Though only ginseng root is the part ulatlized in TCM, scientific study shows there are rich ginsenosides in ginseng leaves too.
The experimental results show that ginsenosides can significantly inhibit the formation of lipid peroxides in the brain and liver, reduce the content of lipofuscin in the cerebral cortex and liver, and also increase the content of superoxide dismutase and catalase in the blood.
18 ginseng monomer saponinshas been isolated and identified.
Some monomeric saponins in ginsenosides, such as rg3, rg2, rb1, rb2, rd, rc, re, rg1, etc., can reduce the free radical content in the body to varying degrees.
Ginsenosides can delay the aging of nerve cells and reduce memory damage in the elderly, and can stabilize the membrane structure and increase protein synthesis, which can improve the memory ability of the elderly.
