Eleuthero is a shrub native to Asia formerly known as Siberian ginseng. However, although the plant is a distant cousin of Panax ginseng, it does not contain ginsenosides.

For this reason, also also in compliance with the US Ginseng Labeling Act of 2002, the herb is no longer called Siberian ginseng but is referred to as eleuthero or, in Chinese medicine, as Ciwujia (Ci Wu Jia).

eleuthero root

Eleuthero, once called Siberian ginseng, is an Asian shrub that has been used for centuries in the traditional healing systems of China and Japan. Although the herb is still referred to by its former name, eleuthro is only distantly related to the Panax genus of “true” ginsengs and does not contain ginsenosides. In fact, the plant is a member of the ivy family.

The herb does contain several active compounds, however, including a number of antioxidant polyphenols. The root also contains a compound called syringin that stimulates the production of acetylcholine, which triggers increased insulin release from the pancreas. For this reason, use this herb with caution if you take pharmaceutical medications to lower blood sugar.
