Eleuthero: Health Benefits of Siberian Ginseng

Experience the power of plants with all-natural herbal remedies! 

You can help your body reach its best self with convenient dietary supplements. WTHN offers many a wide variety of all natural herbal supplements both on their own and in tried and true combinations to help you be at your peak performance, even during these trying times. Now, more than ever, it’s crucial to keep yourself and your family healthy and productive.

We’ve all heard of cooking spices like cumin, dill, and thyme, but you probably haven’t heard of too many others. On top of that, most people only think of herbs as cooking implements, but they’re also medicinal in nature. Herbal remedies have been prescribed by physicians for thousands of years throughout history because doctors have seen the phenomenal effects they have on our bodies. 

Herbal medicine is used to aid, restore, and harmonize the forces within your body to achieve balance and happiness. Herbs can actually come from all different parts of plants; the roots, flowers, leaves, stems, bark, seeds, and many others. They work together to promote wellness in your body, mind, and soul. Each type of herb has its own properties that contribute to those mixtures and form dietary supplements which can help you in reaching your goals in your daily life. Unlike with western medicine, it can take a few days to start feeling an herb’s effects, so be patient. 

Traditionally, herbs have been ingested as tea, after they’d been boiled. Many people have heard the phrase “bitter medicine,” and it’s true that herbal tea can be pretty bitter. To avoid that unwelcomed aftertaste, nowadays, many people prefer capsules to get their needed supplements. However, they can also come as lotions for external use if tablets aren’t your thing either.

So, let’s explore Eleuthero, its benefits, and all it has to offer.

What Is It? 

Eleuthero has many more common names that you might be more familiar with, including Siberian ginseng. This is somewhat of a misnomer because it’s not actually related to the true ginseng plant. Despite the name, it is often given in conjunction with other plant products to treat a wide range of conditions. Herbal remedies are most effective when used alongside other health and wellness avenues such as acupuncture, another great service that WTHN offers!

Siberian ginseng has traditionally been used to boost your immune system and works as an overall stimulant that is gentler on your system than caffeine. It’s known as an adaptogen which is a compound that helps your body deal more effectively with stress. It can also help improve cognitive function, so you can think clearly. At times, it can be hard to focus on everything happening in the world right now, so anything that can help with that is music to the ears. 

What Does It Do? 

On its own, Siberian ginseng has been seen to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels. However, herbs aren’t often just used on their own -- combination formulas help enhance their healing qualities. When combined with andrographis in a product called Kan Jang, Siberian ginseng has been shown to improve the symptoms of the common cold in some patients, if taken within 72 hours after they first start showing symptoms. You can see signs in as few as 2 days, but it usually takes 4-5 days.

Eleuthero can also be combined with other herbs, flowers, fruits, and seeds to create an all-natural fatigue-fighting herbal blend for your body.* Plus, you don’t have to worry about a caffeine crash later on since you’re getting your energy from nature’s own herbs. You can take it twice a day to also help with that dreaded mid-afternoon crash, and it works best when taken in between meals so it doesn’t have to compete with your food to give you the nutrients you need to charge through! 

Need a little extra boost? You can also choose to take a third dose to really power through your daily workout. This can add a great power-fueling bonus to your workout routine, too. Eleuthero can also help increase endurance along with restoring and sustaining energy levels, so you can really give it your all when you need it the most!*

 What to Look Out For 

As with most aspects of life, you can sometimes have too much of a good thing. 

Make sure to follow the daily dosage and frequency recommendations, and check with a medical professional to make sure your herbal supplements won’t interfere with any pre-existing medical conditions or current medications, as there may be contraindications such as for those with high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart conditions.

Additionally, remember that anyone can be allergic to anything, so it’s always best to stop taking supplements if you notice signs of an allergic reaction. Siberian ginseng can have some side effects including nausea, diarrhea, and rash. In especially high dosages, it can cause nervousness and anxiety in some individuals. Moreover, you should not take Eleuthero if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Talk to your medical practitioner about adding herbal supplements like Eleuthero to your daily regimen and see if it’s right for you. This powerful, all-natural herb can boost your energy levels like never before and help you stay focused and energized to make each day the best it can be.*
