A 14-week randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial was conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ginseng polysaccharide (Y-75) and to verify Y-75 for safety and immune efficacy in 72 healthy volunteers aged 50-75 years.
A single-centered, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study on the efficacy and safety of "enzyme-treated red ginseng powder complex (bg11001)" for antiwrinkle and proelasticity in individuals with healthy skin has shown significantly improved eye wrinkle roughness, skin elasticity, and moisture content.
Korean red ginseng extract keeps a respiratory virus called RSV (for respiratory syncytial virus) from spreading.
He joined forces with a university and research institutes in South Korea to see if ginseng could be used to protect against and fight these viruses.

While many people take ginseng by itself--often for increased energy or libido --it is used throughout Asia as one of a number of herbs in herbal formulas.
I remember hearing about a young man who ate large quantities of ginseng every day.
We evaluated potential interference of Asian, American, and Indian ginsengs on serum digoxin measurement both in vitro and in vivo in a mouse model with the ECLIA-digoxin assay and a turbidimetric assay (TIA) on Bayer's ADVIA Chemistry systems and compared the results with the results obtained by using FPIA.
Different ginsengs used in this study were purchased from local herbal stores in Houston, Tex.
To examine potential in vivo interference of the ginsengs in digoxin assays, mice were fed 300 [micro]L of Asian, American, or Indian ginseng preparations by gavage, and blood specimens were collected 1 and 3 hours after feeding using the retro-orbital bleeding technique.
In another experiment, separate aliquots of another drug-free serum pool were supplemented with Asian, American, and Indian ginsengs (60 [micro]L/mL of serum) to study protein binding of digoxin-like immunoreactive components of various ginsengs.
No apparent digoxin concentration was observed in the serum of any mouse using ECLIA and TIA assay, indicating that metabolites of ginsengs do not interfere with these assays.
