Causes a gush of heart pounding?

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

Good afternoon 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 overlooked. If you have 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 "heart pounding" 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" in it. 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 faintness from low pressure. 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 the right to a 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 medications that could affect your cardiovascular system. In the regular, long-term use of low doses , 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 whole organism.


Thank you for the comprehensive answer. I took a break and ginseng 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'm probably almost (albeit exceptionally) healthy. 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 solve the "lazy gut" and its associated problems with constipation . I have a friend from whom I received tea (probably for weight loss) 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 was going to be amateurish at home. When I read your site, it did not come to me that such a link could work just against the constipation. The original really fulfilled the purpose. Domestic copies have proven to be a detonator. I'm going to test it again, I'm looking at the clock, it's high time

Dear Mrs Jano,

thank you for the additional information. Do 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 is generally believed to be (you know, Dr. Coffey ?). This is my unfinished article about or, rather, about caffeine: Does coffee ruin my health?

Caffeine can help you 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 drop it - otherwise our problems will temporarily return with much greater intensity. Caffeine makes stomach acidic problems - it first re-acidifies, causing gastrointestinal problems due to lack of acidity in the withdrawal phase.

Ginseng behaves as an adaptogen due to intestinal motility. On the one hand, it increases intestinal motility, on the other hand it dampens the irritation of the digestive tract . Try cicicum instead of black tea instead of black tea - in Israel, cicicas have recently been researched to improve intestinal motility (probably because it belongs 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 short-term, long-term harm. It is a great pity that caffeine is so much spread out as a weight loss product. Ginseng is not an anorectic, but it promotes the effort and the will of the obese to lose weight .
