Barlowe's Herbal Elixirs Panax Ginseng Extract (80% Ginsenosides) REVIEW { Ginseng product Review}

I would like to Thank Barlowe for continuing to provide great products and being an honest business man, he offers truly remarkable deals and products that (in my eyes) have redefined the herbal atmosphere.

One thing I can say is he is always reliable and his products never dwindle in potency.

Now, to the product. Panax Ginseng ''Extract'' is notorious as an energy booster, as it is added to many energy drinks, including the cheap 99 cent drinks (Arizona Ginseng & Arizona Energy Rx) and the more popular ones like MonsterTM rely on this ingredient for their sustained energy boost. 

This product in particular is the most potent Ginseng extract I've tried yet, and remember, this isn't ''American'' Ginseng, this is the 'hot' or Korean Ginseng that is meant to be stimulating - and it is.

I've noticed a few things right off the bat.

  • First, it actually amplifies your Energy and Alertness level within the first day of taking it, its that strong, but of course, the effects are felt more so after Day 3 and beyond.
  • Second, when you take it with Caffeine, that effect is two-fold, and I can see how people can go overboard with it.
  • Third, if you take two or more capsules a day, its a strong possibility it may raise your blood pressure a bit (at least it did mine).
That being said, at one capsule a day I had no issues, also its possible (even probable) that me sipping Coffee throughout the day, and on some days instead taking Caffeine tablets, could have influenced my blood pressure as the interaction between Caffeine and Ginseng is notable.

The fact is, this product is actually comparable to Modafanil if used correctly, which is surprising for an herb, to give that much of an alertness and energy boost that it even remotely compares to a pharmaceutical who's goal is to provide rapid alertness, is a rare thing...and very important.

With that being said, the pharmacology / mechanism of Ginseng is no where near Modafanil, instead, it seems that Panax Ginseng variety works by antagonizing GABA-B receptors [1] [2] [3], thereby enhancing dopamine and noradrenaline by disinhibiting those neurotransmitters [4] [5]. Ginseng may also facilitate Ca2+ (Calcium Ions) entry into specific brain cells/neurons, thereby improving their action potentials and energy synthesis. Panax Ginseng Extracts have been shown to directly activate non-NMDA glutamate receptors as well. In some cases, it may inhibit GABA-A currents as well.


Even without Caffeine, this product packs a Punch!

Its a strong energy booster, and though I really love my Coffee, I think its safe to say this has a stronger overall 'Energy' effect. Hard to place at times, but it feels like it revs up every cell in your body slowly, but surely, and it definitely amps up the nervous systems 'pace', to be more quicker responding and sharper in decision making, though its prominent effect seems to be alertness and stamina-boosting.

That's where it really held out, endurance training and Strength training went way better on this stuff! With the strongest effects on endurance meaning longer runs, and more reps for the Leg Press. Pushed out more reps and more sets on one day with this stuff as well. Endurance with calisthenics (Pull-Ups, Push-Ups, Ab-Crunches) was much better as well [enhanced].
