Korean red ginseng reduces fatigue without increasing ‘heatiness’ – Chinese study
Korean Red ginseng (KRG) was able to reduce fatigue in deficiency syndrome patients without rising “heatiness”, according to a study.
KRG is commonly perceived as a “heaty” ingredient among Asia consumers, which could lead to “fire-heat” syndromes such as sore throat, ulcers, and constipation.
Therefore, Chinese researchers embarked on a clinical trial to validate the claims, with results published in the peer-reviewed publication Journal of Ginseng Research.
Spanning over four weeks, the study was supported by grant from the Korean Society of Ginseng and the National Natural Science Foundation of China.
