Causes a gush of heart pounding?

Is it possible that after using a young ginseng (lemon of about 5 grams) at 10 am, do I feel unusual heart pounding at 20 o'clock? Can it cause ginseng, or is it another problem?
Thank you, John.

Hello Mrs. Jano,
It is not easy for me to answer your question. "Heartbeat" is a broad concept - without a detailed description of the situation, I can only comment on the effects of ginseng, but not on your particular case.

Briefly, ginseng can enlarge blood vessels, reduce blood pressure , reduce blood clotting, and have overall beneficial effects on the heart and the vascular system . In a more detailed view, however, this is not entirely true because ginseng as an adaptogen actually has no effects on a healthy organism. He does not actually reduce blood pressure - it only makes it easier for the body to reduce it if the body itself decides to reduce it. So, if you are completely healthy and without any stressful situations, the effect of ginseng should not be too observable. If you suffer from almost any cardiovascular disease ( hypertension , atherosclerosis , chronic venous insufficiency - varicose veins or hemorrhoids ), ginseng can only improve your condition .

I do not know exactly what your "heartbeat" means. Either it's really high cardiac activity, or it's something else, like inflammation or swelling . For example, when my tooth hurts, it "buzzes my heart". When my head hurts , my heart pounds at my back. When I have a fever, it also "buzzes my heart". Another occasion in which I personally feel "heart pounding" is (exceptionally) when I stand up after a long session and I'm in danger of low pressure fainting. This may be your case - ginseng may have lowered your blood pressure to a lower level than your body used to, and the heart is trying to compensate for increased activity. However, since I do not know the details of your case, I can not judge it. This must be done by a doctor who only has a right to therapeutic error in our society. Ginseng is definitely not something that would irritate or overload the heart, rather the opposite. Try to think if you suffer from any illness or if you do not take any other medicines that could affect your cardiovascular system. With regular, long-term low-dose use, young ginseng should develop its range of effects that will ultimately improve the regeneration and overall condition not only of your cardiovascular system but also of the entire organism.


Thank you for the comprehensive answer. I took a break and I try again. I feel the heartbeat in the chest. I think I experienced a similar situation after visiting 3 fast-food cafes where I always ordered coffee. I do not take medication, I probably do not know (almost except). At age 34, I would not like to see a vascular disease.

I have gotten to the ginseng on your site because I want to deal with the "lazy bowel" and the associated problems with constipation . I have a friend from whom I received tea (probably for slimming) for this purpose, which is not sold in the Czech Republic. It's called Ginseng Slim Special. I read that it contains 80% black tea and 20% ginseng (I translated it as ginseng). So I thought it would be amateur to gut at home. When I read your site, it did not come to me that such a link could work just against constipation. The original really fulfilled the purpose. The home copy has proven to be a detonator. I'm going to test it again, I'm watching the clock, it's high time

Dear Mrs Jano,

Thank you for the additional information. It does not give me a few more sentences. If your heart pounds for coffee, then know that black tea contains more caffeine than coffee itself. Even though you may know, you probably do not know that caffeine is much bigger than what it's generally believed to be (you know Dr Coffey ?). This is my unfinished article about or, rather, about caffeine: Does coffee break my health?

With caffeine, you can help with intestinal motility only in the short term, and you will get worse in the long run - because caffeine receptors are adapting in a few days, caffeine stops working, but we can not put it off - otherwise our problems will return temporarily much more intensely. Caffeine makes stomach acidic problems - it first re-acidifies, causing digestive problems due to lack of acidity in the cessation phase.

Ginseng behaves as an adaptogen due to intestinal motility. On the one hand, it increases the intestinal motility, on the other hand it suppresses the irritation of the digestive tract . Try the ginseng instead of black tea as a cicicum - in Israel, cicicas have recently been researched to improve intestinal motility (probably because they belong to the family of molasses) and the results were positive.

Caffeine does not help in weight loss, for the same reasons: weight loss is a long-term effort and caffeine helps only in the short term, it damages for a long time. It is a great pity that caffeine is spreading so much as a weight loss product. Ginseng is not an anorectic, but it supports the effort and the will of the obese to lose weight .
