American ginseng is a true member of the ginseng or Panax family. But, it is believed by Asian medicine practitioners to have a milder, more “yin” or balanced effect on the body than Chinese or Korean ginseng, which are more “yang” and stimulating in its effect.
There is a mounting body of evidence to support the use of American Ginseng in improving diabetes control while reducing associated risk factors such as hyperlipidemia and hypertension and ameliorating insulin resistance. It has also been shown to enhance insulin secretion. Several human studies found that American ginseng lowered blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. The effect was seen both on fasting blood sugar and on postprandial (after eating) glucose levels. American ginseng has also been shown to have powerful anti-cancer properties and is able to inhibit tumor growth particularly with colon cancer. It enhances the immune system by improving the function of white blood cells and, in human studies, has demonstrated an ability to reduce the occurrence of colds and flu.
