What is...?

Eleuthero, also known as Siberian ginseng, is a medicinal plant native to Northeastern Asia. Practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine have used eleuthero for thousands of years to strengthen and balance qi (or chi) energy. Eleuthero was one of the first herbs to be recognized as an adaptogen and has since been studied around the globe for its myriad potential wellness benefits.*

Wellness Benefits of Eleuthero

Eleuthero is believed to act as an adaptogen — a special category of medicinal herbs that help the body resist the effects of stress.* Specifically, eleuthero is thought to support physical endurance, stamina, reflexes, concentration and energy.* 

Studies have demonstrated that eleuthero may boost athletic performance.* In fact, athletes were among the earliest adaptors when eleuthero first appeared in the global marketplace.

Additionally, eleuthero may support a healthy immune response and help the body resist the effects of mild to moderate fatigue.*

Eleuthero Origins and History

Eleuthero is native to the coniferous mountain thickets of China, Korea, Japan, Russia and other regions of Northeastern Asia. It has long been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and other folk healing practices. Eleuthero is considered to be energetically warming and relates to the heart, kidney and spleen meridians (pathways through which qi or vital life force energy flows).

Russian scientists brought global attention to eleuthero in the 1960s when they published research about the herb’s potential health benefits. In fact, the term “adaptogen” was coined by a Soviet scientist who first used the word to describe the properties of eleuthero. Thus, “Siberian ginseng” was marketed as the world’s first adaptogen. Despite this nickname, eleuthero is not related to Panax ginseng, also known as Asian ginseng.
