PanaMAX Optimized Ginseng Extract Capsules by Natrium Health

What is PanaMAX Optimized Ginseng by Natrium Health?

Traditional inspiration meets modern formulation.

PanaMAX is a novel ginseng formulation that provides balanced energy and alertness, while also promoting a sense of calm.* Our inspiration was a traditional Chinese formula called "Shengmai San." PanaMAX contains both root and leaf extracts of Panax ginseng to provide a very balanced ginsenoside profile, and Schisandra chinensis, which significantly increases the bioavailability of the ginsenosides. Paired together, you get all the ginsenosides in the Panax ginseng plant in a highly-absorbable form.*

How Natrium Health Formulated PanaMAX Optimized Ginseng Capsules

A few years ago, we started looking into Panax ginseng and decided to acquire 3 different types of ginseng extracts. These were a ginseng root extract, a ginseng leaf extract and a fermented panax ginseng extract called GS15-4. Many of us around the office started to form preferences for each of the Panax ginsengs.

For example, if you need a quick pick me up, GS15-4 ginseng is great because it is pre-metabolized and kicks in quickly.* Furthermore, you can easily use it sublingually due to its rapid absorption and mild taste. The effects of GS15-4 ginseng are balanced but lean towards the energizing side of the spectrum and provide a subtle mood-brightening effect.*

Our ginseng root extract, on the other hand, leans more towards the calming side of the spectrum.* The Panax ginseng root extract, provides an uplifting yet calming effect that can melt stress away while providing a stable and happy mood.* The Panax ginseng leaf extract, however, is the complete polar opposite of the Panax ginseng root extract and the GS15-4 ginseng extract, and acts more like a stimulant than the other Panax ginseng extracts.* The Panax ginseng leaf became a favorite among those looking for some added energy, clarity and motivation.* That being said, it sacrificed the stress support and balancing effects of the Panax ginseng root extract and the GS15-4 ginseng extract. Instead of providing a gentle lift, the ginseng leaf extract is a little bit pushier and brings on a more abrupt increase in mood.* This is when we decided to investigate exactly what we were extracting with each extract and below are the results from this investigation:

Compound Name Ginseng Leaf
Amount (%)
Ginseng Root
Amount (%)
Ginsenoside Rg1 9.704 0.323
Ginsenoside Re 21.184 0.823
Ginsenoside Rb1 1.592 1.982
Ginsenoside Rc 2.72 1.679
Ginsenoside Rb2 3.099 1.36
Ginsenoside Rd 12.046 1.503


As can be see in the chart above, the ginseng leaf is very high in three of the six tested Ginsenosides (Rg1, Re, Rd), whereas in contrast, it is fairly low in the remaining three ginsenosides (Rb1, Rc, Rb2). The ginseng root on the other hand had a much more balanced ginsenoside profile, albeit much lower than the ginseng leaf extract. To put it into perspective a little bit more, there is a large gap between the highest present ginsenoside (Re) and the lowest present ginsenoside (Rb1) in the ginseng leaf extract. Ginsenoside Re is present at a concentration more than 13 X higher than ginsenoside Rb1 in the leaf extract.

In comparison to the root extract, there is a comparatively small gap between the highest present ginsenoside (Rb1) and the lowest present ginsenoside (Rg1). Ginsenoside Rb1 is present at a concentration of about 6 X higher than ginsenoside Rg1 in the root extract. This is likely part of the reason why the ginseng root extract has a more comprehensive and balanced effect in comparison to the ginseng leaf extract.*

The ginseng leaf extract, however, does provide a better boost to energy and mood so we decided to see if we could combine the two:*

Compound Name Ginseng Leaf
Amount (%)
Ginseng Root
Amount (%)
Amount (%)
Ginsenoside Rg1 9.704 0.323 5.0135
Ginsenoside Re 21.184 0.823 11.003
Ginsenoside Rb1 1.592 1.982 1.787
Ginsenoside Rc 2.72 1.679 2.199
Ginsenoside Rb2 3.099 1.36 2.2295
Ginsenoside Rd 12.046 1.503 6.774


