ABOUT GINSENG

Ginseng is a human shaped root that is one of the most popular healing herbs in the East and West and has been used as a general tonic to combat weakness and give extra energy. Ginseng, prized for millennia, has an ancient history with a wide range of therapeutic uses. The genus name Panax is derived from the Latin word "panacea" meaning "cure-all" and named by German scientist C.A. Meyer in 1842.

Since the 1940s, ginseng has been one of the most highly researched herbs in the world. It is known that there were more than three thousand scientific studies done on ginseng. Results of many high level health studies throughout the whole world are proving that ginseng possesses a large variety of therapeutic effects on the body including benefits to the central nervous system, cardiovascular system, stress (mental and emotional), fatigue, aging, etc. It is known as a "miracle herb".

In recent years, ginseng has been promoted in the West as a tonic and a rejuvenator. Although more research needs to be done, there is strong evidence that ginseng has many positive effects on the body and the mind.

Ginseng species includes Panax ginseng (Korean ginseng), Panax quinquefolius (North American ginseng), Panax japonicum (Japanese ginseng), Panax notoginseng (san-qi ginseng), and Panax pseudoginseng (Himalayan ginseng). Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus) is actually not a true ginseng species, but the properties and uses of all of these are similar and are generally referred to as ginseng.
