Ginseng is a popular herbal remedy with a multitude of health-boosting benefits. But not all ginseng is created equal. There are several different types, and two of the most common are Asian ginseng and Siberian ginseng. Although they share the same name, their active ingredients – and so their health properties – vary.
Asian ginseng has a warming, heat-producing impact on those who take it. It’s known as true ginseng because it contains ginsenoside – the active component of the plant’s root. Siberian ginseng, on the other hand, doesn’t include this active compound. Instead, it is an excellent source of eleutherosides, an adaptogen that can help the body fight stress by working at a molecular level. The former’s botanical name genus name is Panax – or all-healing when translated from the Greek. So it’s unsurprising to find that it’s been used for centuries to cure and support all manner of health issues.
In traditional Chinese medicine, it’s the roots of the plant that are used to make a range of herbal remedies. One of its best-known qualities is that of increasing energy levels and fighting fatigue. But it’s also sometimes used to boost memory, for menopausal symptoms and even to improve insulin response in people with diabetes. This botanical has a mild stimulating effect on those who take it, and using it alongside coffee or other caffeinated drinks can increase the results you see.
Siberian ginseng is typically the form used in skincare products. This is because the botanical contains a large number of skin-friendly nutrients. It’s rich in phytonutrients that help fight the ageing impact of free radical damage. It’s also thought to be capable of boosting collagen production, keeping skin supple and so minimising fine lines and wrinkles.
This form of ginseng is easily absorbed by the skin and can speed up the subcutaneous vascular movement. Through this action, skin becomes brighter and toxins that can dull the complexion are removed.
Some functional foods also add ginseng to their ingredients list in a bid to harness the health-giving properties into an easy-digestible form. It has been used in beverages alongside energy-boosting claims and also in some foods for the same reason.
