Kick Start Your Cognitive Health This School Year with Panax Ginseng


The back to school season is here, bringing with it many great learning opportunities for students and teachers alike. For others not in school, there is still a sense of getting back to business with work. For both school and work, keeping your mind sharp and flexing your mental agility is key. If you have ever had a difficult time trying to focus, however, you know first-hand how enormously frustrating it can be to complete a task. 


Is There A Natural Remedy To Help Improve Brain Function? 

To keep you on top of your mental game, Panax Ginseng can give you the brain-boosting charge you’ll need at work, home, or school. Whether you suffer from the occasional memory blip or a more serious cognitive affliction, this natural remedy can help improve your concentration, giving you the edge you’ll need to stay productive.   


What is Ginseng? 

Did you know that ginseng is one of the most popular herbal medicines in the world? Used for centuries in Asia and North America, ginseng is use by millions of people worldwide today for its many health benefits. This remarkable root has been shown to improve physical endurance, boost the immune system, fight infections, help men with erectile dysfunction, and treat anxiety and depression. 


Can Ginseng Really Improve Cognitive Performance?  

Among its many well-documented health benefits, ginseng is also used to stimulate brain function. Some small studies have shown that healthy adults with no psychiatric or cognitive deficits taking Panax ginseng root for as little as two weeks had improved cognitive function. 

A study done at the Department of Neurology at the Clinical Research Institute in South Korea demonstrated the effectiveness of ginseng on the cognitive performance of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease. Taking Panax ginseng for twelve weeks improved thinking, concentration, and memory, as well as eased the mental fatigue that is linked with intense cognitive processing.

The improvement in cognitive function may be due to its ability to decrease fatigue, improve blood sugar stabilization, and/or support healthy blood circulation. No matter the mechanism, Bing Han’s Panax ginseng may be your solution to helping you make the most of your brain power.
