Ginseng can stimulate the central nervous system, speed up nerve impulses, and maintain balance in the cerebral cortex. When administered in a small dosage, ginseng can contract the heart like a cardiac glycoside or cause blood pressure to rise slightly. It can also lower blood sugar and regulate cholesterol metabolism, which is why ginseng is effective for the treatment of diabetes and for lowering the level of blood cholesterol. In addition, ginseng can also increase the ability of macrophages to ingest and destroy microorganisms, which means it can increase the level of the body's immune functions.
