Traditionally used to prevent colds and flu and to increase energy, longevity, and vitality, Siberian ginseng is widely used in Russia as an "adaptogen." An adaptogen is a substance that is supposed to help the body better cope with stress, either mental or physical. Until recently, most scientific research on Siberian ginseng was done in Russia. Research on Siberian ginseng has included studies on the following:
Colds and flu
Some double-blind studies have found that a specific product containing Siberian ginseng and Andrographis reduced the severity and length of colds, when taken with 72 hours of symptoms starting. Researchers don’t know whether Siberian ginseng was responsible, or whether it was Andrographis or the combination of the two herbs. One study found that people with flu who took the same product saw their symptoms go away faster than those who took the drug amantadine, which is used to treat some kinds of flu. Another study found that healthy people who took Siberian ginseng for 4 weeks had more T-cells, which may indicate strengthening of their immune systems.
Herpes viral infection
One double-blind study of 93 people with herpes simplex virus type 2, which can cause genital herpes, found that taking Siberian ginseng reduced the number of outbreaks. Outbreaks that did happen were less severe and didn't last as long. Talk to your doctor about whether use Siberian ginseng as a supplement to prevent herpes outbreaks is right for you.
Siberian ginseng is often used to maintain or restore mental alertness. But there haven' t been enough scientific studies to know whether it really works. One preliminary study found that middle-aged volunteers who took Siberian ginseng improved their memory compared to those who took placebo.
Although Siberian ginseng is frequently suggested to improve physical stamina and increase muscle strength, studies have shown only mixed results.
Quality of life
One study found that elderly people who took Siberian ginseng improved mental health and social functioning after 4 weeks of therapy, compared to those who took placebo. But after 8 weeks, the benefits decreased.
