While a potential benefit of ginseng is its ability to impact blood sugar, that can also be a consideration for some. Naoki Umeda, M.D., an integrative medicine practitioner at the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Integrative & Lifestyle Medicine, explains that those with blood sugar level concerns should monitor their glucose levels closely when taking ginseng.

Umeda also personally cautions against taking ginseng if you’re trying to conceive, are currently pregnant, or are breastfeeding. In general, it’s always a good idea to check in with your health care provider before taking ginseng or any new supplement regimen. 

“Consult with your health care provider before you start taking ginseng, regardless your health status,” Umeda says.
