A while ago I began drinking a little bottle of red ginseng extract every day, inspired in part by Simon Winchester's book on Korea where he claimed the stuff genuinely did good.

My report on the effects of Red Ginseng extract on me:

A bottle of Red Ginseng extract makes me feel as though I got a full night's sleep the previous night. It doesn't make me feel caffeinated, but I do feel less fatigued and sleepy-stupid.

For a while I felt that I feel most intelligent on Sunday, which is also the only day of the week I can sleep in to my heart's content. When I take ginseng, I feel like every day is Sunday.

Disclaimer: Yes, I know that "correlation does not equal causation", and there might be placebo effects at work. Who knows?
