American Ginseng, Fluid Extract
Stimulates the Vital Forces of the Body
Cayce Health Care
American Ginseng has been traditionally used by the American Indians as a demulcent, general tonic, as a botanical restorative for the weak and wounded and to help the mind. American Ginseng is now valued for its "adaptogenic" (tending to bring the body to normal) properties. Research suggests it may increase mental efficiency and physical performance, aid in adapting to high or low temperatures and stress.*
Cayce Health Care Philosophy:
Edgar Cayce preferred American Ginseng. He called American Ginseng "the essence of the flow of the vitality within the system itself. It is an electrifying of the vital forces themselves."
The main active ingredients of Ginseng (American and Korean) are the more than 20 saponin triterpenoid glycosides called "ginsenosides". A major difference between American and Korean Ginseng is that the American Ginseng is rich in the Rb1 group of ginsenosides, which have a more sedative and metabolic effect on the central nervous system. American Ginseng (Rb1 ginsenosides) also increases stamina, learning ability, and has been used for stress, fatigue characterized by insomnia, to enhance immune functions, poor appetite, nervousness and restlessness.
In geriatric use, Ginseng is being researched for its benefits in supporting healthy mental functions. Ginseng may help by directly affecting the adrenal-pituitary axis, the result of which is manifested by an increased resistance to the effects of stress. This herb also supports healthy mental function through its benefits to circulation. Animal studies have clearly demonstrated Ginseng's ability to help the learning process.
