Increases energy and concentration, has anti-aging effects. Root
considered demulcent, tonic. Research suggests it may increase mental
efficiency and physical performance and aid in adapting to high or low
temperatures and stress. Ginseng's effect is called "adaptogenic":
tending to return the body to normal while increasing resistance to
adverse influences on the body. American ginseng differs from Korean and
Chinese panax ginseng in its cooling properties.
We have a wide range of loose and packaged ginseng roots. Our roots
are sent directly to our store from Wisconsin producers who are members
of the Ginseng & Herb Co-Op (GHC) where "Every ounce of ginseng sold through the GHC is tested to assure quality and purity."
