An investigation in the Phytotherapy Research Journal reports that the molecular basis of ginsenoside (Rg3), a constituent found in ginseng, has been shown to inhibit differentiation in cells that are used to store energy in the form of fat. In other words, Rg3 prevents cells in their ability to complete the fat storage process.

Another report looked at the effects of wild ginseng on leptin deficient mice (leptin deficiency is a condition that causes severe obesity in the first few months of life). Mice were administered orally 100mg/kg and 200mg/kg for four weeks. After the four weeks, when compared to the control mice, the mice showed a loss of body weight and a decrease in blood glucose levels.
