About Siberian Ginseng Powder Organic
Siberian Ginseng powder is made from the creamy yellow root, which contains several components, known as eleutherosides, an active component with stimulant-like and anti-stress effects. It is these components that give the plant its health benefits. The eleutherosides also enable Siberian Ginseng to balance the effects of stress.
Additionally, Siberian Ginseng contains complex chains of carbohydrates, known as polysaccharides. Polysaccharides are long complex chains of carbohydrate molecules made up of small sugar molecules. They stabilise blood pressure, support the cells and tissue, and help neutralise free radicals.
By far the biggest single use of Siberian ginseng is its ability to increase energy. Although cellular energy requires the production of the ATP molecule manufactured within every cell of the body, the primary glands for secreting energizing hormones and enzymes are the adrenals. Siberian ginseng works to stimulate these enzymes so that symptoms of low energy and fatigue are addressed.
Siberian ginseng has also been found to increase white blood cell counts particularly T lymphocytes and natural killer cells. These cells work to engulf bacteria and viruses and are therefore important to protect the body against infection. Siberian ginseng is therefore frequently used as an immune booster.
