Big things come in small packages. Introducing the first of our 'Meet the Ginsengs' single shot elixir series, Siberian Ginseng aka Eleuthero Root extract for a potent pick me upper!
*Fun fact... When America sent its astronauts to the space station, they were sent with amphetamines to boost energy & performance. The Soviets sent their cosmonauts with Siberian Ginseng*
Siberian ginseng, or eleuthero root is not a true ginseng due to its make up however, research has proven it to have similar properties. In Russia the herb is widely used as an adaptogen which is a substance believed to help the body deal with mental or physical stress. The main active compounds in this herb are eleutherosides B & E and isofraxidine opposed to ginsengs active compound, ginsenosides; also known as ginseng saponins.
We will leave all the fancy talk to our dedicated C.M.H here at Mossy Situation LLC and get to the good stuff! Our one to 2 shot a day 15cc elixir is a potent yet sweet boost of organic, chemical free Siberian Ginseng herb that may act as a mild stimulant increasing energy and enhancing stamina. Eleuthero root provides a gentler boost than its ginseng counterparts making it more appealing to non-pregnant/breastfeeding women.
Besides providing people with much needed sustained energy, this important plant ally used in Chinese Traditional Medicine for thousands of years has many other potential properties. Siberian Ginseng is thought to improve athletic performance as well as increase muscle strength.
Siberian Ginseng may also assist in enhanced mental concentration which could be essential for learning and memory retention. The herb is also thought to increase male and female fertility, treat low testosterone in men and relieve menopause symptoms in women. May also help ease symptoms associated with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, anxiety and depression.
Eleuthero root could also improve the immune system which results in a stronger resistance to cold and flu, benefit the respiratory system as a tonic or strengthener and help the liver remove toxins. Siberian Ginseng is instrumental in boosting overall health and with a doctor's approval, should become a part of one's daily routine. As I always say, if you follow then you know what's next. Too much of even a good thing could be harmful so, it is recommended to take Siberian Ginseng for no longer than 90 days with a 2-to-3-week rest period.
We recommend our 15cc (.5oz) shots to be taken one to two times daily and not with other caffeine products such as coffee, tea or any other supplement. It should not be taken after 6pm so that sleep will not be interrupted. We do use grain alcohol to extract out herbs for our elixirs to get a more well-rounded, potent end product.
At the end of the extraction process, alcohol is not overpowering or even able to get one drunk since only a tiny amount is consumed. Plant material, water and honey are added ingredients which further dilute the alcohol content rendering it as an important solvent and preservative. It is comparable to the process used in making vanilla extracts however, our product is even further diluted to an elixir standard rather than extract. This potent, yet sweet and palpable representation of Siberian Ginseng and its electric healing power is a must try by Mossy Situation LLC.
Please remember that we are an Herb Store/Apothecary and not medical professionals. Always seek a doctor's approval before using this or any other supplement due to any contradictions with current medication. Do not use any of our supplements in replacement of prescriptions. Not recommended for pregnant/breastfeeding women.
