100grams - From 8 Year Ginseng Root
Ginseng is a perennial plant and an adaptogenic herb which is native to some of the colder regions of China, Siberia and America. There are 11 different species of ginseng, with the Asian panax ginseng being one of the most nutritionally potent and popular varieties. Ginseng is made from the roots of the plant, and it is not ready to be used as a medicine until it has matured for a minimum of 6 years.
Prescribed in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for over 2,000 years, Asian ginseng is a much-loved natural supplement that boasts a range of rejuvenating and healing benefits. Our ginseng is sourced from a region in Northeast China which is famed for producing some of the highest quality ginseng in the world. All of our plants are at least 8 years old before the roots are harvested and transformed into a finely-milled powder that is ready to be used.
Health Benefits of Ginseng
Ginseng has a range of powerful health benefits. Although it’s most famous for its energy-boosting qualities, research has shown ginseng also displays potent anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties. It is classed as an adaptogen, which is a type of herb used to help the body better cope with physical, mental and environmental stresses.
Researchers at the University of Maryland state that "Asian ginseng may improve performance on such things as mental arithmetic, concentration, memory, and other measures”.
Ginseng in Traditional Chinese Medicine
From a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, ginseng is viewed as a potent tonic herb that is able to stimulate life force energy (qi) to both rejuvenate and invigorate the body. In Shen Nong’s classic book on herbalism, the Shennong Bencao Jing,ginseng is said to quiet the essence spirit, check fright palpitations, brighten the eyes, open the heart, sharpen the wits, and ultimately prolong life.
Ginseng Nutritional Overview
Many of ginseng's health benefits are due to the presence of ginsenosides, also known as panaxosides. Our high-quality Asian ginseng contains higher amounts of ginsenosides in comparison to both American ginseng and Siberian ginseng. Ginseng is also rich in a range of other active nutritional compounds including saponins, polysaccharides, peptides, B-vitamins, flavonoids, volatile oil and glycans.

How to Use Ginseng
Ginseng root needs to be brewed, stewed and strained in order to turn it into a palatable tea. We transform the ginseng root into a fine powder that is ready to use, so you can save time and simply dissolve it into a mug of warm water to make a tonic tea. If you prefer, ginseng can be blended into smoothies, shakes and juices. It will make a nutritious addition to protein bars and balls, raw chocolates, sauces, dips and more. There are many ginseng recipes for elixir drinks that include the use of other tonic herbs, medicinal mushrooms and spices.
Ginseng provides an almost instant pick-me-up, so it’s best to take it in the morning or throughout the day but not just before bed. If it’s your first time taking ginseng supplements, then it’s recommended that you start with a small dose that is less than half a teaspoon in size, and then gradually build up the dose to a full teaspoon per serving if required. It is best to take ginseng for a two to three-week cycle, and then take two weeks off before consuming the supplement again.
