Panax Ginseng

Ginseng is noted for being an adaptogen, and to a certain extent, an antioxidant.[1]

Panax Ginseng is a species of ginseng, native to China, Korea, and Russia, that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years to primarily treat weakness and fatigue.[2]

More recently, a small study of healthy, young volunteers who received a dose of Ginseng found improved cognitive performance, secondary memory performance, speed of performing memory tasks, and accuracy of attentional tasks.[3]

A study to test a Ginkgo/Ginseng combination stated, “The Ginkgo/Ginseng combination was found significantly to improve an Index of Memory Quality […] and reflected improvements to a number of different aspects of memory, including working and long-term memory.”[4]

Dr. Andrew Scholey from the University of Northumbria describes a study involving Ginseng, “What seems to be happening is that it is improving the available mental energy."[5]

The results of two small studies,[6,7] each including young, healthy volunteers, showed improvement in certain psychomotor functions, such as better attention, processing, and auditory reaction time. However, some effects present at week four disappeared by week eight.[7]
