Due to a larger enrichement with 0,5% of ascorbic acid, it is an excel-lent cellular as well as humoral activator of the cellular metabolism. Its full tonifying and vitality-stimulating effect has been obtained only after additing the Ginseng. As demonstrated in the following explanations, the denomination "Tonic" is therefore justified under every point of view.
Mode of action of main Ingredients: Considering it pharmacologically, Ginseng contains glucosides, panax acid and an essential oil Panacen, vitamins B1 and B2, estrogenic and sexually stimulating components as well as a glucoside Ginsenin, with a sympathotrophic effect, and mineral components with remarkably high content of sulphur (approx. 0,15%). Probably the tonic effect can be explained with the harmonic interaction of the partial components. How-ever, we attribute the tonifying effect so frequently mentioned by enthusi-astic therapists to the content of vitamin B1 (thyamine) and B2 (ribofla-vine) acting together with the I-ascorbic acid on the most important cen-tres involved in stress-situations.
A) Thyamin acts on cells with an elevated need of carbohydrates (nerve cells), cells with a metabolism based mainly on pyruvic acid (cardiac muscle cells), and nervous tissue that liberates acetyl-choline as the active substance, which transmits the nervous impulses from one nerve to another or on to the effector. Thyamine there inhibits the cholinesterase and increases the effect of acetyl-choline which is very important, as the acetyl-cholinesterase provokes the splitting up to the highly effective acetyl-choline in much lesser effective choline and acetic acids, as this enzyme has a very high ratio of velocities, the duration of the effect on acetyl-choline is very short.
B) Riboflavine can be found in a large amount in the retina, and most likely takes part in the process of seeing, furthermore it acts in different en-zymes, such as cytocrome dehydrogenase, aminooxidases and in the enzymes which are responsible for cellular respiration. Its presence in the retina seems to us the most important factor, as during stress-situations it has been noticed, that there is a decrease of the visual faculty, fogginess and irritations of the eye almost every time that they occur. So a well-timed supply of the corresponding vitamin prevents a pre-mature decrease of its level.
C) L-ascorbic acid is the activator of the entire cellular metabolism, in-cluding cellular as well as humoral processes, and becomes the real physiological tonic due to his tonifying and vitality-increasing effect, as a reducer, in the cellular metabolism it transfers hydrogen, respectively electrones, in a reversible process, taking part in the steroid-hormonal synthesis, vitamin C has great importance during stress-situations.
