The big question is can taking gensing actually help you live longer? Based on a special report, Panax gensing is a famous medicinal herb in North America and Europe. It has a long and amazing history in this regard. The purpose of the study is to investigate the association between gensing intake and mortality. Researchers studied 6,282 subjects aged 55 or older in a time period stretching from 1985 through 2003. Taking note on their various life style such as age, occupation, education, drinking, smoking, body mass index, etc. the study shows mortality of all causes for men taking gensing was significantly lower than that for non-users. Those who took gensing were less likely to suffer death caused by cancer and oddly enough, not present in women. Mortality due to heart disease was not link to gensing in men or women but the difference was not statistically significant. The two decade long story showed that gensing lowered all cause in older men, but not in women. So men who buy supplements from health food stores and supermarket might be a bit interested in this amazing little herb.
For 2,000 years it has been known that the Chinese used Panax gensing to calm the spirit, strengthens the lungs and stomach, and increase energy. Gensing is known as the world's most famous "adaptogen" herb. Meaning it can help your body adapt to any kind of stress it faces. The study reported that it causes no adverse effects, while successfully treating a wide scope of diseases and bringing balance to the body no matter what went wrong. Gensing further boost energy and mood, and although it hasn't been completely proven, this could be a great herb for people with stressful lives. It is said to fight fybromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, heart disease, diabetes, herpes, menopausal symptoms, impotence, stress, muscle soreness, low immunity, and depression. Gensing could inhibit the growth and spread of tumors. Take note on that.
The typical dose is one to two grams daily of raw gensing root or 100 to 200 mg. of standardized extracts. You should seek out a trusted supplier of gensing, because of the quality of the herb can vary on account of its expensive nature. And the commercial types you see in the pharmacy can vary in strength, so always follow packaged directions.
