Efficacies of Red Ginseng

The 6 Main Efficacies of Red Ginseng Certified by MFDS

The biologically-active saponins from ginseng and red ginseng are called ginsenosides, a combination of the words‘ginseng' and‘glycoside’. Ginsenosides have a special chemical structure and effectiveness that sets them apart from other saponins.

Ginsenosides have both calming and stimulating effects, and are effective in promoting the circulatory system and preventing hypertension and hardening of the arteries. Ginsenosides have also been shown to support the production of blood cells and platelets, control blood sugar, protect the liver, support the endocrine system, and promote sexual and reproductive health.
The antioxidant activity of red ginseng suppresses LDL cholesterol and lowers the cholesterol level.


Improve the Immune System

Effective against bronchial diseases, tuberculosis, atopy, herpes zoster, hair loss, cold, otitis, rhinitis, cancer.

Ginsenoside enhances the immune system by promoting the proliferation and activity of immune cells called “T cells.”

Acidic polysaccharides activate macrophages and induce the synthesis of nitric oxides, which kill not only various viruses and bacteria, but also cancer cells, thereby strengthening the immune system. [Professor Cho Jae-yeol’s research team, Sungkyunkwan University]


Promote Relief of Fatigue

Recovery from chronic fatigue, restoration of energy, and enhancement of stamina and sexual functions.

Red ginseng inhibits cortisol, a hormone that causes physical fatigue, disrupts metabolism and induces aging, and helps the body recover from fatigue.

Red ginseng, which has long been a representative medicinal herb with "Daebowongi" (which means powerful protection of the body’s energy) effects, helps restore the body’s energy and strengthens its vitality.


Improve Blood Flow

Effective against anemia, diabetes, hypertension, cold hands and feet, obesity, arteriosclerosis, angina pectoris, myocardial infarction.

Red ginseng can help with hypertension by lowering the level of arterial stiffness and improving arteriosclerosis.

Red ginseng facilitates metabolic activity, thereby improving blood flow.


Activate Antioxidant Effect

Skin care (whitening and improvement of melasma and wrinkles), suppression of LDL cholesterol, anti-aging, sexual maturity, gout, hyperlipidemia, angina pectoris, myocardial infarction.

The Takdokhapchang (which means treatment of abscess by discharging toxins) effects of red ginseng help prevent the oxidation of the body through detoxification.

It prevents hypertension, arteriosclerosis, myocardial infarction and other diseases caused by oxidized cholesterol.


Improve Memory

Effective against dementia, enhancement of learning ability and cognitive skills.

The ginsenosides of red ginseng inhibit and destroy beta amyloid, a substance that causes dementia, which kills the neurons in the brain, thereby preventing the progression of dementia and restoring memory. [Professor Park Jeong-il’s team, Seoul National University College of Pharmacy]


Alleviate Menopausal Symptoms

Helps relieve facial flushing, sweating, insomnia, depression, and vascular diseases after menopause as well as menopausal symptoms.

Red ginseng alleviates the symptoms of menopause that result from a decrease in estrogen in women after the age of 45.
