It is only in the past 20 years that American researchers have begun to study the chemistry, pharmacology, and general biology of American ginseng. Studies on chemical components and pharmacokinetics have been conducted by researchers at the Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmacognosy, College of Pharmacy, University of Minnesota under the direction of Professor E. John Staba, and by Professor Ara Der Marderosian of the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy. Studies on population dynamics, pollination, breeding systems, and demographics have been conducted by Professor Walter Lewis, Washington University.
Research on American ginseng is still in its infancy. As Professor Staba noted in a letter to the editor in Lancet (1985), "Evaluation of existing studies is not going to establish ginseng as a useful therapeutic agent. What we need now are long-term, controlled human studies of ginseng to identify predictable beneficial or harmful physiological effects. If such effects were to be found we might be better able to find out how ginseng works."
While questions remain regarding how and if American ginseng works, one thing is clear: the mystique and search for the truth will continue to engross scientists and nonscientists alike.
Summary Evaluation: American ginseng, like Asian and Siberian ginseng, is traditionally used as a tonic or adaptogen to enhance health and combat stress or disease. Few clinical trials have been conducted. In one well-designed study, American ginseng did not enhance physical performance. In another series of studies, single doses of one product mildly attenuated post-prandial glycemia; whether this effect is reproducible and beneficial for diabetics awaits chronic dosing trials. There are no well-documented adverse effects of American ginseng.
American Ginseng is a species of ginseng that grows wild in North America. In the 18th century, wild ginseng was discovered in North America, and was called, not surprisingly, "American ginseng." Since then, many ginseng farms have sprouted up, though it is still possible to find wild American ginseng. The state of Wisconsin is the capital of American ginseng. American ginseng is used as a energy booster and to improve circulation as well as strengthen immune system. It works on the spleens and lungs The spleen assimilates external energy and transforms it into internal energy. The lungs govern the body's physiological energy and distributes around the body. Even if you are not ill, ginseng can help increase your vitality, improve your energy level and promote general good health. The major difference between panax red ginseng and American ginseng is its potency. American ginseng has a milder qi boosting effect and so is suitable for people of all ages and conditions. American ginseng is mainly used for clearing the body's inner heat and tonifying the qi. Our bodies accumulate inner heat when we consume too much fried or spicy foods, don't get enough sleep, or during the hot summer months. American ginseng is good for gently boosting your energy level and for helping to overcome the irritability that comes from lack of sleep, or to help the acne resulting from too much fried foods.
