Red Root Ginseng


Panax ginseng

Red Root Ginseng (Panax ginseng) is a popular herbal plant widely used for its variety of effects in both traditional and research-based medicines.

Antitumor: Panaxydol, one of the main compounds in P. ginseng was shown to suppress in vivo tumor growth in syngeneic and xenogeneic mouse tumor models.

Immune Boost: A study conducted on 120 chickens by Yu J et al, 2015 showed that ginseng stem-leaf saponins significantly inhibited cyclophosphamide-induced oxidative stress by increasing the organ indices, total antioxidant capacity, and the levels of glutathione, ascorbic acid, and alpha-tocopherol, while elevating the activity of total superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase, as well as decreasing the protein carbonyl content and malondialdehyde. The chickens were provided between 2.5- 10 mg/kg BW of gingseng stem-leaf saponins added to their drinking water daily, for a seven day period.

Antiviral: Orally administering ginseng stem-and-leaf saponins (GSLS) at a dose of 5 mg/kg of BW for 7 days following intramuscular injection with the inactivated Newcastle disease (ND) or Avian influenza (AI) vaccine, caused an increase in the antibody level against ND and AI in the serum of chickens.
