion of this study: Ginseng polysaccharides have anti-fatigue activity, which is also reflected in the effects on physiological markers of fatigue. A pilot trial is carried out on people with chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia (CFS/FMS). A total of 188 patients completed the month-long treatment trial. Of these, 60.1% rated themselves as having improved, and 13.3% rated themselves as much better. There was also a 46% average improvement in sleep. In a randomized controlled trial carried out in 90 subjects (21 men and 69 women) suffering from idiopathic chronic fatigue (ICF). A tailored 20% ethanol extract of P. ginseng ( 1g or 2g daily) or placebo was given to each group for 4 weeks. Conclusion of this trial: Our results provide the first evidence for the anti-fatigue effects of P. ginseng in patients with FIC, and we posit that changes in antioxidant properties contribute in part to its mechanism. This randomized clinical trial conducted on people whose cancer-related fatigue (CRF) is pervasive. 2000 mg of American ginseng versus placebo for 8 weeks in 384 participants. Conclusion of this clinical trial: The data confirms the benefit of American ginseng, 2000 mg per day, on CRF over a period of 8 weeks. There was no noticeable toxicity associated with the treatment. Stress: This article examines the adaptogenic effects of ginseng.
➻ Ginseng contributes to cell protection, in particular via its antioxidant properties as described in these two articles dating from 2020: article n°1 & article n°2 . ➻ Ginseng helps maintain good sexual relations by playing on various parameters: libido, erection and sperm quality. This review , from 2013, reviews the state of knowledge in animal and human studies. A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials in patients with erectile dysfunction who took Panax Ginseng concluded: Collectively, these RCTs provide suggestive evidence for the efficacy of red ginseng in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. However, the total number of RCTs included in the analysis, the total sample size and the methodological quality of the primary studies were too low to draw firm conclusions. More rigorous studies are therefore needed. Furthermore Panax Ginseng is an adaptogenic herb ( see reference 4 ). Adaptogens are pharmacologically active compounds or plant extracts from different classes of plants. They have the ability to improve the stability of the body against physical loads without increasing oxygen consumption. Intake of adaptogens is associated not only with an improved ability of the body to adapt to stress and maintain/normalize metabolic functions, but also with better mental and physical performance (see reference 5 ; reference 6 and reference 7 ). Everything said above is a quote from some of the scientific literature. The dietary supplement presented here is in no way intended to limit, prevent, treat or cure any disease.
Directions for use: take 1 to 3 tablets per day, with water during meals.
Precautions for use: The consumption of ginseng is not recommended in case of high blood pressure and taking anticoagulant treatment.
As a precautionary measure, it should also be avoided in children under 5 , pregnant or breastfeeding women , and in combination with taking MAOIs (monoamine oxidase inhibitors, a class of antidepressants).
Finally, note that the consumption of tea, guarana and coffee should be avoided throughout a cure of ginseng.

The opinion of @T ristank_coaching https://tristank-coaching.com
As a sports coach, I work more and more with so-called "adaptogen" plants on people with a very stressful environment. I get very good results because it adapts to ALL situations! I see a revitalization in some clients. Can also be used in case of erectile disorder.
