Ginseng is a root that is believed to offer a broad range of physical and mental benefits. It is found in many brain & memory supplements, energy drinks, and other health supplements. While the ingredient has been used for centuries and is generally considered to be very safe, there are some possible side effects, such as headaches, dizziness, nervousness, and allergic reactions can occur.

Used in Traditional Medicine

The root is used in traditional herbal medicine to treat many ailments and improve concentration and memory. It is important to buy quality ginseng, since some less than reputable manufacturers may use less quantity to save money. You can find quality supplements that contain panax ginseng at Smart Pill Guide and read reviews with information about the ingredients, dosage & side effects of supplements that produce results.

Asian or Korean Ginseng

There are two main varieties of this root. The first is Asian or Korean Ginseng, also known as panax. This is the type that has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine for a wide range of therapeutic benefits. It is the most commonly used type of ginseng in quality nootropic supplements for enhancing focus, concentration, and working memory.

American Ginseng

The other variety is known as American ginseng. That variety of ginseng is less concentrated and less stimulating than the Asian or Korean type. However, this does not mean the American variety offers no therapeutic benefits. In fact, this type has been shown to reduce the severity of cold symptoms and there are studies that demonstrate this benefit.

Abundant Health Benefits

Ginseng is among the most used ingredients in herbal medicines, due to the varying health benefits. The root has been shown to lower blood sugar levels, and boost immune system function. In traditional medicine, it is used to treat erectile dysfunction, heart disease, high blood pressure, menopausal symptoms, hepatitis C, cancer, and other conditions.

Mental Acuity and Memory

Ginseng helps support memory, focus, and concentration. For this reason, it is used in the formula of many nootropics pills, along with other brain boosters ingredients. There is some evidence that suggests the cognitive enhancing effect is increased when the root is combined with gingko. In addition, it improves mood and energy levels, due to the mild stimulant effect.
