The most potent ginsener in the world?
That’s the question being asked by the world’s largest medical supply chain.
The world’s leading consumer-focused trade group for ginseners and other natural products is asking consumers to weigh in on which ginsenoids are the “most potent.”
The Association of American Medical Colleges, or AMA, says ginsens have a “significant” role to play in the health of our bodies.
“Ginsenos have been used for hundreds of years as food additives and in cosmetics, medicines and food,” AMA president Dr. Thomas A. McNeil said in a statement.
“Many of them are used for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases and cancer.
And some are also effective in treating arthritis and other conditions, such as asthma and allergies.”
Our research shows that the most potent compounds are the ones found in ginsened foods, which can be found in processed foods such as bread, pizza and pasta.
And these are compounds that are known to be able to bind to receptors on the surface of our skin, which are important for the absorption of the essential fatty acids found in foods and cosmetics.
“Ginseng, which is commonly called “the god of health,” is a common ingredient in traditional Chinese medicine, and it’s also used in gourmet cooking and as an aphrodisiac.
It’s commonly used as an herbal remedy for the common cold and fever.
Ginsens are known for their ability to bind tightly to receptors in the skin, and the AMA says some ginsenes can even inhibit certain cell-based immune systems.
But McNeil says there are several studies showing the ginsene receptors can also inhibit the growth of cancer cells.”
We know that the compounds in gensenos are involved in the growth and development of tumors, and there are indications that they may be involved in cancer,” McNeil told ABC News.”
And so, there are some really good reasons to believe that ginsening is the most effective anti-cancer agent that we know of.
