Plant Adaptogens: Natural Medicaments for 21st Century?

Plant Adaptogens: Natural Medicaments for 21st Century?

Panax ginseng (on a picture) and several more medicinal plants were reviewed for their adaptogenic effect, including their plant products with the same effect. Adaptogens are non-toxic, harmless, capable of not influencing normal body functions more than required, and capable of treating depression, a common neuropsychiatric disease. Adaptogens also display positive effect on patients with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
