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.

Ginseng is particularly suitable for drivers

Have a nice day. I am 41 years old and work as a truck driver. At the last checkout, my surgeon had a pressure of 140/90 and told me to take Hipres 0.5g once a day. Since I've been healthy for all my life and never used any medication, I'd rather stop using chemistry and choose a more natural treatment by the very recommended six-year-old female-female root. I ordered the first 60g today and I expect it to help me with long-term use. I do not think my pressure is as high as some people have links to your site. I will use the tea according to the instructions and I will inform you of the effects. Otherwise, I would like to say that your site is very popular and educational. Have a nice day. With Regards Libor

Nice days for you, Mr Libor,

Thank you for your appreciation, I am very pleased. To your problem:

I hope your doctor has excluded her secondary secondary hypertension caused by other serious illnesses (kidney, thyroid, endocrine system ...). However, primary hypertension should not be underestimated as "beginning" - it is rather the final phase of creeping progressive arteriosclerosis, or rarely, something else.

Driving a truck is a major burden for the living

Somebody should write a separate life book only for truck drivers - it's a very specific lifestyle that can not be applied to the usual eating principles, the day and night cycle, etc. I have already written about the inner clocks that guide sleepiness and awakening . Regular sleep and wakefulness is hard to keep in your job. Perhaps your only advantage is that you have some peace of mind sometimes in the cabin - annoyance of hypertension is not beneficial.

Phytochemistry is also a chemistry, only well-educated

It is not quite right to distinguish between natural healing and chemistry. Nature is just chemistry - but the type we are used to in the forest. Among the thousands of medicinal phytochemicals are those that really fit for the treatment of hypertension . The process of their search, called bioprospecting, is far from complete. Paracelsus's pharmacotherapy has been successful in the field of direct and short-acting chemicals (low-dose poisons, antibiotics , etc.). Traditional Chinese Medicine ( TČM) has the most outstanding traditional phytochemicals and natural adapogenics.

Ginseng can also be taken with amlodipine

Hipres (amlodipine) hardens the vascular expansion. It protects against the direct threat of stroke, but it has side effects. Ginseng has a chance to help with high blood pressure and against arteriosclerosis . Its interaction with amlodipine is minimal ( Ryu2014npi ), so you can take both medicines at the same time. However, the use of these drugs must in any case be carried out by a doctor, my answer is only indicative.


As a driver, you will also appreciate the effect of ginseng on fatigue and on improving mental concentration . This effect may be slower (even in days) but is a welcome addition to other stimulants (mainly caffeine). Unlike caffeine, ginseng does not cause the opposite effect (drowsiness) when it is discharged. Caffeine is a small molecule that is poisonous for many animals, including pets. One can tolerate caffeine because of its tropical past. Caffeine mimics the nucleotide adenosine, binds to adenosine receptors and thus produces a number of effects: increased alertness, intestinal motility, blood pressure, stomach acidity, diuresis (urination) and reduced hunger. However, the body responds to abnormal irritation after several days by reducing the number of receptors, so that the effect of caffeine will decrease or disappear after that time. But if we take it off, it is followed by a period of drowsiness, reduced intestinal motility, hypotension, gastric acid deficiency, retention of water in the body (internal swelling) and an increased sense of hunger. In other words, if we do not have a weekend to overcome these negative symptoms, we must continue to use caffeine, although this benefit over the normal state of affairs. Therefore, the caffeine potential for weight loss is very limited. It is, however, undisputed that caffeine is a powerful and effective stimulant, which can therefore be beneficial when used properly. I do not know exactly how to use caffeine in order to be beneficial, but I know that I am a caffeine (I can not help to caffeine) and I also love the taste of coffee.
