WHAT IS SIBERIAN GINSENG?

Siberian Ginseng comes from the Eleutherococcus Senticosus plant (yes, it’s a bit of a mouthful), and has been used for centuries thanks to the benefits it can provide.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF SIBERIAN GINSENG

As mentioned, there are numerous health benefits of Siberian Ginseng. Let's take a closer look at what these benefits are and how they can improve your life!

1. Boosts Immune System

One of the main benefits of Siberian Ginseng is the boost it can provide to our immune systems. 

Siberian Ginseng is able to increase the number of T-lymphocytes in your body and these cells are key to building a strong immune system.

Recent studies have suggested that taking Siberian Ginseng may help to boost your immune system to prevent coughs and colds and help to reduce how long you have that pesky cold for.

2. Reduce Stress & Anxiety

It’s becoming increasingly popular to take Siberian Ginseng for anxiety. Siberian Ginseng helps the body to promote adaptation to stressors both physical and emotional. 

As this herb is known to stimulate mental calmness, people who struggle with mild or occasional anxiety, insufficient sleep, nervousness or hyperactivity may benefit from these stress-reducing properties.
