Siberian ginseng - health benefits

Eleuthero contains many chemicals that affect the brain, immune system and certain hormones. Also, it could contain chemical substances that have activity against some bacteria and viruses.
  • Treats colds and infections of the respiratory system
Some research shows that taking a combination product containing eleuthero plus andrographis (Indian echinacea) improves symptoms of the common cold.
This mixture should be administered within 72 hours of the onset of symptoms. Some symptoms may improve after 2 days of treatment. But it usually takes 4-5 days of treatment to get the most benefits.

Because it is an immune stimulant, eleuthero can shorten the length and severity of lung infections, such as influenza and pneumonia.
  • Reduces chronic fatigue
Eleuthero may help improve mental performance in people with mild stress-induced fatigue, according to a 2009 research review published in Current Clinical Pharmacology.

Additionally, a 2004 study by Psychological Medicine found that eleuthero could benefit people with "moderate fatigue."
However, the study also found that eleuthero was not effective for people with severe fatigue. The study involved 96 people with fatigue, each of whom received either eleuthero or a placebo for two months.
  • Lowers cholesterol
Eleuthero may help reduce high cholesterol, according to a small study published in Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications in 2008.

For the study, 40 postmenopausal women were assigned to take either calcium or calcium plus eleuthero for six months.

The results of the study showed that those given calcium plus eleutero had significant decreases in LDL cholesterol and certain markers of oxidative stress (a destructive biological process linked to many major health problems, including heart disease and cancer).
  • Improves energy level and resistance to physical exercises
As a stimulant, eleuthero increases energy levels and contains compounds known to help overcome exhaustion and prevent its side effects.

One study found that eleuthero consumption significantly increased the exhaustion point of swimming mice by reducing the accumulation of lactic acid and blood urea nitrogen, in addition to increased fat utilization.

Also due to its stimulating properties, eleuthero can increase the ability of the muscles to work, especially during periods of intense physical activity.

One study found that consuming 800 milligrams (mg) of eleuthero per day for 8 weeks increased male subjects' endurance time by 23%, maximal oxygen saturation by 12%, and heart rate by 3%.
  • Blood pressure increases
Eleuthero increases circulation and heart rate and can also increase blood pressure over time.

this can be beneficial for those with low blood pressure but at the same time very risky for those with hypertension.


Other potential benefits of Eleuthero include

  • Increasing cognitive functions
  • Adjuvant in cancer treatments (especially lung cancer)
  • Faster healing of wounds and prevention of ulcers
  • Reduction of symptoms associated with osteoporosis
  • Reduction of menopausal symptoms
  • Improvement of lymphatic functions
  • Prevention and repair of nerve damage
  • Lowering or stabilizing blood sugar levels
