Ginseng as an anti-allergic treatment.
A recent study on Ginseng extracts at the College of Pharmacy in Kyung Hee University, Seoul, Korea indicated that when ginsenoside was incubated (anaerobically) with human fecal microflora, all specimens metabolized ginsenoside and produced compound K.
Compound K exhibited the most potent antiallergic activity on the IgE-induced cell line as well as potent cytotoxic activity against tumor cell lines.
