Ginseng seed oil ameliorates hepatic lipid accumulation and

Despite the large number of studies on ginseng, pharmacological activities of ginseng seed oil (GSO) have not been established. GSO is rich in unsaturated fatty acids (UFAs), mostly oleic and linoleic acids. UFAs are known to exert therapeutic effects in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). In this study, we investigated the protective effect and underlying mechanisms of GSO against NAFLD using in vitro and in vivo models.
