Before Siberian eleuthero began to grow in popularity, it was used for a number of important healing purposes in its native regions in Asia.
Some of these were:
- Immune boosting
- Stress and depression-relieving
- Healing the body from stress burnout
- Heart disease treatment
- Antimicrobial (kills bacteria, viruses, fungi)
- Sleep disorders
- Mental conditions (such as anxiety)
What is eleuthero used for?
People use the root of the plant to make medicine. Siberian ginseng is often called an “adaptogen.” This is a non-medical term used to describe substances that can supposedly strengthen the body and increase general resistance to daily stress.
Eleuthero, formerly known as Siberian ginseng, is particularly effective for athletes and can boost energy, sharpen mental concentration and help improve strength and stamina.
Not something you's use everyday, but really nice to add to your Nootropics stack here and there.
