Why Do Athletes Use It?*

Some athletes say that Asian ginseng helps reduce fatigue.

What Do the Advocates Say?*

Extensive but often poorly designed studies have been conducted on the use of Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng) to improve athletic performance.1, 2 While some early controlled studies suggested there might be benefits, several recent double-blind trials have found no significant effects of Asian ginseng on endurance exercise.3, 4, 5

Historically, it has been used to help people who are fatigued feel less lethargic. The energizing effects of Asian ginseng only last while it is in your system. If you are consistently feeling tired, itís best to pinpoint the reason for your fatigue.

*Athletes and fitness advocates may claim benefits for this supplement based on their personal or professional experience. These are individual opinions and testimonials that may or may not be supported by controlled clinical studies or published scientific articles.
