This article needs some clean-up... It is just cheerleading siberian ginseng and supposed health benefits. One link doesn't work, the other does not make all these claims. Even so, it needs to be toned down a bit, IMHO. Kristan 17:05, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

There are some harmful interactions with this herb that need to be mentioned.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)
I've added a couple of points. I endorse Kristan's comment.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Nunquam Dormio (talkcontribs)

There is substantial research on the constituents and actions of Eleutherococcus. Most of them are Russian or Korean. There is also substantial information on the medicinally active constituents. I will be adding more information in the future. Ksvaughan2 03:26, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

The fact that most (all?) of them are Soviet or Korean (North?) should send you a message... Charles35 (talk) 02:45, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
What message might that be? Both countries are well-known for conducting research on oriental herbs. Did you mean that as the message? David Spector (talk) 00:28, 9 May 2013 (UTC)


I'm not a botanist but I have seen some references that state that Acanthopanacis and Eleutherococcus are the same plant. Can anybody verify this? And, if so, it might be a relevant piece of information to integrated in this description. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:15, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, neither am I, but I did what you suggested. I just went to the USDA GRIN page, checked out what they had and added the information to the taxobox (green box on the right), including the reference. We should probably add a REDIRECT for these two synonyms to redirect them to this article, so if someone searches under the other names, they will be redirected to this article.

- Just stumbled upon this article. Need to know: Which part of the plant is prepared for medicinal use? Leaves? Stems? Fruit? Flowers? Roots? Are any of these NOT to be consumed? Thanks.  — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:45, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

What is the correct way/s to pronounce "eleuthero"? And, could someone add the standard pronunciation key to the WP entry? thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:08, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Recent edits from IP concerning marijuana[edit]

Dear IP,

I see you have added a claim about this herb and its effect on marijuana withdrawal at least 3-4 times over the past 6 weeks. It has been removed each time. I see that you recently added a citation needed tag to it, so you must be aware of the original research policy. The problem is that it isn't okay to add anything in the world as long as you include a citation needed tag. I encourage you to find a source for the claim, and then add your material.

See here for the last time this material was added: [1]

I am going to remove it right now, again. Please do not add it another time without providing a reliable source. If you'd like to discuss the issue here, please do. I will answer any questions you have. Charles35 (talk) 03:15, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

IP, this is your last warning. If you continue to revert my edits, you will undoubtedly be edit warring. Please see here. Charles35 (talk) 05:44, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Since the above was written in response to edit warring from IP (Scottsdale, Arizona), other IP addresses that geolocate to Arizona have repeatedly added the same material without citation. For ease of reference, they are:,,,,,,, (Phoenix, Arizona),, (Peoria, Arizona), (Mesa, Arizona), (Glendale, Arizona). Sminthopsis84 (talk) 21:28, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

I like this article about eleuthero [Siberian Ginseng][edit]

I think some of the info there should be in this article.

Namely this bit: "eleuthero has been used extensively in traditional Chinese medicine for millennia, yet was barely noticed by the rest of the world until Russian researchers began studying it in the 1960's.2 In fact the term 'adaptogen' came from Soviet scientist, N.V. Lazarev, who, in 1947 coined this term when describing eleuthero's actions." (talk) 22:39, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
