A question about diabetes and the origin of Korean ginseng

... I would like to know more about the healing abilities of this (meaning ginseng ) root. I have diabetes and I would appreciate expert advice on how often to apply it and in what form, and whether you have any specific results in the treatment of diabetes. What am I sure of what I ordered is Korean Ginseng? I do not know what the difference is against Chinese and other ??? Thank you in advance for your reply. Marián.

Dear Mr. Marián,

Fairy tale story

Slow salesman Matěj Naponáhlo sold a kilo of sugar on cubes, weighed one after the other and weighed for each cube before the weight stabilized. Mrs. Anna Pustovkova, who was the first in the queue, did not survive, las her 3 dice of sugar from the vendor and ran to complain to the city office. They released him.

In the morning Mrs. Pustovka made tea with one cube of sugar. He was totally overcooked, and nothing was cured from sugar. Eventually, he used the whole city. They were looking for shopkeepers to write a notice, but in vain - salesman Matěj Naponáhlo was in the pantry and a year there he wondered if the clove would keep his cloak when he was hanging it. And he kept it.

So much a fairy tale.

Do you know the story of Ľubomír Feldek "About a Slow Salesman"?

As far as the answer to your question is concerned, I get to it now, two months after receiving it, but not too late - diabetes does not have the habit of leaving, and certainly still keeps you guided. You can only fight against its further progression and complications.

Herbs with antidiabetic effect are a lot.

On my own, I would recommend the following three:

Blueberry leaves contain glucoconjugates (acting similarly to insulin) and have other significant effects; they are a world champion in antiviral substances. They should not be enjoyed all the time - you have to do so for two weeks breaks, which is said to be a substance that can damage the long-term use. Momordicu, on the other hand, can be used daily. I Momordica contains glucokinetics. From the days when I studied it, I remember that otherwise it is amazingly healthy (I just do not know why exactly). Once I read it again, I publish it on the page.

On a foreign fist (more precisely on Dr. Duke 's fist), I would add to the overdose of anti-diabetic herbs: bay leaf, cinnamon, cloves, turmeric, fennel Greek hay, high quality soybeans, garlic, raw onion. Zn .: Do not underestimate.

So to get the ginseng in diabetes ...

... or the best in the end. You definitely do not get bored with diabetes ginseng. It's not a question of whether it's good, but for what price and in what quality you get it. Whether you buy it anywhere, I would recommend you ginseng red for diabetes because it is more yang and better on blood vessels (I have forgotten details). In the first line, ginseng contains gluco-kinetics, reducing pancreatic overload and diabetes. In addition, ginseng suppresses inflammations and autoimmune reactions , which are responsible for the destruction of Langerhans cells and various complications of diabetes. Ginseng is comprehensively struggling against metabolic syndrome including hypertension (but that does not mean that you are exonerated from your duty to continue fighting with diet). In addition, ginseng improves wound healing and promotes vascular regeneration , which works against ischemic complications of diabetes, such as venous ulcers.

Dosage of ginseng

Ginseng should eat or drink daily for 2 to 8 grams of dried red root ( ginseng radix rubra ), preferably 6 years, the exact dose depends on your individual feelings. The effect of ginseng can be evaluated also subjectively (as opposed to glossy glass ), you only have to wait a few hours or days. The dosing method and recipes are summarized on a special page. Capsule or pill ginseng preparations are also helpful, but due to low volumes of active ingredients, they are unsuitable . Beware of swapping with eleutherococcus , which vendors purposely issue as ginseng ( Siberian ginseng, eleutheroginseng , etc.). Even eleutherocok is an adaptogen, but its effects are different.

Specific experience with diabetes treatment

Specific experience with the treatment of illness that lasts for the rest of the patient's life is hard to get and I do not have it myself. But there are others - there are several systematic reviews of antidiabetic herbs testing on animals and humans, of which ginseng and M. charantia come out very positively (eg hui2009hht or yeh2003srh , both freely accessible here and here , the first one also sends you by mail).

How sure are you that what you ordered is Korean Ginseng?

None if you do not have chemical analytical methods available to you. Every salesperson can make his customers happy. Just get the empty Korean Ginseng Boxes, which is a huge quantity here in Taiwan, and fill them with the cheapest ginseng - a gentleman who sells for less than 1Kc per gram. And to add all the necessary documents and certificates to those empty boxes ...

You can, of course, order Korean Ginseng directly from KGC , but they can do the same. And if you think that for a big corporation it's a bigger problem to kidnap you than to me, then you're mistaken. Recent Korean production is not enough for Korean ginseng and so most of the "Korean ginseng" is actually grown in China. I do not want to say that the KGC is reassuring someone, I should have sinned - KGC has done more than any other company on the globe to popularize ginseng - I just want to say that buying herbs and especially ginseng is a matter of trust. If you do not trust someone, you can not buy it.

And that's how we get to your last question:

What is the difference between Korean, Chinese and other ginseng?

This is again a simple question requiring a lengthy response. Fortunately, I have already done most of this difficult work on the page " what is known as ginseng ", so here remains the question of the Korean counterpart of Chinese ginseng.

In short, a smaller portion of "Korean Ginseng" is grown directly in South and North Korea, with a larger portion (about 70%) grown in Manchuria under Korean supervision. Both are marketed under the Korea Insam ™ brand, which was recently registered by the Korean Ministry of Agriculture. The reason was that over time all korean ginseng began using almost all Chinese vendors on the pretext that it is actually the English generic name of the Panax ginseng, and there is nobody to judge or punish this - a binding system exists only in Latin names .
