Ginseng: natural ingredient of Wonderup

History and curiosity about Ginseng (continued ...)

Applications in the traditional Chinese medicine includes the treatment of general fatigue, chronic fatigue, lack of appetite, anemia, nervousness, amnesias, thirst and impotence.

Ginseng has an ancient history and as such has accumulated a lot of folklore about its actions and its uses. The name Panax is derived from the Latin word panacea that means "cure all". Many of the assertions that surround it are, unfortunately, exaggerated but it is clear that it is a very important remedy.

Recent scientific research is investigating the presumed anti-cancer properties of ginseng, which is thought to be particularly effective for women in preventing breast cancer, thanks to its high content of isoflavones.

Soy and ginseng may reduce the risk of cancer

San Antonio - Tofu and other soy foods, possibly even the herb ginseng may help women avoid cancer, according to preliminary research presented at the annual meeting of the American Osteopathic Association.
In a laboratory study of human breast cancer cells, high doses of isoflavones (dietary components found in soy-based foods) have blocking the growth of cancer cells by up to 30%, show Shanies Donna Dixon, Ph.D., an assistant professor of biochemistry and genetics at the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine in Old Westbury, N.Y.

In a second laboratory study, Dr. Shanies found that some traditional Chinese remedies such as ginseng inhibited the growth of human tumor cells of breast cancer.
Because they are loaded with phytoestrogens, isoflavones may help prevent breast cancer by reducing levels of natural estrogen in the body, she explained, and isoflavones may also have antioxidant properties that inhibit the growth of tumors.

“Phytoestrogens in the future could be promising agents used to reduce the risk of breast cancer and other hormone-dependent cancers such as prostate cancer”, said Dr. Shanies.
Although there are no recommendations on how individuals should include soy in the diet, the doctor says, “it would be prudent for women to try to eat more soy products”.

Dr. Shanies and colleagues tested the effects of three major isoflavones (biochanin A, daidzein and genistein) on cells of human breast cancers.
They also measured the effects of ginseng, hops flower and other Chinese plants on breast cancer cells. Calling the new research “a promising first step”, Richard J. Cenedella, Ph.D., chairman of the department of biochemistry at Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, MO., Said the findings add a new dimension to what is known about the link between diet and breast cancer. “We have always known that there are beneficial effects of a diet low in fat on breast cancer risk and concentrations of vegetable hormones in certain foods may play a role in reducing risk”, said Dr. Cenedella (D.M.).