As can be seen in the chart above, the combination of the ginseng leaf and the ginseng root extracts, yields a much more balanced ginsenoside profile than just the ginseng leaf on its own. Now, the difference between the lowest and highest present ginsenoside is much lower, with the lowest ginsenoside (Rb1) being present at a concentration of about 6 X lower than the highest present ginsenoside (Re). This is similar to the ratios seen in the balanced ginseng root extract and in fact, the combination of the two yields an energizing, mood boosting and balancing stack!*

After all of this research into ginsenosides, we also discovered that one of our favorite herbal supplements, Schisandra chinensis, can significantly boost the absorption of ginsenosides. Schisandra chinensis on its own has a pleasant mood elevating, energizing yet also calming effect, a perfect compliment to Panax ginseng in our opinion.* By combining ginseng leaf, ginseng root and Schisandra chinensis extracts, we found that we created a very balanced ginseng extract that fully embodies what a ginseng extract should be.* We decided to call this extract Panamax and we hope you like it as much as we do!

    Did Nothing

    Purchased this to assist with energy. It provided none.

    Although this does a wonderful job at mellowing out stimulation, it also makes me very tired. I’ve napped within 2 hours over half the time I’ve taken it. In a cognitive boost stack like advertised it is a big no.

    Great Part of a Cognition Stack

    I take this alongside Magnesium Threonate, B Complex Vitamin, Nigella Sativa and Bacopa to create a perfect cognitive environment for my work. I’m a server at a fast paced restaurant and this is a crucial part of my stack. Taken alone, it really helps my mood while giving me a clear mind and motivation to carry out multiple tasks without being overwhelmed. Highly recommend to anyone sensitive to caffeine or stimulants in general.

    Great stuff

    I think this stuff is pretty good. It's on the pricey side but for good reason. I love this when combined with Sabroxy, Caffeine, and L-Theanine. It also helps mitigate stimulant crashes when taken later in the day.

    Good effects and bad effects

    Been using this for about two weeks now and have noticed several peculiar effects. I'm not a medical expert so your mileage may vary, but this is what I found: Good: Enhanced libido and sensations, ability to last longer. Improved blood flow Calmess, less anxiousness Almost a walking meditative-like state Bad: Tiredness, feeling of heavy eyes Just feel like doing whatever I'm doing at the moment. (Slightly impaired executive function). Could be good or bad, depending on what your doing. I recommend it

    Just what I needed!!

    Noticable reduction in stress while still retaining energy, almost hard to work without taking this. I occasionally stack this with chocamine

    Ordered this for the second time and I’m really grateful for the amount of calm it’s given me. In my country ginseng is very popular but over-commercialized, expensive, and of questionable quality. I never feel like I need to second guess when ordering from you guys, always grateful.

    I believe I saw noticeable improvements in energy and mood. But for a fact I saw an increase in libido and ability in getting and maintaining a solid errection. I will use again in the future.

    Not for me

    I really love nootropicsdepot and their formulation but this one had a bad effect. I guess I should have known, I tried the Ginseng sample pack and only the leaf extract made me feel bad. This PanaMax contains a mix of ginsengs and schisandra but it includes leaf extract. I had hoped the mix evened things out but no. Since my body responds really poorly to ginseng leaf extract I felt consistently tired and drowsy, feeling very sleepy by 9-10PM. The opposite of what I expect of an energising product really. I do not blame the formulation. I guess ginseng leaf in any formula is once and for all -not- for me.

    Difficult to explain the substance. I don’t have enough experience taking different types of ginseng to say it’s different than the rest; however, since I can go as far to say I’m a bio hacker, this substance is something I’ve been searching for for years when taken with ashwanganda. Anyway, I have ordered my second bottle and have zero plans to stop. I may have found the right mix I’ve been looking for. That is very exciting. Anyway, the substance acts exactly how it’s marketed - which is almost unheard off these days.

    Great product

    Right away in 20-30 minutes you start to feel calming effects. Good thing about it is that does not make you feel sleepy or drowsy. Energy levels increase while maintaining a calm effect

    Nootropics depot suckered me as they sent a free sample with my last order lol. I don’t believe my experience was placebo as I forgot I even took it before the effects kicked in. Just to make sure, I ordered a bottle. The effects were as promoted. A little strange, though, as I have difficulty comparing to other supplements. It may be better than ashwaganda and other supplements I take such as Thrive, etc. I will add an additional review once I take a few weeks of the bottle I just ordered
