Oriental Ginseng

Oriental ginseng is also known as Siberian ginseng and has been used by people to make medicine for many centuries. It is only the root what is precious in medicine. Oriental ginseng can strengthen the human organism and increase resistance to stress. Except for being used as an adaptogen, oriental ginseng can also help to treat such conditions as heart diseases and problems with blood vessels including low blood pressure, high blood pressure, rheumatic heart disease and, hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis).
Oriental ginseng is also effective for Alzheimer's disease, kidney disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), fibromyalgia, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, colds, flu, chronic bronchitis, and even tuberculosis. It can also remove the side effects of cancer chemotherapy. Sometimes oriental ginseng is applied to enhance athletic performance and endurance. It can effectively treat insomnia and herpes simplex type 2.
Oriental ginseng works due to chemicals it contains. These can affect the immune system, brain, certain hormones in the human body and even kill some viruses and bacteria.

Oriental ginseng is safe for adults when used for a short period of time. Although side effects occur seldom, some people can notice drowsiness, sadness, heart rhythm changes, muscle spasms, anxiety, etc. In high doses, oriental ginseng might increase blood pressure. Pregnant and breast-feeding ladies should better avoid using oriental ginseng, as not much is known about its side effects in these periods.
Oriental ginseng can cause irregular heartbeat, a pounding heart, and high blood pressure. That's why if you have heart disorders (rheumatic heart disease, hardening of the arteries, or history of heart attack) you have to use this product only under a doctor's supervision. Oriental ginseng should be avoided by people with high blood pressure.
Hormone-sensitive conditions such as endometriosis, uterine cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, or uterine fibroids are reasons not to use Oriental ginseng at all, as it might act like estrogen. It can also affect blood sugar levels.
