This is another ancient medicinal plant that increases brain function.
When you take a single dose which is about 200–400 mg of Panax ginseng, you reduce brain fatigue and find that you can handle difficult mental tasks, such as working with high mathematical problems, etc.
Research doesn’t show yet just how Panax ginseng is able to boost brain function as yet and it could well be due to its strong anti-inflammatory properties and effects; properties which help in protecting the brain from oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress is when our cells get “rusty” when we breathe due to oxidative stress – caused by free radicals, which are unstable molecules that damage or oxidize cells throughout our body.
To put it bluntly, free radicals can have serious consequence to our health because they contribute to disease.
There are other studies which show that the body might get too used to taking in ginseng and therefore its positive effects become less after using it for a few months.
More research is obviously required to find out just what the long-term effects are.
