Manchurian Thorn Tree (Aralia Mandchurica)

Aralia Mandshurica, also called Manchurian Thorn Tree, is Thought to Increase Energy

It is an adaptogen, found and used in Russia for many years. The extract of Aralia was approved for official therapeutic use in the Soviet Union in 1957. This plant is said to benefit the mind and body by helping with stress, anxiety and fatigue. The Aralia Mandshurica is also purported to stimulate the immune system and stamina. Athletic performance is also thought to improve . Like another adaptogen Eleutherococcus, Aralia Mandshurica is believed to stimulate the central nervous system, more effectively than other adaptogens. Most of this stimulation comes from the liquid extract of Aralia Mandshurica. Because it affects the central nervous system and is stimulating, this plant helps to increase energy, work capacity and memory.

Some think that Aralia Mandshurica helps patients when recovering from serious illnesses, prevents lipid metabolism disorders, decreases high cholesterol and increases the production of phospholipids.

Adaptogens are said to help balance a person’s body and mind. Although Aralia Mandshurica is an adaptogen that works well to stimulate the central nervous system, other adaptogens can also help with your metabolism, lungs, kidneys, memory as wel as a whole host of other things. In fact, many believe it to have numerous benefits, including alleviating ulcers, jaundice, and even coughs and colds.

This herb works in synergy with other plant ingredients to stimulate the central nervous system, which helps improve immune system function and increase stamina. The Aralia species contain some ginseng-like triterpenoid saponins (Aralosides A, B, and C), which contribute to Aralia’s ability to increase athletic performance.
