Asian ginseng is native to Asia. It is considered an adaptogen, the natural substance that stimulates the body’s resistance to stressors. Recent studies show that compared to ginseng root, ginseng leaf and stem exhibit a higher content of active compounds such as ginsenosides, polysaccharides, triterpene flavonoids, volatile oil, polyacetylenic alcohols, peptides, amino acids, and fatty acids. Re, Rd, and Rb2 are the major ginsenosides in the ginseng leaf.

Asian ginseng root may be beneficial for cognitive functions, erectile dysfunction, influenza, fatigue, blood sugar, cancer, heart diseases, menopause, female libido, and boosting the immune system.
