It was not until the middle of the 20th century that the bristle taiga root was recommended as an alternative to the previously more expensive European ginseng variant.
The Bristly taiga root belongs to the Aralia family and is native to countries such as Siberia, Japan, North Korea, Manchuria and China. Despite its good effectiveness, it was not known in Europe for a long time. In Siberia, however, the plant has a long tradition and has been used for centuries to strengthen and strengthen the body. It was not until the middle of the 20th century that the bristle taiga root was recommended as an alternative to the previously more expensive European ginseng variant.
Both plants have similar fields of activity and are even found in similar regions. The bristle taiga root has been professionally cultivated in Siberia for years. The name "Siberian ginseng" in particular suggests that the plant is used as a medicine. The bristle taiga root is a maximum of seven meters high and is a so-called deciduous shrub with dark fruits in blue and black. There are small spines on the branches, the leaves are oval.
The fruits form after a yellow inflorescence, which is formed in July and has a hermaphrodite character. The plant is pollinated by bees and butterflies. The bristle taiga root is a true all-rounder when it comes to vitality and strength and there is a reason for that: In addition to substances such as choloric acid, which is the main ingredient with up to 1.7 percent, polysaccharides and the lignans syringin and liriodendrin also provide the high effectiveness of the medicinal plant.
While the leaves are used to make tea, the root is required to make the drug. The good effect has been scientifically proven, both human and animal subjects were tested, which confirmed a performance-enhancing effect. The bristle taiga root is an "adaptogen", which means that it is able to show the body how to get used to stress.
The plant is also said to have a supporting effect on the adrenal gland. The oxygen content in the muscles is improved, which is why a support from a preparation of the plant can also be useful during sporting activities. There are now Russian studies that attest a good defense against chemicals such as barbital, sodium or ethanol, which is why the plant is also used after chemotherapy and radiation. The sick can recover from the exertion more quickly.
Even with immune diseases such as HIV or chronic fatigue, the first successes have already been recorded. Regular consumption is said to increase the T4 lymphocytes. The medicinal plant can be traditionally taken as a tea in order to effectively support the strengthening process of body and psyche. For this purpose, a few grams of the leaves (2-4 g, about a heaped teaspoon) are poured over 200 ml of hot water and closed with a lid.
Then let it steep for ten minutes and carefully drain through a sieve. A high-quality honey or algae juice (organic goods) should be added as a sweetener, but the tea can also be taken that way. The intake period of two to three months should not be exceeded for safety reasons. A renewed application is then recommended after a further three months. There is now a considerable number of products in the field of finished medicinal products. The bristle taiga root is available as a powder, in tablet form or as a liquid.
The bristle taiga root stands for improved concentration and stamina, which should be brought about by its immune-stimulating properties. T lymphocytes ensure that bacteria and other stressors do not even interfere with the immune system. The organism is strengthened and does not go into a phase of exhaustion. The physical and mental resilience should also be enormously strengthened by taking this medicinal plant.
Those who are often exposed to stressful situations could find a real alternative in the bristle taiga root. An adrenaline-lowering component is responsible for the strengthening effect, which ensures that the stress hormone is released less. People are more resilient and can face the challenges of everyday life more easily. The plant is also recommended for tiredness, concentration disorders, general weakness of the immune system and against any states of exhaustion.
After a long illness, it can help to revitalize body and mind more quickly and thus accelerate recovery. As a preventive measure, the plant can be used to prevent states of exhaustion. Stressful phases, changes in life, special demands in everyday life can be dealt with more easily. Body and psyche are less stressed and receive a kind of "protective shield". The bristle taiga root is also recommended for emerging colds.
Even a commission of the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices recommends the medicinal plant expressly "as a tonic to strengthen and strengthen when feeling tired and weak, declining performance and concentration as well as convalescence."
