Panax Ginseng Extract
According to ginseng botanical specialist Dr. Shiu Ying Hu, ginseng “represents the vital spirit of the earth.” Vital is certainly the word that comes to mind when you think of Panax ginseng, also known as Asian or Korean ginseng. It has been used as a traditional herb in Asia for thousands of years and hundreds of scientific papers have been published exploring its uses and benefits. Panax ginseng is considered a premier adaptogen known for its longevity, energy-enhancing and sexual health benefits (particulary for men). It can promote whole body stamina and may be especially beneficial for periods of physical or mental fatigue.
Authentic certified organic Panax ginseng standardized to ginsenosides is not widely cultivated or easy to find, but we did! We use both the well-known root and the leaf/stem of authentic C.A. Meyer Panax ginseng grown in Asia. Known as “white ginseng,” our high-quality root is cultivated for 4-6 years prior to harvest then naturally dried after peeling. Although used less commonly, the leaf/stem of Panax ginseng also contains ginsenosides and is shown to be less stimulating than American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius), and to bring cooling and nourishing effects. Like the root, our Panax ginseng leaf and stem is certified organic, and fully tested for identity and purity including heavy metals, microbial contamination, pesticides, and residual solvents. With the combined root, leaf, and stem, you receive the full energetic and biochemical spectrum of the Panax ginseng plant, standardized to contain 10% of an array of ginsenosides.
