Ingredient Spotlight: Ginseng

Let's talk about Ginseng, a revered longevity tonic used in Chinese medicine for centuries. 
As a therapy, it is traditionally prescribed when people are chronically tired, or get sick often. Maybe suffer from lack of appetite, chronic diarrhea, or struggle with libido and sexual function. 

Here is what science tells us

Ginseng has properties that decrease inflammation before it has a chance to do any lasting damage. It can improve concentration and cognitive function (brain power). It speeds up  metabolism and provides an energy boost, while lowering blood sugar.
It can treat erectile dysfunction in men and Korean red ginseng improves sexual function in pre-menopausal woman.

For me, the most exciting property of Ginseng is that it is an ADAPTOGEN, meaning that it may enhance the body's ability to adapt to physical stress and possibly to mental stress. I am all over having less stress, while getting energy and protection to boot. What about you?
