How can ginseng help with cancer?

According to certain research, there exists a link between ginseng and cancer. From the studies conducted and findings gathered so far, ginseng has been found to show the following:

  • Help improve the quality of life in cancer patients
  • Reduce cancer-related signs and symptoms
  • Help lessen the negative effects of chemotherapy
  • Boost the impacts of chemotherapeutic agents
  • Reduce the risk of the occurrence of cancer by as much as 50%

What gives ginseng its anticancer properties?

Despite its appearance, ginseng is loaded with many different natural compounds that support its medical and therapeutic benefits. Some of its key active components are ginsenosides, flavonoids, amino acids, polysaccharides, volatile oils, and essential vitamins. And, based on research findings, ginsenosides and polysaccharides are believed to be the two that are responsible for the herb’s anticancer properties.

Ginsenosides are natural compounds found in ginseng. According to various studies, they have anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidation, vasorelaxation, and anticancer effects. So far, there have been over 40 different types isolated and identified, and they can be grouped into three different classifications based on their chemical structures. The Rb1 ginsenoside, for instance, has been shown to protect against oxidative stress. Meanwhile, the Rg1 ginsenoside has been found to inhibit certain oncogenes, which are mutated genes that may become the cause of cancer.

Polysaccharides in ginseng are water-soluble compounds that possess antitumor properties. According to certain research, they have shown some antitumor activity by supporting and regulating the human body’s immune response. They have been found to be effective stimulators of T cells and B cells, which are the immune system’s white blood cells responsible for blocking and destroying bacteria, viruses, and other foreign invaders.
