PANAXOLYDE®: A better way to boost your gut health
Ginseng scientific genus name (“Panax”) shares the same semantic root of ancient Greek word “Panakeia”, which is the universal remedy Godness name. Ginseng pivotal role in traditional Chinese medicine was, in fact, well-known by Linneus when he named this exceptional Araliaceae family plant member.
Panaxolyde Gut Health
It is recognized that ginseng has significative healthy effects on multiple factors implied in overall well-being such as glycemic control(1), cardiovascular function(2), central-nervous-system protection(3) and immune response (4).
The list of ginseng positive properties has been further enriched considering ginseng action on gut functionality and wellness.
A 2016 murine study(5) shows that ginseng polysaccharides can rescue gut microbiota stress-induced alterations, improving on one hand ginsenosides bio-disponibility and on the other hand helping in restore the correct equilibrium between different intestine bacterial genus. Stress decreases beneficial microorganism variety and quantity (es: reduction of Bacteroides spp. e Lactobacillus spp.): ginseng polysaccharides can, therefore, enhance these positive symbionts growth(5).
Inflammatory chronic conditions predispose the neoplasies formation, especially in the gastrointestinal traits. It has been proved that suppling alimentation with a daily dose of ginseng attenuates chemical-induced colitis and colon carcinogenesis in inflammatory bowel disease mice(6).
