Ginsana is the only natural medicine containing, in each capsule, 100mg of standardized ginseng extract G115, the most extensively studied ginseng in the world.
G115 is standardised to contain the optimal concentration of 4% ginsenosides, clinically shown to be the optimal amount of active compounds required to significantly improve energy, immunity and respiratory functioning.



Ginsana is clinically researched to improve energy utilization, by increasing the uptake and binding of oxygen to haemoglobin. By increasing cellular respiration, Adenosine Triphosphate ATP is more readily available for use by the body.5,11
As certified by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Geneva, and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), Ginsana does not contain any doping substance and does not cause dependence. Locally, Ginsana® is listed in the ‘’green category’’ of the MIMS Drugs in Sport (2017) publication (p.58 & p. 152): e/index.html



  • Increases oxygen uptake and binding to haemoglobin
  • Improves haemoglobin re-oxygenation and oxygen uptake in athletes: resting pO2 (oxygen in blood) uptake and transport of oxygen into the organs increased from 100% (baseline) to 129% after treatment
  • Raises general cellular activity (ATP) expressed as a pronounced increase in physical and mental capacities
  • Improves physical activity and is valid in time of physical fatigue
  • Improves physical efficiency (endurance)
  • Reduces recovery rate (reduce blood lactate levels) following physical exertion
  • Improves convalescence

Ideal for athletes, individuals looking to improve energy levels, as well as those who may fall ill and find energy levels lower than usual.




Ginsana, the source of natural energy to enhance immune system functioning throughout the year, particularly during the change of season.1,2,7,8,9
Optimal functioning of the immune system is critical to our health, as it is the primary barrier against viruses and bacteria, as well as other infective agents.
Ageing, stress, poor nutrition and sudden weather changes weaken the immune system. When this occurs, there may be an increased risk of contracting ‘’seasonal flu’’ a typical disease of viral origin estimated to affect adults 2 to 5 times a year.
Ginsana significantly supports and strengthens immune system functioning after illness; and assists in the recovery of fatigue and exhaustion often experienced with colds and influenza.



  • Reduces the risk of contracting influenza &/common cold threefold1,7,9
  • Reduces the duration and severity of influenza and colds1,7,9
  • Potentiates the effects of influenza vaccination1,7,8
  • Strengthens the production of immune system components, namely antibodies and modulating pro-inflammatory cytokines1,7,9
  • Significantly increases antibody levels (Ig A and Ig M)1,7,8
  • Significantly increases Natural Killer (NK) Cells2
  • Reduces bacterial count, due to enhanced macrophage and NK cell response and
    overall immune response (including S. pneumoniae and H. influenza) in patients
    undergoing concurrent treatment with an antibiotic (amoxicillin) compared to placebo2



Ginsana strengthens the efficacy of vaccination against common cold &/ influenza7

Three-arm randomized, placebo-controlled double-blind study; 227 participants
After 4th week of treatment, participants received an anti-influenza polyvalent vaccination








Ginsana supports and strengthens respiratory system functioning, and is beneficial in individuals with respiratory diseases who may fall ill frequently, and experience respiratory difficulty that may impact their quality of life.2


Ginsana improves pulmonary functions and exercise capacity in patients with COPD Double-blind placebo controlled study; 92 participants with COPD (G115 treatment, n = 49; placebo, n = 43)



Ginsana, G115, improves respiratory muscle strength as shown by an increase in FVC, PEF and MIP, and respiratory muscle endurance as reflected by an increase in MVV.
Ginsana, G115, treatment (for at least 3 months) induces an increase and improvement in pulmonary function in patients with moderate severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.


  • Reduces bacterial counts in the bronchial system of patients with acute attacks of chronic bronchitis
  • Improves pulmonary function, and oxygenation and exercise capacity (VO2 max) in patients with severe chronic pulmonary disease
  • Increases respiratory endurance and muscle strength and maximal oxygen consumption in patients with moderately severe COPD


Pulmonary function tests (PFT’s), Maximum Voluntary Ventilation (MVV) and Maximum
Inspiratory Pressure (MIP), Maximal Oxygen Consumption (VO2 max) studied at baseline, and every two weeks during treatment. 2 capsules of Ginsana or matching placebo daily, 12 weeks.


Baseline demographics and pulmonary parameters were similar between the groups. In the treatment group (but not the control group) all parameters significantly increased above the baseline and compared with the placebo group.
No side effects were observed. Patients suffering from COPD have a beneficial effect on respiratory function after Ginsana.2



  • Extensively studied Ginseng extract, G115, > 35 years of research
  • In the preparation of Ginsana, only selected white ginseng roots are used; these are harvested after 5 to 7 years growth ensuring optimal concentration of the active therapeutic components, namely ginsenosides
  • Excellent safety and tolerability profile
  • Negligible drug interaction profile
  • No effect on blood pressure
  • Safe for use by diabetics
  • IOC, WADA and MIMS OTC approval for use in sportspeople and athletes
  • Safe from 12 years of age
  • Ginsana is suitable for long-term use


  • Students (12 YOA and older)
  • Sports people
  • Seniors
  • Diabetics
  • People with high demanding careers
  • Asthmatics/Smokers



Adults: (12 YOA and older) :
2 capsules at breakfast, or 1 capsule at breakfast and 1 capsule at lunch (not to be taken after 16H00).
The benefits of Ginsana may be experienced quickly, however optimal results are achieved between 2 and 4 weeks (acute use) and between 4 and 12 weeks
(chronic use).
