Research on American ginseng root in the past 20 years has increasingly shown that it can help lower blood sugar in people with diabetes mellitus. The effect seems most prominent when American ginseng is taken 30 to 60 minutes before eating. This suggests American ginseng may work in part by slowing the absorption of sugars from the diet. Other research hints that American ginseng may work at least in part by making the cells more receptive to insulin in people who are insulin resistant.
Regardless of how American ginseng works, it must be used in conjunction with dietary and lifestyle changes. American ginseng works well with these therapies but is not effective by itself. It may help avoid the need for oral diabetes drugs in people with type II diabetes but can never substitute for insulin in people with type I diabetes. However, there have been no long-term studies on this.
American ginseng also helps the body cope with stress and strengthens the immune system. Compounds known as saponins that are found in ginseng reduce the damage the body's stress hormones cause. Saponins may also help muscle cells produce and use energy more efficiently, which helps the body cope with stress. These compensatory mechanisms reduce the negative impact of stress on immunity.
American ginseng cannot take the place of insulin. In fact, it may cause insulin to lower blood sugar too much, so do not take American ginseng with insulin on your own. Consult a natural health care professional who can help you find a safe dose.

It’s been speculated that saponins may have anti-arthritic properties by suppressing intestinal protozoa which may have a role in joint inflammation.; saponis are a plant constituent or a secondary metabolite that helps the body create steroids to create muscle growth and raise testosterone levels, Yucca has anti-inflammatory properties and free radical scavengers that also work to suppress reactive oxygen species that activate inflammatory responses. Based on these findings, further research into the anti-inflammatory effects of Yucca is needed.
