The statement highlights the role that Nerve Growth Factors (NGF) and Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factors (BDNF) play in reducing neural inflammation and oxidative stress. Adaptogenic herbs such as Notoginseng can help to stimulate the production of these molecules, promoting blood flow to the brain and neutralizing free radicals to prevent cellular damage.
Notoginseng, otherwise known as Panax Notoginseng, is a perennial herb that grows naturally in China and Japan. The plant is rich in saponins and flavonoids which complement the body’s natural biological processes. Research suggests that it is effective in treating cardiovascular conditions, lowering cholesterol, and regulating the immune response. Some scientists believe that chronic fatigue may be caused by an overactive immune system.
Dr. O’Bryan points to a 2022 study published by Frontiers in Nutrition which showed how fermented Notoginseng leaves improved exercise endurance, reduced oxidative stress, and displayed significant overall anti-fatigue properties. Another paper by the Foods journal showed Notoginseng to be effective in the reduction of metabolite accumulation and improving energy metabolism management.
