ELEUTHEROCOCCUS SENTICOSUS (Siberian Ginseng) INFORMATION
Active constituents isolated include eleutherosides, (isofraxiden, sesamin syringin) , as well as glucose, sucrose, betulinic acid, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and beta-sitosterol.
Eleutherococcus senticosus (ES) is not actually a ginseng, though it has the nickname of “Siberian Ginseng.” Considered to be the “King of Adaptogens” because it exhibits a wide range of protective and beneficial actions in the body. Numerous clinical studies have shown ES has a marked effect on the cells’ ability to absorb glucose. ES also has been shown to be a powerful immune-modulator, significantly strengthening the immune system when used on a daily basis. ES exhibits antioxidant properties more than twice those of vitamin E.
