1. Ginseng

OK, so maybe you don’t have ginseng growing in your back yard, but ginseng is fairly easy to find and it’s been used for thousands of years to treat many of the symptoms of aging, by both the Native Americans as well as the ancient Chinese. The two most common types of ginseng are American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) and Korean, or Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng). Although they are similar, Asian ginseng is thought to be more stimulating and has been used as a restorative health tonic for the elderly.

Hundreds of studies show that ginseng is great for the heart, regulates cholesterol and blood sugar levels, as well as lowers blood pressure. It also can increase energy levels and enhance the immune system. Ginseng also increases blood flow to the rain, which enhances nerve development, which can lead to an improvement in cognitive function, according to research done at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center.
