What is Ginseng?
Ginseng is an herb comprised of a light colored root, a single stalk and long oval green leaves. It is the main source of ginsenoside, polysaccharides and phytoestrogens. Ginsenoside is believed to act as an adaptogen - a natural botanical substance that helps normalize and regulate the body's systems.
What are the benefits of Ginseng?
Both American and Panax or Asian ginseng, and their roots in particular, are used throughout the Far East, the Americas and the Caribbean for their adaptogenic potential to reduce stress and enhance mental acuity and physical vitality.
Chinese nutritionists also believe ginsenoside effectively regulates insulin, thereby reducing blood sugar and boosting the immune system. In addition, ginseng is a significant source of antioxidants, known to prevent the formation of cell-damaging free radicals.
