Ginseng not only improves the general feeling of wellbeing and lifts the energy of those with chronic fatigue, it has a strong stimulatory effect to assist the body to resist the rigors of physical stress. Ginseng is an old answer to a modern health issue. Ginseng is a shrubby plant whose roots contain the biologically active agents. Most supplements utilize the properties of the root but some may use the leaves. Interestingly, the roots contain the highest level of active agents just before the plant comes into flower. Analysis of the plant has shown that the principal drug-like agents belong to a large group of organic substances called eleutherosides. These give ginseng its famous stimulant and tonic effects.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: For anyone suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome the main problem is simply finding enough energy to function from day to day.
Chronic fatigue has been around for many years but it has only recently become a recognizable medical condition, with the result that many more cases are now being identified.
One of the key issues in chronic fatigue is a lazy immune system. Most sufferers complain of recurrent health problems such as coughs and colds, chest infections, and nasal congestion. The relationship between the emotions and the state of the immune response is only now being fully appreciated and the use of ginseng's adaptogenic properties is becoming even more pertinent.
Adaptogenic properties have the ability to "normalize" a biological system. For example, when under physical or emotional stress the adrenal glands respond by releasing the hormone adrenalin. Ginseng can protect the adrenal glands and, despite continuous stress, help avoid stress-induced adrenal damage or exhaustion that may be in part responsible for chronic fatigue syndrome.
Ginseng has a strong stimulatory effect on the white blood cells known as T-helper cells. Once active these T-cells become highly effective against opportunistic infections.
Keeps Stress in Control: In addition to countless anecdotal reports of the effect of ginseng in times of stress, there have been many interesting studies into this herb that show it to be very effective in improving tolerance to many stress factors, including noise and overwork.

Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 tea bag for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
Iced tea brewing method (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water].
