Ginseng has been used for centuries as an important component of traditional Chinese medicine and includes 11 species. Panax ginseng, also referred to as true ginseng, is one of the most common, well-researched species. Panax ginseng presents a variety of uses for numerous ailments.
While panax ginseng was traditionally dried or brewed as a tea, it has since been extracted into more concentrated forms. GS15-4 is an extract of panax ginseng that presents many of the potential benefits of ginseng.
In studies, panax ginseng has primarily been found to boost the health of your whole body, potentially recalibrating and normalizing bodily functions that may not be operating optimally. Panax ginseng shows potential positive effects for neutralizing inflammation.
Studies also show that panax ginseng may help to repair and improve the immune system as a whole. Researchers have found that taking panax ginseng may increase the number of immune cells. This has led to studies suggesting that panax ginseng extract may support:
One study found that participants who took panax ginseng experienced metabolic/glucose support. Early studies have also found panax ginseng’s potential for promoting overall brain health.
Research shows that panax ginseng may act as a potential antioxidant. Antioxidants eliminate harmful compounds known as free radicals, which are created naturally during the process of cellular oxidation. Free radicals have been shown to damage cellular membranes and mutate DNA.
Many studies have found panax ginseng to be a viable adaptogen. This means that panax ginseng may help you adapt to stress and limit the physical and emotional damage caused by stress. Panax ginseng may also have a calming effect on the body and mind and potentially promote better sleep quality.
Panax ginseng also shows potential for improving cognitive health and mental processes. Research has also found that the Rg1 group of ginsenosides in ginseng may be responsible for improving maintenance processes in your neurons while supporting cognitive functions. One study suggested that panax ginseng has the potential to improve performance in tasks requiring high levels of cognitive function for prolonged periods of time. Panax ginseng has been shown to improve both spatial and working memory. Studies also show that this root may improve focus, concentration, and thinking abilities.
GS15-4 panax ginseng extract benefits may apply to athletic performance as well. Panax ginseng has been shown to work naturally as an appetite suppressant. The root extract may also increase stamina and energy levels and help regulate metabolism. Using panax ginseng may potentially lower your recovery time and muscle fatigue.
Panax ginseng roots contain triterpenoid saponins called ginsenosides. Many other species of ginseng lack these ginsenoside compounds. Ginsenosides are the main active compound in panax ginseng, responsible for the reported effects and benefits of the root.

I love this ginseng, it provides a boost in energy, both mentally and physically. It also helps a lot with my stress and helps keep me from over reacting to situations, especially while driving long distances. I also love the other ND Panax Ginseng root extract and often combine them. I don't take it on a daily basis, I will usually take it 2-3 days then take a 1-3 day break.

So, I just received this product and started using it with a couple of other nootropics, so I will not make any comments about the effects of this, for now at least, because its both too soon and hard to define which effect comes specifically from this product. However, I am very dissatisfied by two things already.
1- The powder is VERY insoluble in water. I don't know if it was because of temperature variations during the overseas shipping, but the powder has hardened into solid rocks, and its very hard to dissolve that. I this powder is supposed to be dissolved using a particular method, it should be previously stated! The product description here says it has exceptional absorption, but its so insoluble that its hard to believe that.
2- I honestly don't understand why it's so hard for the producers/Company to just kindly provide a scaled scoop to handle the powder. I mean, how hard would it be to just give a scoop measuring exactly 200mg of that specific powder, so that I wouldn't completely depend on a weighing machine
So far I haven't been able to access the effects, I shall write another review covering this when the time comes
ND Admin: Panax ginseng root always clumps, no matter what type of extract it is. That's just a normal property of the extracts of panax ginseng root. Extracts of the leaves do not have that problem. So if clumping is a big issue, we suggest going with the leaf extract instead. Regarding scoops, they are not accurate forms of measurement. Powders vary in density based on milling size, which can change batch-to-batch. Accuracy in dosing matters. We feel it is irresponsible to continually promote the use of scoops as instruments of dosing, as they are NOT accurate. Weight-based dosing is always going to be more accurate than volumetric dosing. We always suggest using a milligram scale for measuring powders. We offer this product in capsules if weighing the powder is not an option. F. Balthazar on 28th Feb 2018
I'm giving 4 stars because I have bought this extract in liquid form directly from Ilhwa before, and it is very good. BUT I am removing a star because the package is misleading: Why write that the transfer scoop isn't accurate, if there it no transfer scoop at all? I am very disappointed because now I have to use a scale and I don't have ustensils that are really adequate, I will lose a lot of time and probably a part of the product. I didn't mind not getting exactly 200 mg on every dose, but I do mind having to weight my doses everyday. 3ric on 12th Feb 2018
My jar has been with me for weeks and I still have plenty left. This is due to I think the purity and how fast it works. I use it in the afternoon when I start to get that mental fatigue. However I would say that like most ginseng its going to diminish in effectiveness after 6-8 weeks of use. Consult examine.com or pubmed. Korbin on 23rd Oct 2017
I take 200 mg in the morning before work as well as my 1-3 polygala tenuifolia 10:1 capsules throughout the day and I feel a very sustained energy. Its a very nice blend and it tastes very well. I highly recommend. Russ on 16th Aug 2017
About to buy again, should say it all.
I take a lot of nootropics, this tends to be at the core of every batch I make.
Hard to quantify or correlate its exact value when there are so many variables.
N=1 seems to hold value & has me hitting the buy button again. Flight Medick on 12th Aug 2017
I did notice a subtle energy boost, but did experience bloating at modest doses (200mg.) At least this kept my appetite at bay...! Unknown on 12th Jul 2017
The GS15-4 gives you subtle energy. Something you can feel but not overwhelming like straight caffeine.
I'm looking forward to trying other Ginseng products from Nootropics Depot.
As always it got to me quickly Michael on 9th May 2017
Great product. I love this product for mental and physical energy. Also helps with recouperation after a serious workout. Paul on 9th Mar 2017
This is an excellent substance and feels more "well rounded" and balanced than a lot of the commercial ginseng's that have have an edgier, speedier feel. This one enhances well being and reduces stress. Having said that I like to combine 200 mg of this extract with about 75mg of the more stimulating leaf extract that ND also sells. I can go all day with that combo. Jim on 7th Nov 2016
