AMERICAN GINSENG (CEREBOOST™) benefits

KEY BENEFITS OF PANAX QUINQUEFOLIUS

    • Supports cognitive function and performance
    • Promotes calmness
    • Enhances working memory and alertness

ABOUT PANAX QUINQUEFOLIUS

American ginseng is the common name for Panax quinquefolius, which is native to forested regions of North America.

 

In many ways, it shares many characteristics with Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng). As ginsenosides, both American and Asian ginsengs contain similar active ingredients.

 

As a result of ginsenosides, ginseng is thought to have adaptogenic qualities (i.e., support of fatigue and stress) and health-promoting properties. While there are many types of ginsenosides, the best known include Rb1, Rb2, Rg1, Rc, Rd, and Re.

 

Cereboost™ is an American ginseng root extract clinically studied and standardized. Cereboost™ has been shown to improve working memory and alertness in humans while promoting calmness.
