Ginseng cycling


Taking Siberian Ginseng and effects are wearing off after 20 days (as per the russian study i later found out).
Can I now hop onto a real ginseng such as korean?  Or do I need to take the two week break before starting again
Basically can I take it year round swapping from one to the other as they’re not technically the same plants/herbs at all?

Hi Pierre,
You are right, Siberian and Korean ginseng are two totally different plant species although they both were named "ginsengs". The active components for each are different, hence you can alternate both of them if you want to cycle their effects.
Best regards,
