  • Another 2019 study published in the Journal of Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment concluded that daily supplementation of Panax ginseng for 8 weeks improved cognitive performance and mood in patients with mild cognitive impairment. (Lee et al., 2019)
  • A third study from 2019 published in the journal Nutrients showed that daily supplementation with Panax ginseng extract for 4 weeks improved cognitive performance, psychological well-being, and physical performance in healthy adults. (Xue et al., 2019)
  • In a larger study of 1040 participants, published in the journal Frontiers in Pharmacology, Panax ginseng was found to be beneficial for improving overall mental health and reducing fatigue. (Shen et al., 2018)
