Ginseng (Panax ginseng, latin, but derived from greek and chinese for ‘cure-all for human’) is any one of 11 species of slow-growing perennial plants with fleshy roots, belonging to the variety Panax in the Ivy family (Araliaceae). Ginseng is found only in the northern hemisphere, in North America and in East Asia, typically in cooler climates. Wild Ginseng is difficult to come by, which is why it is commercially cultivated. Red Ginseng is revered in China, Korea and Japan as a cure-all and, as a result, is one of the most expensive herbal remedies.

The root, once 6 to 8 years old, is dug out, dried and processed to a fine powder. In the east it is considered a so called ‘yang’ tonic, i.e. the energy flow of spleen and lung (meridians) is renewed. As bioactive contents, among other, have been identified glycosides of saponin characteristics, Ginsenine, Panax acid, plant estrogens and beta-Sistosterin, all of which contribute to its properties which stimulate the nervous system. Ginseng root reduces typical aging symptoms, sleep disorders and stress symptoms. Any program to improve performance typically takes from 3 to 4 weeks of daily use. Ginseng is also a well known (and expensive) aphrodisiac (enhances sex drive). For ultimate performance, it is often combined with Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus).

History: Marco Polo was among the first to report about the use of Ginseng.

Note: Do not use before surgery, as it may compromise anesthetics.

Dosage

Take 3-6 capsules daily, with plenty of water.
