Dear visitor, this is a machine-translated article. It makes perfect sense in its original language (Czech), and is fully backed by independent scientific literature. The translation, though, is far from perfect and takes patience and imagination, if you decide to read it.

Inquiry for the treatment of high pressure

Hello, I have read in the questions (on about the treatment of hypertension. But there is no answer, so I would be glad if you sent me the answer you gave to the lady. My doctor is probably a faithful copy of the doctor's interviewer. I'm also looking for natural products to treat high pressure before swallowing chemical drugs. Unfortunately, I have not been successful yet. Thank you for your early reply. BN

Hello Mrs. N.

I was prompted to ask you to treat hypertension. I get a response somewhat later, for which I apologize.

Hypertension and civilization diseases are at least one of the main domains of adaptogens, especially the model adaptogen, which is the ginseng right . An article on this topic can be found here: Ginseng Causes Extension of Blood and Blood Pressure Reduction .

I've responded to several hypertonic questions on Specifically, hypertension involves questions:

Unfortunately, the web site can not indicate its response (the reasons are listed there).

I hope that, in spite of my delay, my answer will be satisfactory.




Thank you for your email. I bought a manic-ginseng tablet from Natures Bounty in the pharmacy where they say the capsule contains a fresh root extract. One capsule has 250 g. Now that I've read all the information from you, so I feel I've reached the next. Please, can you answer me.

During the search on the Internet, I found information about the Chinese caterpillar and its effect is almost the same as the action of the leskokorka you are writing about. Please, can you answer me. Thanks in advance for the information. I'm glad you did the time for me. Thanks again. BN

Dear Mrs N.!

Pharmaceutical forms like capsules generally have their advantages, but in ginseng capsules, in particular, the key disadvantage is that you can not visually assess what the contents are inside. The use of the capsule also usually involves insufficient dosing of ginseng, where the ginseng leaves the patient with "not acting". This is what I wrote in my Commentary on ginseng products

The 250mg ginseng capsule is totally inadequate

Of course, 250mg of the capsule is totally inadequate, at least a reasonable dose should be taken by the patient at least ten times a day. In the EU, there is also a totally pointless regulation to limit the maximum recommended daily allowance to 2g, which it deserves only to ignore, just like other regulations on the harmfulness of the South American plant, the sage (because it competes with saccharin), the Sacred Pacific Pig (which is a healthier alternative to sleeping pills) etc.

With slices of 6-year-old ginseng TaiwanTCM Liang of I have a personal experience (because I once helped her choose). If this 6-year-old ginseng does not take you, then you will know that ginseng does not handle your problems. If you do not take ginseng capsules, you do not know anything.

Knowing the effect (or ineffectiveness if it does not work) of a true 6-year ginseng will then allow you to independently assess other ginseng products, such as the Korean granulated tea, which you ask in another mail of September 25, which I answer. For ginseng , unlike other adaptogens (such as glossy glossy lenses ), the patient has a chance to judge the strength of the product to a certain extent, but it must start at really high doses to let the patient know what subjectively observable changes he has to expect from ginseng Mainly mental activation and in men also improved erection ).

Comparison of glossy glossy and Chinese caterpillar

With rogue, careless and selling writers, unfortunately, reliable information can not be sought just "on the Internet". The first step is to select reliable authors. Such as Prof. Ing. Pavel Valíček, DrSc. In his just published book, "Mushrooms and their healing effects", the Chinese caterpillar contains a whole range of positive health effects, many of which, just as you are writing, really resemble the effects of glossy glossy, long described in the same book. But this is a popular science book and I, as a scientist, do not have the right to drive it. It is my duty to write conservatively so that physicians, patients and those interested in the preventive and adaptogenic effects of these fungi can safely guide what I write. So my answer to this question will be a bit unkind, but I hope it will still satisfy you:

The Chinese caterpillar is a sponge that is highly valued in TČM . Traditional Chinese medicine is not unscientific and it is therefore unlikely that the Chinese caterpillar would be therapeutically totally worthless. I therefore agree with the inclusion of Chinese caterpillars among medicinal sponges . But I do not have her effects from primary sources, and I can not believe the popular sources.

In glossy gloss, I have definitely been reassured that it has anticancer effects on many types of cancer . Glossy glossy I can and should recommend to the attention of oncologists, oncology patients and people with increased risk of cancer. Other reported effects of glossy glossy luster are not sufficiently studied from primary sources and I can not believe popular sources. However, I would argue that at least some of the (non-oncological) effects of glans will be realistic at least due to the content of effective ganoderic acids. Lesklokorka therefore very likely deserves classification among adaptogens with greater than small efficiency.

Otherwise, I do not mean that I have not read a Chinese caterpillar, I have not read any scientific article about it - I've read a lot of them. But I have no right to trust primary resources, and I need to judge their accuracy and weight. More specifically, I can say that the Chinese caterpillar I have studied in part, but not so that I can shamelessly and with 100% confidence in my conclusions about her healing publicly.
