Phytochemicals and Constituents of Siberian Ginseng.
Active constituents: The constituents in eleuthero that have received the most attention are the eleutherosides.
The active constituents in eleuthero are known as eleutherosides. The eleutherosides are actually a diverse group of quite different compounds and include:
Lignans : Eleutherosides D and E (syringaresinols) and B4 (sesamin)
Phenylpropane derivatives including Eleutheroside B (syringin), caffeic acid and chlorogenic acid
Coumarins including Eleutheroside B1 and Isofraxidin.
Sterins including Eleutheroside A (daucosterin).
Eleuthero contains phenolics, polysaccharides, and eleutherosides A-G, the total content ranging between 0.6~0.9%. Eleutherosides B, B1, and E are representative of three classes of compounds collectively called eleutherosides. Other constituents include phenylpropanoids, lignans, coumarins, polysaccharides, and sugars. A review of the chemistry of eleuthero with 29 chemical structures has been published.
1.Seven primary eleutherosides have been identified, with most of the research attention focusing on eleutherosides B and E
2.Eleuthero also contains complex polysaccharides (a kind of sugar molecule).
3.These constituents play a critical role in eleuthero ability to support immune function. :Glycosides (Eleutherosides), resins, anthocyanin, pectin
Pharmacology of Siberian Ginseng
The eleutherosides have been shown to be responsible for the adaptogenic properties of the plant.
The eleutherosides are a range of glycosides with aromatic alcohol aglycones (Ginsenosides have triterpenoid aglycones).
The glycosides appear to act on the adrenal glands, helping to prevent adrenal hypertrophy and excess corticosteroid production in response to stress.
The eleutherosides additionally help reduce the exhaustion phase of the stress response and return the adrenals to normal function faster.
Bio-Enhancing Agents :Ginkgo biloba
Two step repercolation at low temperature, made with different ethanol/water ratios and with pH stabilization to prevent hydrolysis of the eleutherosides. Evaporation at low temperature and low pressure.
Can Siberian ginseng improve my sex life?
Siberian ginseng is one of the most important tonic herbs used in Chinese sexual therapy. Balance is the goal of TCM and through the use of ginseng with an appropriate yin tonic the best effects can be achieved.
Siberian ginseng works to stimulate the production of sex-related hormones, to balance and enhance the central nervous system and to help increase our response to stimulation.

Siberian ginseng Interactions:
Adverse effects with concurrent use of oral anti-diabetic drugs, such as Warfarin, heparin, aspirin, and NSAIDS
Siberian ginseng for Memory aid:
Ginkgo biloba and Siberian ginseng together improve memory
It has been found that a combination of Ginkgo biloba and Siberian ginseng may improve memory in healthy middle-aged adults.
256 healthy men and women aged between 38 and 66 were divided into three groups and administered one of the following standardised doses: 60mg of ginkgo and 100mg of ginseng extract twice daily; 120mg of ginkgo and 200mg of ginseng; or a placebo daily for 14 weeks.
Enhancing resilience:Siberian ginseng is given to improve mental resilience, for example, during exams, and to reduce the effects of physical stress, for example during athletic training.
Exhaustion remedy:Siberian ginseng is most effective in the treatment of prolonged exhaustion and debility, resulting from overwork and long-term stress. The herb also stimulates immune resistance and can be taken in convalescence to aid recovery from chronic illness. As a general tonic, Siberian ginseng helps both to prevent infection and to maintain well-being. Siberian ginseng is also used in treatments for impotence.
Eleuthero Root has been used to promote an overall sense of well-being. Herbalists call this herb an "adaptogen", which means that it helps the body adapt to any situation which normally would alter its function. The eleutherosides have been shown to be responsible for the adaptogenic properties of the plant. The eleutherosides are a range of glycosides with aromatic alcohol aglycones. The glycosides appear to act on the adrenal glands, helping to prevent adrenal hypertrophy and excess corticosteroid production in response to stress. The eleutherosides additionally help reduce the exhaustion phase of the stress response, and return the adrenals to normal function faster. As a result, Eleuthero Root has a beneficial effect on the heart and circulation. It has been shown to increase energy and stamina, and to help the body resist viral infections, environmental toxins, radiation, and chemotherapy.
