Eleuthero Root

Organically grown and harvested.

Botanical Name: Eleutherococcus Senticosus

Eleuthero is an adaptogen. Adaptogens are a class of substances that stimulate the body's resistance to physical, environmental, and emotional stressors. Eleuthero contains many chemicals that affect the brain, immune system, and certain hormones.

People use Eleuthero for diabetes, athletic performance, memory and thinking skills, the common cold, and many other conditions.

Eleuthero is a shrub native to Asia formerly known as Siberian ginseng. However, although the plant is a distant cousin of Panax ginseng, it does not contain ginsenosides.

For this reason, also also in compliance with the US Ginseng Labeling Act of 2002, the herb is no longer called Siberian ginseng but is referred to as eleuthero or, in Chinese medicine, as Ciwujia (Ci Wu Jia).
