What is Ginseng and what does it do?
Ginseng is a slow-growing, short plant with fleshy roots that can be classified three ways, depending on how long it is grown: fresh, white or red. There are many types of this herb, but the most popular are American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) and Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng). We use the latter, as it is known to have an invigorating effect. Asian ginseng is native to the Far East, including China, Korea, and far-eastern Siberia. It has been used for health-related purposes in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years - to improve physical stamina, concentration, and memory; stimulate immune function; slow the aging process; and relieve various other health problems, such as respiratory and cardiovascular disorders, depression, anxiety, and menopausal hot flashes*.
