Tumor treatments are divided into many , few drugs fight the tumor without damage. It was not until 1980 that Japanese scholar Kitagawa first discovered ginseng saponin and proved that 20(S)-Ginsenoside Rg3 had a selective inhibitory tumor immersion and metastasis in 1993. People began to light up the fire of treating tumor.

20(S)-Ginsenoside Rg3

With the progress of science, the study of ginseng efficacy components has been further developed, more doctors do not advocate cancer patients directly use ginseng. Ginseng as a tonic, its ingredients are complex, most of the ingredients are the excellent nutrients cancer cells absorbed , only a small number of ingredients have anti-tumor effect, which is ginseng saponin composition, it is divided into many kinds, of which 20(S)-Ginsenoside Rg3 is the most significant, anti-tumor activity is the strongest and most stable, it has been proved by clinical phase four.

The study found that it has the effect of effectiveness reduction in the radiation chemotherapy, we all know that many people in the course of chemotherapy more or less have response, because chemotherapy caused some damage on other organs of the body, such as affecting the intestines and stomach, there will be vomiting diarrhea phenomenon, affecting white blood cells, there will be low immunity. for above phenomenon , long treatment of the disease will have an impact, the patient's body will also become more weak. Therefore, in the treatment of cancer will be regulated by traditional Chinese medicine.


Ginseng can strengthen the body's metabolism in most cases, showing an increase in diet, physical strength, immunity and so on. However, in addition to stimulating the body's normal tissue metabolism, ginseng also enhances metabolism for alienated cancer cells. In other words, under the stimulation of the ginseng (e.g. raw ginseng, ginseng, white ginseng, western ginseng, etc.), the vitality of normal cells and abnormal cells is mobilized, the consequences are terrible, because cancer cells are already much stronger than normal tissue reproduction. Cancer cells spread faster and die faster when nourished by ginseng. it shows that cancer patients are not suitable to eat the whole ginseng . 20(S)-Ginsenoside Rg3 as a monomer component of ginseng, for nourishing cancer cells - said to be completely non-existent.

So, although ginseng saponin rg3 is related to ginseng, the two are different after all.
