Abstract: The active component of ginseng (Panax quinquefolius and Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer), is believed to be dammarane type triterpenoids also known as ginsenosides. They can be generally classified into two main groups based on the attached sugar moieties on either position C3 or C6 of the ring structure. There are differences in biological activities attributed to these minor differences in chemical structure. The objective of this review is to focus on the burgeoning interest in the effect of ginseng and ginsenosides on the reduction of risk or risk factors associated to the risk in metabolic abnormalities such as insulin resistance and the metabolic syndrome. For example ginsenosides have been reported to interact with adipocytes and influencing lipid acquisition and increase adiponectin release that can modulate and improve overall metabolic risks. © 2012 by Nova Science Publishers, Inc.
