Substances contained in ginseng (ginseng phytochemistry)

To fully understand the multilateral effects of ginseng are required three things: knowledge of human physiology, knowledge of active ingredients of ginseng and practical test. In this section, I would like to further concentrate just on the active ingredient ginseng. Hundreds of ingredients found in any plant. Ginseng, however, stands by its management coincidences are contained substances highly effective without being toxic. Moreover, their effects are balanced so that meet the definition of adaptogen . Panaxosidy outside the genus Panax occur .

Among the active ingredients of ginseng can be found:

  • Ginsenosides / panaxosidy (just ginsenosidům / panaxosidům traditionally devotes the most attention)
  • Ginseng polysaccharides and proteoglycans
  • Panaxynol - polyacetylene alcohol
  • Panaxydol - polyacetylene alcohol
  • Panaxytriol - polyacetylene alcohol
  • Gintonin - polyacetylene alcohol glykolipoprotein
  • Prorenin - bioactive peptide
  • EGF - bioactive peptide
  • Galanin - bioactive peptide
  • Renin - bioactive peptide
  • Pancreatic polypeptide (PP) - bioactive peptide
  • Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) - a bioactive peptide
  • Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) - bioactive peptide
  • Maltol - phenolic
  • Fatty acids

In practice, it is also used mixed extracts of ginseng .
