The secrets of ginseng
This week, we’re discovering Ginseng! We’ve included Ginseng in our Immune Capsules, so let’s dive in and get to know this popular herb.
Herbal traditions of ginseng
The roots of Ginseng plants have been used as herbal remedies for centuries in Asian countries. In Chinese medicine, Ginseng has been used traditionally to strengthen the body and provide energy.
Ginseng: Did you know?
Such was Ginseng’s popularity, that control over ginseng fields in China and Korea became a political issue in the 16th century.
Stay cool with ginseng
Ginseng is generally found in cooler climates, including the Korean Peninsula, the Russian Far East, Northeast China, Canada and the United States.
It is believed that American ginseng works more as a relaxing agent, whereas the Asian variety has an invigorating effect.
Ginseng's dietary delights
Ginseng root can be added to your diet in a variety of ways. It can be eaten raw, stewed in water to make a tea or be added to various recipes like soups and stir-frys. The Ginseng extract is often found in powder, tablet, capsule and oil forms.
The nutritional power of ginseng
Though it's bitter in flavour, Ginseng packs a real nutritional punch! Ginseng has been shown to support the immune system and help protect against oxidative stress.
