Notes for this study:
This study looked at 38 active adults and had them consume either 400 mg of ginseng or a placebo (lactose) daily for 8 weeks. Before and after the intervention, the participants exercise performance (power output and recovery heart rate) and saliva (to measure secretory IgA (SIgA, SIgA protein ratio). Secretory IgA was measured to understand the effect that Ginseng has on immunity within mucosal membranes.
