No real true benefit: One small poorly done study showed a very slight lowering of glucose. Side affects are loss of $$ for taking needless supplements.

Is ginseng safe for pregnant women or nursing mothers

No: There are many types of ginseng -- asian, chinese, siberian, american, etc. But a few types of asian/eastern ginseng have been shown to cause birth defects in animal pregnancies. So...Very high risk for very low reward.

Can I take panax ginseng with zantrex 3 pills?

Can I take panax ginseng with zantrex 3 pills?

Unknown: Nobody knows what will happen if those two non-medications are taken together. They are not fda approved medications, which means they may not have any good research, reliable data, verified quality control, etc., etc, . .. It's a "use at your own risk" situation, but one can feel a bit more confident about it if one finds no news reports of bad side effects on the news or the internet.

Are there any negative affects in using Panax Ginseng in the long-term? (More than six months)

Are there any negative affects in using Panax Ginseng in the long-term? (More than six months)

There is no science: To support the use of Panax Ginseng although there are many claims of benefit across a broad range of human ailments. Long term ingestion has therefore not been studied. Like any herbal or nutritional product of this nature there is no guide to usage. Ask yourself, if it is as great as it is touted to be, don't you think everyone would be using it?

Do any of the following products by gnc, - arginmax, or horny goat weed, yohimbe, or panax ginseng- contain amphetamines, and methamphetamine s?

Do any of the following products by gnc, - arginmax, or horny goat weed, yohimbe, or panax ginseng- contain amphetamines, and methamphetamine s?

They can't: The answer is categorically "no way, no how! " to paraphrase the wizard of oz. The explanation is simple, anything with amphetamine in it would have to be a prescription drug and could not be purchased over-the-counter. On the other hand, anything containing methamphetamine and sold over-the-counter gets you 10-20 years in every state of the union last time I checked (unlike marijuana).

Is 1000iu the daily dosage I should be taking (vitamin d3) I'm currently also taking vitamin b complex & panax ginseng. I'm 23.

Is 1000iu the daily dosage I should be taking (vitamin d3) I'm currently also taking vitamin b complex & panax ginseng. I'm 23.

It depends...: This depends on how much vit d you get from the sun. In spring & summer about 10 minutes of exposure to midday sun allows us to make enough d if you don't use sunscreen. In fall & winter months most adults need 5-8000 iu/day to achieve optimal levels of vit d. Testing your d levels can help you determine your needs. See http://bit. Ly/1dc7vna for details.

Vitamin D level: Knowing your vitamin d level would be helpful. If you are deficient (and depending how deficient), you will need supplementation so that you can get your level back to normal. If your vitamin d level is normal, then you may want a maintenance dose. D3 is cholecalciferol, a standard form that is taken orally. D2 is ergocalciferol, if taken is in a large 50k international unit (iu) dose once weekly.

Are ginseng and protein helpful in pcos?

Are ginseng and protein helpful in pcos?

No: There are no otc supplements that will help with pcos> treatment is diet, exercise, weight loss and possibly medication such as metformin. Other medication is available for specific problems such as high testosterone. Protein "supplements" are just extra calories when you're trying to restrict your intake.
