Korean red ginseng has been used in traditional Chinese medicine as an overall wellness supplement for centuries and might be used to treat diabetes. We must say might because these claims have yet to be proven by contemporary medical science. There are however numerous scientific studies underway.
These studies are looking into whether or not Korean Red Ginseng (panax ginseng) improves glucose and insulin regulation in well-controlled, type 2 diabetes*.
While these studies are still ongoing, the data looks promising!
Even if Korean Red Ginseng might not be accepted as a treatment for diabetes yet, it at least won't raise your blood sugar. So if you're looking for a tasty drink that also gives you energy without raising your blood sugar, look no further!
Diabetic Friendliness is only one of the possible benefits. Korean Red Ginseng is also promoted as a dietary supplement for a variety of other reasons. To improve physical stamina, concentration, and memory; stimulate immune function; slow the aging process; and relieve various other health problems, such as respiratory and cardiovascular disorders, depression, anxiety, and menopausal hot flashes.
