Here are described the effects attributed directly to red ginseng ( ginseng radix rubra ) or extract from it. There are more than a thousand such messages; this page contains only a very small percentage of them.
- Improved liver regeneration after 40% of the experimental resection (in mixed race dogs). The control and doses of red ginseng 250 mg / kg, respectively, were compared. 500 mg / kg per day orally on days -1 to 7 due to surgery. Administration of red ginseng has increased the rate of liver regeneration compared to control by about 25%, which was statistically significant at the level of P = 0.05 due to the total number of 15 animals. There was no difference between 250 mg / kg and 500 mg / kg. Red ginseng also had a cytoprotective effect in histological observation of regenerating liver. ( Kwon2003ekr ) [ cytoprotective , other]
- In a clinical study, red ginseng significantly improved healing of other untretable ulcers in diabetes and progeria (Werner syndrome). ( Morisaki1995mae ) [ diabetes, other ]
- Red ginseng, respectively. Its total saponin extract significantly accelerated capillary regeneration ( in-vitro gel tubes) from the human umbilical vein endothelium. Compared to control, the concentration of total saponin extract of red ginseng 1 μg / ml accelerated capillary growth by about 20%, a concentration of 10 μg / ml by about 100%, and a concentration of 100 μg / ml by more than 300%. The total red ginseng saponins increased secretion of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and decreased the level of plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI). Overall, red ginseng saponin increased only slightly the proliferation of endothelial cells, but increased the rate of their migration in proportion to the dose, at a dose of 100μg / ml to 3x, thus similar to the effect of fibroblast growth factor (FGF). Overall, red ginseng saponin further significantly improved healing of skin lesions in diabetic rats - increased mechanical strength of joint and frequency of newly formed capillaries in healing tissue.
