Red Ginseng has Anti-Aging and Anti-Fatigue Effects

73 postmenopausal women ages 46-69 years took Korean red ginseng or a placebo for 8 weeks.

Results: Fatigue scores decreased 20% for the women taking red ginseng, with no change in the placebo group.

Additionally, the red ginseng group had close to a 10% improvement in antioxidant activity, while the placebo group had a small decrease in their antioxidant levels.

The researchers also measured mitochondrial DNA markers as a measure of anti-aging effects. The red ginseng group had a 35% improvement in these numbers while the placebo group had only a 6% improvement.
