Ginseng increases tolerance to various stressors (e.g. mental, physical, environmental). This herb helps normalise the way in which the body responds to stress triggers and acts to regulate the manufacture and secretion of adrenal hormones. It also strengthens the adrenal glands themselves, which is especially important to those suffering from chronic stress.
Its adaptogenic activity provides non-specific support for the central nervous system, which may help restore proper neurological function after long term stress.
Studies show that Siberian ginseng enhances white blood cell activity, thus providing support to a compromised immune system. In addition, as stress suppresses immune function, the adaptogenic properties of this herb would even further promote resistance to infection.
