Ginseng enhances immune cells
Since the ancient times, Ginseng has been used for its health benefits. A research paper published August 2020 found that ginseng can help boost immunity both actively and passively by enhancing the actions of various immune cells, such as macrophages and natural killer cells. Researchers also found that ginseng has antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal effects. Additionally, various ginsenosides can help suppress cancer cells, and long-term use can decrease the incidence of cancer. Ginseng may even help autoimmune diseases due to its immunomodulatory effects.
Traditional medicinal practices have used natural products such as adaptogens to treat inflammatory, autoimmune, neurodegenerative, bacterial, and viral diseases since the early days of civilization. Panax ginseng Myer is a common herb used in East Asian countries for millennia, especially in Korea, China, and Japan. Numerous studies indicate that ginseng can modulate the immune system and thereby prevent diseases. Although the human immune system comprises many different types of cells, multiple studies suggest that each type of immune cell can be controlled or stimulated by ginseng or its derivatives.
