In addition, eleuthero is sometimes used to improve athletic performance, boost the immune system, and ease the side effects of chemotherapy.
To date, research on the health effects of Siberian ginseng is fairly limited. However, some studies suggest that eleuthero shows promise in the treatment of certain conditions, including:
Eleuthero is possibly effective for cold relief when taken in combination with the herb Andrographis, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). A 2004 study of 130 children published in Phytotherapy Research found that an herbal formula containing eleuthero and Andrographis helped reduce cold duration and severity when treatment was started at the early stages of the cold.
In general, it takes four to five days of treatment with the Andrographis/Siberian ginseng combination in order to experience maximum cold relief, the NIH states.
Eleuthero may help improve mental performance in people with mild, stress-induced fatigue, according to a 2009 research review published in Current Clinical Pharmacology.
Additionally, a 2004 study from Psychological Medicine found that eleuthero might benefit people with "moderate fatigue." However, the study also found that eleuthero was not effective for people with severe fatigue. The study involved 96 people with fatigue, each of whom received either eleuthero or a placebo for two months.
For a 2009 study published in The Korean Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology, researchers assigned 57 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee to six weeks of daily treatment with either a placebo or an herbal formula containing eleuthero, Panax Ginseng, and Chinese foxglove. By the study's end, those had received the herbal formula showed greater improvement in pain and physical functioning (compared to those who had taken the placebo). However, it's not known whether eleuthero on its own can help manage osteoarthritis.
Eleuthero may help cut high cholesterol, according to a small study published in Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications in 2008. For the study, 40 postmenopausal women were assigned to receive either calcium or calcium plus eleuthero for six months. Study results revealed that those who were given calcium plus eleuthero experienced significant decreases in LDL cholesterol and certain markers of oxidative stress (a destructive biological process linked to many major health problems, including heart disease and cancer).
