Ginsenoside Rb1 Found to Have Neuroprotective Effects
Ginsenosides are compounds unique to ginseng. Research shows that ginsenosides have neuroprotective effects. Ginseng may also be able to protect against chemotherapy-induced cognitive impairment, of which there is no treatment at present. Researchers have found that ginsenoside Rb1 can help restore loss of specialized brain cells, reduce oxidative stress, and reduce inflammation in the brain, thus helping to restore the function of brain cells.
Ginseng, also known as Korean or Asian ginseng, is the root of Panax ginseng Meyer. The benefits of ginseng in traditional oriental medicine have been widely recognized for over a thousand years. The major bioactive components in ginseng are ginsenosides, and their neuroprotective effect on different neurologic diseases has been studied. Numerous studies have proven that ginsenosides can ameliorate learning/memory deficits in different brain diseases and during senescence in humans and animals.

Cognitive functions such as memory and attention tend to decline with age. This decline may also be exacerbated by an unhealthy diet, diseases, and physical injuries. However, research indicates that different foods may have different effects on the brain. A good diet can help improve brain function and protect the brain.
