Ginseng Comparison

Various plants called ginseng have been usedmedicinally for over 7000 years. Several species grow around the world, and though some are preferred for specific health benefits, all are considered to have somewhat similar properties as effective general rejuvenators.

There are three main species of herbs commonly known as ginseng; they are referred to as Oriental (Asian), North American and Siberian ginsengs. A lesser known species is Notoginseng (also known as Nseudoginseng). The Siberian variety is not truly ginseng, but rather a distant cousin to the Oriental species. Oriental ginseng root, or Panax ginseng, is grown in China and Korea. The Chinese variety is white because the root is dried naturally. The Korean variety, or "red panax," is the most popular type and is red due to how the root is processed (carefully steamed). American ginseng, or Panax quinquefolium, root is white or yellow.

Ginseng has been used for countless generations, especially within the protocols of traditional Chinese medicine. The name originated in China and means "man plant," because Ginseng root resembles the human form, as cited in "The Complete Book of Chinese Medicine." The ancient Greeks later added the Latin prefix panax, which was derived from the word panacea, or "cure-all." Both ancient cultures relied on ginseng root to alleviate a variety of conditions, but it was viewed mainly as a tonic to increase vitality. Siberian ginseng is grown mainly in eastern Siberia and was labeled as a ginseng in modern times mainly for marketing purposes.

Both North American and Asian ginsengs contain ginsenosides (siberian ginseng does not contain any ginsenosides), although the types and the ratio of these substances are different in the Asian and American herbs. Laboratory studies in animals have found that North American ginseng is effective in boosting the immune system, and as an antioxidant. Other studies show that North American ginseng might have therapeutic potential for inflammatory diseases. Research on North American ginseng has focused on a number of conditions, some of which are described below.

Chinese Ginseng

History

The main difference between Korean and Chinese ginseng is potency. Chinese ginseng has milder energy boosting effects, so it is thought to be better suited for young children, the elderly and the very ill, as cited in "Chinese Herbal Medicine: Materia Medica." Chinese ginseng is mainly produced in Manchuria and is usually white in color, because the roots are dried in the sun. The drying process breaks down enzymes, which reduce the root's potency. It is grown for four to six years before it is harvested.

Properties

Chinese ginseng is considered "adaptogen" because of its unique ability to normalize whatever is out of balance in the body. It works to stimulate and improve the working of the brain with it's oxygenation properties. It is therefore beneficial in promoting physical and mental alertness. It is believed to increase women's level of hormones therefore recommended for menopausal symptoms. Panax ginseng not only inhibits the production of cancer cells but actually converts the abnormal cells into normal ones.Chinese ginseng possesses a stimulatory effect on sexual function in both men and women that is why ginseng has reputation for enhancing sexual desire. It increases sperm production with a marked decrease in erectile dysfunction. It may be taken by mouth or applied topically, directly to the penis to treat erectile dysfunction in men.

Chinese ginseng has been researched for the lowering of blood alcohol content by reducing absorption from the stomach. It decreases harmful LDL cholesterol and increases beneficial cholesterol HDL levels. It stimulates weight and tissue growth and thereby enhances the body's resistance to disease.

Korean Ginseng

History

Korean ginseng has been used in Traditional medicine for thousands of years. The Chinese derived the name ginseng from two words that mean, "man plant," because of the roots likeness to human form. Ginseng was later given the Latin botanical name Panax, which is related to the Greek word "panacea," meaning "cure all," because of all the conditions that ginseng seemed to alleviate. Wild Korean ginseng is rare and expensive, so the vast majority of Korean ginseng available on the market is cultivated on large farms in North Korea or China. Some Korean ginseng root is steamed for eight to 10 hours, turning it a reddish color and increasing its strength, before being processed into tea, capsules or thin slices. 

Properties

Korean ginseng is similar in its use and properties to the Chinese variety. When going through the "red" process it is considered more potent. According to "Chinese Herbal Medicine: Materia Medica," Korean ginseng regulates the yang energy in the body and can strongly boost "qi," or the life force. In Western terminology, Korean ginseng is used to increase physical and mental endurance, combat fatigue, boost energy levels, strengthen the immune system, enhance libido and normalize body functions. According to "Medical Herbalism: The Science Principles and Practices of Herbal Medicine,"
Korean ginseng has shown the ability to reduce cholesterol levels, normalize blood pressure in both hypertensive and hypotensive people, slow down memory loss in those with Alzheimer's disease and balance blood sugar levels within diabetics.

North American (Ontario) Ginseng

History

Like their Asian counterparts, the indigenous peoples of the Americas used American ginseng for countless generations for many of the same afflictions. American ginseng was once quite plentiful in all mountainous regions of the United States, but over-harvesting has caused tight restrictions on who can dig for the wild root. Consequently, most American ginseng sold on the market is cultivated on large farms, especially in the state of Wisconsin. Like its Korean relative, American ginseng is relatively easy to grow and takes about five years for the root to reach harvesting maturity 

Properties

Because of the chemicals it contains, some people use American ginseng to treat type 2 diabetes, anemia, insomnia, gastritis, impotence, fevers, attention deficit disorder, HIV, fibromyalgia and breast cancer. American ginseng is also used in herbal medicine to prevent respiratory infections.

Siberian Ginseng

History

Siberian ginseng, or Eleutherococcus senticosus, first grabbed the attention of Western medicine after it was researched and marketed by the Soviets,
It is a relative of true ginseng plants and has similar chemistry but it is not a true ginseng or Panax plant. Originally promoted in Russia as a less expensive ginseng substitute, Siberian ginseng offers stress and fatigue relieving, or adaptogenic, properties and immune stimulation. Because of its use as a tonic to boost low stamina and increase energy, cosmonauts take it to enhance endurance during space missions. Siberian ginseng does not contain the essential steroid-like ingredients called ginsenosides of true Panax ginseng, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Properties

Siberian ginseng has traditionally been used to treat conditions such as the common cold and herpes simplex virus infections and to improve the quality of life especially in the elderly. An article in the January 2002 edition of the Guardian states that eleutherosides found in Siberian ginseng extract may act as adaptogens, which help the body adjust to extreme conditions such as chemotherapy and severe viral infections. Another study published in the January 2004 edition of "Psychological Medicine" concluded that Siberian ginseng may help patients suffering from fatigue for more than six months with no known cause. 

Other studies, such as the one published in the 2004 supplement of "Archives of Gerontology and Geriatrics" have found that Siberian ginseng helps improve mental health and social functioning in hypertensive people over the age of 65 years after four weeks of therapy. The UMMC also recommends this herb to treat and prevent the common cold, flu and herpes viral infections.

Notoginseng

History

Notoginseng (Panax notoginseng) belongs to the same plant family as North American ginseng and Asian ginseng (Panax). Notoginseng root has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years as a general tonic to strengthen the immune system. It is highly prized in China for its therapeutic effects in treating cardiovascular diseases, inflammation, body pains, trauma, and internal and external bleeding due to injury.

The major active constituents of Notoginseng are similar to but not identical to those of North American ginseng and Asian ginsengs, .This is because some of the ginsenosides they share are in different concentrations. For example notoginseng contains a higher amount of Rg1 ginsenoside and no detectable amount of Rf2 ginsenoside.

Properties

Notoginseng is often used to stop or slow down bleeding. It is sometimes taken by people who have nosebleed, vomit up or cough up blood, or find blood in their urine or feces. It is also used to relieve pain; and to reduce swelling, and blood pressure. Some people apply notoginseng directly to the skin in order to stop bleeding. Notoginseng is one of the 8 herbs used in caombination (PC-SPES) to treat prostate cancer.
