Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus or Hedera senticosa), also known as devil's bush, has a long tradition in China as a means of balancing yin and yang. While the leaves of the plant can be prepared as a tea, the root is rich in eleutherosides.
The eleutherosides in Siberian ginseng are varied in their classification: the eleutherosides B4 (sesamin) and E (liriodendrin) are both lignans, while eleutheroside B and C are glycosides, B1 a coumarin and A a sterol. The eleutherosides I through M are triterpene saponins. Our Eleutherococcus root extract has a standardised content of 1.8% of eleutherosides B and E.
