Ginseng

The “King of Herbs” Improves Chronic Fatigue Symptoms

In All Health Watch, Featured Article, General Health by INH Research

Despite what you may think, it’s not just about being tired all the time. In fact, exhaustion is only one symptom of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). And getting a good night’s sleep or taking a nap doesn’t help.

CFS also makes it hard to concentrate on what you just read or remember how to add simple numbers. It can get so bad that just maintaining a “normal” life and relationships can be difficult.

Yet the condition remains a mystery. Doctors aren’t sure what causes it or how to fix it. The usual treatment is a combination of harsh drugs. But as usual, they don’t provide much relief. And the severe side effects—like kidney damage, stroke, and worsening depression—are hardly worth the risk.1

Your best bet? An ancient Chinese herb—one you might already know about—that research shows improves many of the symptoms.

It’s called the “King of Herbs” because it benefits so many systems in the body. It mainly works by increasing blood flow. That extra blood flow feeds the brain and improves mental capabilities.2

This 2,000 year old antioxidant gives you more energy and helps you think clearly…

Panax ginseng has been a staple in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Now, this extract is practically mainstream here in the U.S. with over 6 million people regularly taking it.3

Ginseng is a potent antioxidant that can improve mood, memory, and mental functioning in CFS patients.4 This is a huge discovery for a condition with almost no real treatments.

Study participants with chronic fatigue took 400 mg of Panax ginseng once a day for eight days. The result? These people felt calmer and were better at mental arithmetic. And the effects were practically immediate.5

Another study had even better results. The group experienced better overall mood and improvement in mental performance. They also had more energy. The study showed that ginseng can help with multiple symptoms, including fatigue which can be the most pervasive problem for CFS patients.6

But here’s the key… You need to take the right kind of ginseng. Make sure it’s panax ginseng.  The Chinese extract works better than American ginseng.

With a syndrome that causes so many symptoms, finding effective relief for even one of them may seem like a miracle. Panax ginseng safely reduces many CFS symptoms including pain, fatigue, and mental decline.
