Korean Ginseng has been in use for over 5,000 years and is called the ‘King Of Herbs’ due to its energizing and revitalizing effects on the human body. Traditionally, Korean Ginseng had been used as a restorative tonic to increase stamina, restore energy, and relax the body after a long day’s work. Today Korean Ginseng is widely used all over the world to improve overall energy and vitality, particularly during times of fatigue and stress. Korean Ginseng is one of the best adaptogen in improving the body’s overall ability to adapt to and cope with the negative effects of physical and environmental stress.

Korean Ginseng is usually grown for 5 to 6 years before being harvested. The roots are usually cooked, preserved with honey, or steamed and extracted into a liquid form. Most Korean Ginseng in the west are consumed either in liquid or capsule form.

Clinical studies have shown that, ginsenosides (comes from the from roots, leaves/stems, fruits, and/or flower heads of ginseng), saponins (occur in many plant foods and get their name from their soap-like qualities, due to the cleansing abilities) found in Korean Ginseng roots can help enhance endurance, reduce fatigue, and improve coordination and reaction time. There is also evidence that Korean Ginseng can boost immune function, helping the body fight off infection during times of stress. In laboratory studies, Ginseng has shown potential in protecting liver and heart health, regulating the function of reproductive hormones, normalizing cholesterol and blood sugar levels, and improving memory and learning.
