The latest issue of the Natural Medicine Journal features a Natural Standard evidence-based review on Siberian ginseng.
Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus, also known as Acanthopanax senticosus) is a small, woody shrub native to southeastern Russia, northern China, Korea, and Japan. Although Eleutherococcus senticosus is not related to true ginseng (Panax ginseng), the name Siberian ginseng became popular because the two plants shared some similar properties. Overall, there is currently little clinical evidence on the use of Siberian ginseng to treat any medical condition in humans.
