Background and Use

American Ginseng was given the botanical name Panax, a word derived from the Greek word "Panacea" meaning "cure all," which demonstrates the importance of Ginseng in traditional medicine. Native to North America, Panax quinquefolius is now exported to Asia, where it has a different use from the native Asian Ginseng. It is valued in Asia for its yin properties, and is said to have a cooling effect. This cooling action is less stimulatory and more relaxing in comparison to Asian Ginseng, and is the reason why this gentler variety is often given to the elderly and children. Unaltered whole Ginseng root contains many constituents including recently discovered polysaccharides. The study showed that whole full spectrum products have superior activity on the immune system in comparison to products standardized to ginsenosides.

There are concerns that conventionally cultivated Ginseng is often contaminated with pesticides due to the growing conditions that are necessary. has tested 22 other brands of Ginseng and found 37% of them to contain significant amounts of a dangerous pesticide. You can be assured that our American Ginseng has not been subjected to these harmful chemicals.
