Are there any negative health effects associated with taking red ginseng and dim (diindolylmethane) which is a natural estrogen blocker?
Rare side effects: These are safe to take together as they have no known interactions. While both are safe, ginseng can cause anxiety and insomnia is some and rarely high blood pressure, low blood sugar, diarrhea etc.- see http://umm.

Wrong question: There is no systematic evidence that korean ginseng is good for anything, let alone stroke. Ginseng is one of those bogus "ancient wisdom" things. Its use is based on a superstition called the "doctrine of signatures:" because the root looks like a little headless man, the ancients got this delusion that it would cure things. Arm yourself with modern knowledge, not ancient superstition. ...Read more
Is it OK for me to take red Korean ginseng with the high blood pressure medication that I am taking?
These are the things I am taking, korean red ginseng, multivitamen, fish oil, vitamen c, vegetable protein and loratadine tablets (for allergies). Are these alright together?
There are no adverse interactions between these things. Make sure you take a high-quality multivit. At least 1/3 of adults can't convert Folic Acid to the active form, l-5-mthf ; anxiety/high BP makes it likely you need a multivit that has the l-5-mthf form.
Also most adults need 5-8000 iu of d3 in fall ; winter months to achieve optimal levels- see http://bit. Ly/1ekkvkv ; http://bit. Ly/1dc7vna. ...Read more
No published RCTs: RCT = randomized controlled trial. Peer-reviewed published RCTs are the gold standard to prove that something works. This is how Big Pharma goes about getting a drug approved by FDA. You can skip this by selling a compound as a dietary supplement (assuming you meet certain other requirements). In this case, you can make any claim you want w/o substantiation (evidence), much less proof of safety. ...Read more
