OVERVIEW

Commonly know as either Siberian Ginseng or Eleuthero, is know by science as Eleutherococcus senticosus. As with a some of our other products, Siberian Ginseng is classified as an: ADAPTOGEN helping the body adapt to stress, it allows for an increased tolerance to mental exhaustion, enhancing attention and mental endurance, and although not directly related to the ginseng family or Panax Ginseng, it has been given the name due to its similar adaptogenic capacity on the body and is used widely for these actions.
The woody root is the part of Eleuthero that is harvested, The Grove Eleuthero is Organically grown and harvested in China away from harmful pollution, it is harvested when mature to ensure its potency, then dried and ground to the fine premium powder we provide you here.
Used for 1000's of years by Traditional Chinese Medicine Herbalist, it is used as a strong Qi tonic (chi, life energy, vital energy) and so very important in the energy of the body, as well as used to support cognitive and physical performance, endurance, fatigue prevention, oxygenation and recovery, suggesting that those who are athletic or physically active should use it. But they also note it to aid memory, immune function and alertness. With Traditional Russian Medicine suggesting it should be used to nourish the Immune System.
Science has substantiated some of these traditional health claims attributing their actions, primarily, to the Polysaccharide and Eleutheroside compounds that are in abundance in this root. These have been studied extensively and shown to potentially be effective for various health conditions including; cognitive and physical performance, with the anti-inflammatory effects potentially supporting organ function and skeletal health (arthritis and osteoporosis). Interestingly when combined with another of our products Schisandra it has been shown to potentially further aid those suffering from mild fatigue.
Although some people may feel the effects immediately, Eleuthero is another natural product that tends to be most beneficial when consumed over a longer period, where its accumulative effects become more powerful.

THE MAGIC OF FOOD SCIENCE*

SKELETAL (OSTEOPOROSIS)
Osteoporosis happens when the bones become brittle making them more susceptible to breakages. There can be various causes including; vitamin D deficiency, calcium deficiency, lack of physical exercise, early menopause, medications, smoking and alcohol. Other conditions can also make a person more susceptible to osteoporosis such as, liver / kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis and thyroid issues — to name just a few.

 Studies suggest that Eleuthero may have the ability to potentially help reduce the loss of bone density and thus the effects of osteoporosis, and all with no negative impact on the rest of the any other functions of the body including the organs and homones. (1)

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY and SKELETAL (ARTHRITIS)
Studies suggest that Eleuthero may have positive impacts on Arthritis, the anti-inflammatory effects of Eleuthero when taken prior to the onset of rheumatoid arthritis, appear to potentially slow the onset of and the severity of the condition. But if taken after the arthritis has begun it may only aid in reducing the severity. (4)

FATIGUE
Scientific trials have documented that Schisandra and Eleuthero may potentially increase endurance and mental performance in patients who have mild fatigue and weakness, as the stress response in the body was being regulated. This may be due to the adaptogenic capacity of these products. (5, 6, 7, 8)

COGNITIVE and PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE
The adaptogenic properties of Eleuthero have also been shown to potentially demonstrate protective actions within the brain, but further studies are required. (8, 9)
In addition, it has been studied and suggested that Eleuthero — again due to its adaptogenic properties — potentially exhibits the ability to increase mental and physical performance, in some instances, this can take effect within as little as 30 minutes of consumption and lasts for around 4-6hours, and even better, unlike other stimulants, Eleuthero doesn't have addictive qualities, doesn't have a "come down", nor does it effect sleep. (5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY (BLOOD SUGAR)
Studies have suggested that the anti-inflammatory and protective effects of Eleuthero could display positive effects on diabetic damage to cells, as well as lipid and glucose regulation.
 (2)

ORGANS and ANTI-INFLAMMATORY (LIVER)
It has been suggested that the anti-inflammatory effects of Eleuthero may help reduce damage to the liver, primarily relating to the potential prevention of liver failure via a compound found in Eleuthero called Syringin. But it may also have and immunomodulatory effects, which support this effect. (3)

SCIENTIFIC STUDIES*


FINDINGS

As with many things internet based, a lot of information is sourced by being copied and pasted, then some creative license is added, numbers made bigger or smaller depending, and boom you have a superfood or a superherb. We aim to collaborate with founded evidence and provide this evidence to you so that you can make up your own mind, we must also remember that everyone is different, everyone needs different things, one thing may work for 1 but not for another and their use is also impacted by a variety of other factors — we have not made assumptions we are giving you the information so you may make an informed choice.
Opposite are the studies we've found which are explained below, as new studies are released we will update them here.

We welcome constructive comments and dialects, encouraging you to send us a message via our contact page.

A SHORT HISTORY

Eleuthero has been traditionally used to improve vitality, immunity and relieve stress. It is commonly used an and anti-fatigue tonic herb—a favourite among herbalists and especially popular in Russia as an adaptogenic herbal supplement. Feel free to send us your findings if you come across any, we would love to hear from you.

HISTORICAL USES



Starting in the 1960’s Soviet scientists were charged with finding ways to cement Soviet superiority, so they started to research a root called Eleuthero that grew in the Siberian forests and they were not disappointed.
The soviets began to use Eleuthero to boost various areas of their progression, from use for worker concentration and productivity to strengthen their army. A former Soviet sports nutrition researcher and coach, Dr. Ben Tabachnik, attributes Eleuthero to the Soviet Olympic team domination of the 1988 Olympics, and it was also into space by Soviet astronauts, with them raising a glass of Eleuthero extract in 1967, toasting their orbit acheivement!
Some of the Soviet research into Eleuthero was filed "classified", as the Soviet scientists wanted to closely guard their newly found secret which was improving their performance in many areas.

LIFE OF ELEUTHERO (SIBERIAN GINSENG)

Eleutherococcus senticosus is native to the far east of Siberia, and some related species growing throughout Northern China, Korea, and Japan. It is a deciduous thorny, creeping, shrub that grows slowly ending up around 2m in height and reaching maturity after around 7 years. It prefers shelter from the wind, but a good amount of sun (either partly shaded or full sun). Usually growing in well drained loamy, humus-rich soil, at the foot of the forest, sometimes creating large impenetrable thickets, and can tolerate temperatures of around -15°c if they are sheltered from cold winds.

Eleuthero is imported as due to the cycle and temperature required for optimum growing conditions. Panax Ginseng is currently being grown in Tasmania, but in small amounts due to cost, rotation and yield.


Farming



The Eleuthero root is organically grown in China. 
The roots are harvested, selected and cleaned. 
They are then washed and organically disinfected.

Processing

The roots are sliced, dried and crushed.
 The powder is then ground a second time to finer powder, sifted and bulk packed ready for transport.

Importing

The product is then put on a ship and sails to Australia and arrives at The Grove HQ approximately 6 weeks later.

Packing

Once it arrives at The Grove HQ we carry out quality control checks and repackage it ready for you.
