Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus), also known as eleuthero, has been used for centuries in Eastern countries, including China and Russia. Despite its name, it is completely different from American (Panax quinquefolius) and Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng), and has different active chemical components. The active ingredients in Siberian ginseng, called eleutherosides, may stimulate the immune system.
Its root is classified as an adaptogen, able to help the body adapt to stress and restore balance. It is helpful for fatigue, especially mental fatigue. Siberian ginseng supports and enhances adrenal function and strengthens the immune system. Chronic stress can overwhelm the adrenals and lead to chronic fatigue, poor immune function, and improper blood sugar metabolism. As an adaptogen, eleuthero helps us adapt to stress. It does this by providing fuel to the adrenal glands, allowing them to function optimally when challenged by stress. This means eleuthero should be considered as a daily supplement for anyone experiencing stress on a regular basis.
