Eleuthero (Siberian Ginseng) Supplements: Information
Eleuthero (el-LUTHER-oh) supplements are prepared from the Asian herb Eleutherococcus senticosus. This herb is also known as Siberian Eleuthero or Siberian Ginseng. Although not a true ginseng, it is used in much the same way as Asian ginsengs; as an adaptogenic herb, one able to help the body and mind better cope with stressors of all kinds.
Eleuthero's Health Benefits

Side-effects and Cautions:
None noted. Consult your doctor or pharmacist before using eleuthero with medications or if you have a health condition.
