Muscle Boosting Benefits with Ginseng

Muscle Boosting Benefits with Ginseng


Are you looking to build strength and lean muscle mass? If you are, then you probably already know the importance of eating foods rich in protein, training regularly, drinking plenty of water, and getting sufficient sleep. Sometimes, even with all that, you may still find you still aren’t building the muscle mass you’d like. An important part of the process that many beginners and seasoned athletes alike tend to overlook is adding a quality, safe anabolic supplement to their diet.

What Are Anabolic Supplements?

Anabolism is the process of using simple substances to build up and create more complex materials of living tissue. In the case of muscle building, it is the taking of amino acids to make protein that builds up muscles. Similar to anabolic steroids (but without all the harmful side effects and addiction), natural anabolic supplements will help amplify protein synthesis in the muscle by encouraging nitrogen retention in the muscle—the more nitrogen the muscle can hold, the higher the amount of protein the muscle will be able to store. Anabolic supplements also prevent catabolism (the breakdown of tissue) by decreasing cortisol—a hormone responsible for tearing down muscle. With less cortisol, you will be able to build muscle mass instead of your body breaking it down to use it for fuel.   

Where Can I Find Them?

Have you been to a nutrition store lately? Finding the right supplements can be a daunting task. Take a stroll through any health and sports nutrition store and you will see tons of products geared toward enhancing your athletic performance. But how do you know which anabolic supplements are the most likely to complement all your hard work and give you the advantage you have been searching for? If you are on the hunt for that “magic bullet,” Panax ginseng has the testosterone boosting abilities that can help you build lean muscle and restore your body after a hard workout.  

How Does Panax Ginseng Work?  

Panax ginseng is one of the most popular herbal dietary supplements worldwide and has been shown to increase muscle efficiency and aerobic capacity. Ginsenosides—the active ingredients in Panax ginseng—perform similarly to anabolic steroids, preventing adrenal overstimulation and excess corticosteroid production.  

Bing Han Panax Ginseng

Bing Han grows its own Panax ginseng so that it is very similar to the wild ginseng that was prized by rulers of ancient time. The preparation process of Bing Han’s ginseng makes it safe to be used for long periods of time, making it the ideal natural alternative to anabolic steroids for athletes of all levels.
