Ginseng (Panax)
Herbs G-L
Written by Maff     October 26, 2007    
I have found panax ginseng to be a very powerful herb with many benefits. As a sufferer of both CFS and depression I found this herb to be beneficial for both conditions, boosting both energy and mood.

I felt more energy on a sustained basis and the benefits increased the longer I took the herb. Panax ginseng also significantly brightened my mood, which combined with the increased energy allowed me to greatly increase my daily activities.

As well as CFS and depression I also have trouble with allergies and chemical sensitivities and panax ginseng noticeably reduced the severity of symptoms triggered by chemicals and other allergens, and the frequency with which symptoms occured.

The only reservation I have about using panax ginseng is that it can sometimes be TOO stimulating which can interfere with sleep. If this occurs you may need to adjust the amount you are taking or the frequency with which you take it. If you can get the dose right this herb is a great help.

I used a capsule form but you can get the herb in numerous other forms from every good health store. Another slight downside is that some of the premium brands can be very expensive but shop around and you will find a good compromise between quality and price.
