Additionally, the therapeutic potential of KRG as an antiviral and vaccine adjuvant is discussed. The ginsenosides have antiviral effects against hepatitis B, norovirus, and coxsackieviruses, which are associated with several serious diseases — including an infection of the brain called meningoencephalitis.
