White Korean ginseng has an enormous amount of health benefits for your body. In particular the ginsenosides inside the plant which are unique to the Panax ginseng family. White Korean ginseng is really great for burning fat and losing weight, acts as an antioxidant, helps the liver, and many more. Here is a closer look into how the plant actually helps the body. 

White Korean Ginseng Significantly Reduces Heart Disease

During a study for type 2 diabetes, researchers found out that White Korean ginseng significantly reduced atherosclerosis which leads to heart disease and heart failure (HerbalSupplements). 

Reduces Inflammation

Panax Ginseng (White Korean is a part of the Panax family) significantly reduced high C- reactive protein (CRP) levels in patients with high CRP levels in addition to lowering interleukin -6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis factor (alpha TNF -a) which are inflammatory markers (Wong). "Exhibits antiinflammatory effects against hypoxia-induced COX-2 expression by binding to PPARy and thereby inhibiting the COX-2 expression" (ScienceDirect). 

Highly Effective Weight Loss Properties 

Very effective in helping people lose weight because it contains brown adipose tissue which helps to burn stubborn fat by raising these levels in your body (Alvarez). A significant fat-burning source, boosting metabolism, and keeps blood sugar levels at bay (Alvarez). Blocks obesity because it prohibits the formation of fat in your body and regulates the genes for storing fat within your body (Gumbs).

By being a direct source of brown adipose tissue (BAT), it really kills stored up fat in your body. BAT is a relatively new discovery however it has a major impact in burning fat fast, especially stubborn fat that diet and exercise have trouble getting rid of. 

Improves Liver Function & Reverses Liver Damage

Helps the liver function better and keeps it from developing fatty liver (Alvarez). A 5-year human study was conducted, and researchers found Korean ginseng extract reversed liver damage along with reversing damage to the liver from alcohol (Ang). 

Halts Tumor Growth and Prevents Cancer from Developing

The cancer benefits discovered are truly amazing. Ginseng has been discovered to stop tumor growth and work well in human genes in relation to developing cancer which is why Dr Axe believes it will work well as a natural cancer preventer (Axe). Immunocompromised cancer patients had better immune systems after taking ginseng over a long period of time compared to those who didn't take it (Ang).


Ginsenosides are unique to the ginseng plants but pack a lot of health benefits for people's bodies, including (ScienceDirect):

  • antiinflammatory 
  • brain function
  • anti-cancer
  • relevant role in preventing and treating Parkinson's disease 
  • good for your liver
  • lungs 
  • colon
  • antioxidant
  • antiaging
  • energy

White Korean ginseng comes packed with a ton of ginsenosides. Ginsenoside levels are not identical in every form of ginseng available. The different forms of ginseng are mostly cultivated in Russia, China, Korea, and sometimes Japan, and usually harvested after 5 - 6 years of age (Wikiepedia).
