Sometimes referred to as Siberian ginseng, eleuthero is not a true ginseng at all. Like Asian and American ginseng varieties, eleuthero is thought to stimulate the immune system and help to lower blood sugar levels.

Eleuthero is an “adaptogen,” which is thought to help the body cope with either mental or physical stress.
