5 Health Benefits of Ginseng

Ginseng is an antioxidant rich herb that has been used for centuries in Chinese medicine for its endless benefits. Many studies show that it may help with inflammation, immunity, cognitive function, blood sugar control, and so much more!

What is Ginseng?

There are two varieties of ginseng on the market: Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng) and American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius). ProleevaMax uses a very high quality of Panax ginseng in our formula.

What Are 5 Health Benefits of Ginseng?

1. Cognitive Function

Ginseng can also help improve cognitive functions like memory, behavior, and overall mood! Some studies show that ingredients in ginseng, like ginsenosides and compound K, could protect the brain against damage caused by free radicals. In fact, one study showed that in 6,422 older adults, the consistent consumption of ginseng for at least 5 years was correlated with stronger cognitive function later in life!

Young people may also benefit from ginseng and its cognitive enhancement properties. In a trial involving children with ADHD, omega-3 supplements when used with ginseng showed to help overall attention span and memory recall.

2. Reduces Inflammation

Studies have shown that ginseng extracts can prevent inflammation and reduce overall oxidative damage to cells, which can ultimately lead to chronic disease. Plus, by reducing oxidative damage and increasing energy production in cells, Ginseng helps fight fatigue.


Ginseng has so many benefits, it’s hard to list them all! But the third on our top five health benefits relates to its potent anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties.  These properties can greatly enhance the function of the immune system! And who wouldn’t want that in today’s world?

4. Anti-Cancer Properties

In addition to being anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant rich herb, ginseng also has a direct link to cancer fighting properties. Did you know, taking ginseng on a regular basis can lower your cancer risk by 16%? We like the sound of that!

5. Blood Sugar Control

In 2014, there was a study that suggested ginseng may help lower blood sugar and be a natural treatment of diabetes. This is due to some of the components in ginseng, called ginsenosides, that affect insulin production in the pancreas and improve insulin resistance.

Side Effects and Risks

As with any herbal supplement, you should follow the recommended daily dosage on any product label. Although ginseng is generally safe, everyone is different and may experience minor side effects. People have reported the following:

  • headaches
  • sleep problems
  • digestive problems
  • diarrhea
  • skin reaction
  • changes to blood pressure/blood sugar
  • rapid heartbeat

Where can you get Ginseng?

Luckily, this powerfully beneficial herb is very accessible! To get the amazing benefits of ginseng, you can add it as an ingredient in many recipes, take a capsule supplement, drink ginseng tea, or take a ginseng tincture.

So, when we created ProleevaMax we knew we had to include ginseng in our formula for that extra anti-inflammatory and immunity boost! ProleevaMax ensures a healthy level of amino acids in your body, restoring and stimulating neurotransmitters that are used in pain control.

Our nervous systems control how we feel and process pain, so when there’s damage from disease or injury, the tissues in the affected area release chemicals that then communicate with our nerves. These nerve pathways carry messages from the affected area, travel up the spinal cord, and finally to the brain.

Once the pain information reaches the brain, it sends messages back through the pathways to reduce or stop the pain sensations. When you have long-term inflammation, the nerve cells in your brain and spinal cord can change over time and may even last after the cause of the pain has been treated.

Chronic inflammation is crucial to get under control to reduce your risk of lifelong damage. Controlling and eliminating inflammation is key to maintaining a healthy body and mind!

The 5 health benefits of ginseng mentioned above are crucial to help reduce pain from chronic inflammation.

What is ProleevaMax??

Our product was specially formulated to address the underlying dietary and amino acid deficiencies that are commonly associated with chronic pain and inflammatory disorders.

The chemicals in our brain, also known as neurotransmitters, are responsible for how we experience pain. These neurotransmitters are only kept in check by having healthy levels of amino acids but, if your body is deprived, you are more at risk of experiencing pain and inflammation.

Replenish your amino acids to a healthy level, ultimately positively impacting your sleep, mood, and other crucial bodily functions. ProleevaMax replaces the vital amino acids that have been exhausted by inflammation, chronic pain, and fibromyalgia and supplies the nervous system with the fuel it needs!
