(Panax quinquefolius, L.)

American Ginseng is a perennial herb native to the deciduous forests of the eastern United States. American Ginseng matures through 5 years of life cycle before being harvested for therapeutic use. Known as a major adaptogen (herb that assists the body in adapting to change and stress) it has shown to be an effective treatment for reducing the duration of common colds and many other conditions related to immunity, memory, cognition, fatigue, metabolism, and cancer.

Modern antidepressants work on monoamine (MAOI) neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine. American Ginseng works on the same neurotransmitters, but with a more natural increase and potential longer-lasting effect without the undesirable side effects. MAOI neurotransmitters are responsible for controlling a variety of different neurological processes ranging from sleep regulation to memory formation and recall. Antidepressants bring side effects that interrupt these natural cycles. The use of American Ginseng could help restore these natural cycles via support of organic exchange between neurotransmitters.

These neurotransmitters play great roles in metabolism, energy, and overall sense of well-being that impacts our daily lifestyle choices. American Ginseng has shown positive promise as an aid for metabolic disorders, prevalent in our society, such as Type II Diabetes. Its constituents (known as ginsenocides) have been recognized for anti-inflammatory properties, and showed positive effects for reducing tumor activity as well as restoring natural energy in recovering cancer patients suffering from fatigue.

American Ginseng is found in Cymbiotika’s Golden Mind: Advanced Brain Nutrients formula specifically for its ability to increase key neurotransmitters serotonin, GABA, dopamine, and norepinephrine. Increasing these neurotransmitters contributes to many biological processes including memory formation, recall, and higher cognitive function. Our unique micelle delivery system makes these ingredients the most bioavailable on the market. Golden Mind is the gold standard of nootropic brain formulas intended for optimum mental performance, cognitive protection, and enhanced communication between the gut and central nervous system.
