Ginseng raises blood pressure?

Hi,

I have been researching for some time now about the effects of Ginseng on blood pressure. Many articles say that it raises blood pressure and other articles say that it regulates blood pressure.
I want take a product that gives 600mg of Ginseng complex but scared actually.
Does anyone knows if it really increases blood pressure
Thanks,
Mike

Re: Ginseng raises blood pressure?

Cartner - Ginseng is an adaptagen. It's supposed to work/adapt according to the way your system works. If you feel tired, it's supposed to give you energy. If you are tense, it should calm you. If your blood pressure is too low, it should raise it slightly. If it's high it should have a lowering effect. The main ingredients are Ginsenosides which is the main ingredient and the beneficial healing part of Ginseng. I also take Ginseng. The most studied Ginseng is a product called Ginsana which is Panax Ginseng. I use a product sold by Costco stores called "Triple Energy". It includes a standardized blend of all the Ginsengs, including Chinese, American and Eleuthro (Russian) blend. It's Consumerlab approved (so at least it's safe). I have not noticed any increase in my blood pressure. Do not take higher than normal doses. This can lead to higher blood pressure and nervousness. Ginkgo Biloba is also good for blood pressure, but at higher doses it can cause excessive bleeding.
