Bisphenol A (BPA) is commonly found in hard, clear plastic bottles and in the lining of cans used for canned food. BPA is an endocrine disrupting chemical that mimics estrogen in the body. It is associated with heart disease, diabetes, obesity, infertility and polycystic ovarian syndrome. A recent study suggests that the herb ginseng could help protect against BPA. . . .

Researchers gave 22 women suffering from PMS either 2.7 grams of Korean red ginseng or a placebo for two weeks. They found that the ginseng significantly reduced urinary BPA, suggesting that ginseng can protect against BPA  (BMC Complement Altern Med 2014;14:265).
