"I've been taking Siberian ginseng for a week three times a day as I am peri menopausal. I've been experiencing brain fog for nearly a year and complete lack of energy. Having done some research ginseng is recommended for these reasons when trying to tackle the dreaded menopause and I must say today is one of the first days I feel like my old self. I've also combined this with evening primrose oil 3 times a day and calcium supplements and I'm aware I'll probably have to do this for the remainder of my life but it's worth it to future proof my brain and bones and protect my family from my awful mood swings and depression! Definitely worth a try"

"Do not take this if you are on any antidepressants or antipsychotics it interacts very badly and can lead to psychosis. Ginseng is best avoided as are all adaptogens like Rhodiola and Ashwaghanda they can have very unpleasant effects on mood, anxiety levels and can cause extreme anxiety/anger. There are better safer alternatives."

"Ginseng is the best thing I have found for PTSD. I can't take SSRIs, so my options to treat that are limited. I disassociate much less when I take this, and I'm less likely to have intrusive or suicidal thoughts. I thought I just got better but then I ran out of my ginseng supplement and within a week I felt awful and crazy again. It doesn't completely get rid of symptoms but it helps a lot. Also when I take it I don't drink nearly as much coffee. It gives me energy. Take it in the morning or early in the day so it doesn't interfere with sleep."

"I am 64 I am in very good health but at this age I can not sustain my erection a sufficient time . So I tried 3 kinds of GINSENG I had a very strong and sustained erection. But unfortunately 2 times I get for 2 days high blood pressure until 17/11 and the 3rd time I get a big allergy with muscle shaking and blood pressure raising quickly I stop it. So I don't dare take it any more. Is there a solution ?"

"I was taking a supplement which includes gingseng, rhodiola and cordiceps, which should helps with stress and energy level and better circulation and calmness. Massive price tag on this supplement, it doesn't help with any problems mentioned above, all it did it makes me feel nervous and anxious with running thoughts at speed 100mph, unable to concentrate on simple tasks, upset stomach and headaches thereafter. Another supplement thrown away..."
