Save $2.00 on Panax Ginseng — An Effective "Adaptogen"
If stress has you under its thumb, this Kat suggests you consider Panax Ginseng, an herb classified as an adaptogen because of its reported ability to provide a healthy resistance to physical, chemical, and biological stress. Among the active components of Panax Ginseng are ginsenosides, which have been shown to benefit cell and tissue health in a variety of ways and to build up general vitality, including the physical and mental capacity for work.
Panax Ginseng (also known as Asian Ginseng) is also thought to support healthy immune system function by stimulating “natural killer-cell” activity. Additional Panax Ginseng studies are still being conducted in the areas of non-insulin dependent diabetes, hormonal balance support, erectile function, immune support, and cardiovascular health.
Keep in mind that when purchasing Panax Ginseng it is important to buy your product from a company that maintains high quality testing standards due to the wide variety and quality of Ginseng products sold on the market. Happily, fair members, we put all of our products through rigorous independent testing for quality, potency, and efficacy.
