Ginseng May Help Relieve Schizophrenia Symptoms

In a recent study, a form of Asian Ginseng was shown to relieve symptoms of Schizophrenia. 



Patients who normally experienced reduction in emotional expression and lack of motivation reported fewer negative symptoms after taking ginseng. Patients taking 200mg of Panax Ginseng were 50% less likely to experience a lack of emotional expression than when taking placebo. The Canadian study was recently presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association. David Baron, professor and chairman of the department of psychiatry at Temple University said, “there’s a signal here; the fact that Panax ginseng works on the same brain receptors as antipsychotic drugs makes it something to look at.”
