BC White Ginseng 500mg 100 caps
Organika’s BC White Ginseng Capsules are a pure source of American Ginseng. Native to North America, American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) was first discovered in present-day Montreal in 1716. Organika®’s BC White Ginseng is a locally sourced herbal medicine that helps relieve nervous dyspepsia and aids digestion during periods of stress.
The main active constituents in ginseng are ginsenosides. Compared to Asian ginseng, American ginseng (often referred as “cold ginseng”) contains less of the ginsenosides responsible for increasing the body’s ability to utilize adenosine triphosphate (ATP) during periods of stress. American ginseng, however, typically contains ten times more ginsenosides, which are responsible for central nervous system anti-stress activity, compared to the ginsenosides that function as a central nervous system stimulant. Due to the compositional differences, traditional Chinese medicine claims that American ginseng offers a cooling yin effect, which offsets the “heat” caused by certain stressors, such as overworking and excess noise.
Traditional Chinese medicine clearly distinguishes between Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng) and American ginseng. The ginsenoside and polysaccharide constituents in ginseng have demonstrated hypoglycaemic activity. American Ginseng is traditionally known to provide the opportunity to experience a wide range of health benefits. It can promote normal blood sugar levels, increase appetite, support brain function and memory, and it also possesses anti-inflammatory properties.
