Siberian ginseng has been traditionally used in Asia for a wide variety of conditions. It has been suggested as a potential adaptogen and exercise performance enhancer, but evidence of effectiveness is insufficient. Additional research is also needed to determine whether it is beneficial for cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, familial Mediterranean fever, genital herpes hypotension (neurocirculatory), immune disorders, menopause, pneumonia, quality of life, and respiratory tract infections.
Brindall berry: Brindall berry, also called garcinia, is a purple fruit that is native to India and Southeast Asia. It contains high levels of hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which is used as a weight-loss aid. An extract of (-)-hydroxycitric acid (HCA-SX) in combination with niacin-bound chromium and Gymnema sylvestre extract has been reported to reduce appetite, inhibit fat synthesis, and decrease body weight without stimulating the central nervous system. However, overall, the available evidence is inconclusive.
Ginger: Ginger (Zingiber officinale) has been used extensively in Chinese, Japanese, and Indian medicine since the 1500s. The oleoresin of ginger is often contained in digestive, antitussive, antiflatulent, laxative, and antacid formulations.
Gymnema: Gymnema (Gymnema sylvestre) has been used for more than 2,000 years in India. It has been shown to lower serum glucose levels following chronic use but may not have significant acute effects. Preliminary human research reports that gymnema may be beneficial in patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes when taken with oral diabetes medications or insulin. It may also help lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels in patients with type 2 diabetes.
