Ginseng for health
Siberian ginseng, Wild American ginseng
and Korean ginseng are among the most popular
ginsengs available today. All three benefit the
body and are available at most health food stores.
Siberian ginseng is a member of the ginseng
family that is most often used by herbalists
for the overall positive effect it has on the body.
Siberian ginseng is used to promote an overall
sense of well-being by enhancing circulation,
boosting the immune system, increasing energy
levels and helping eliminate fatigue.
Wild American ginseng gained its notoriety
in the 1700s, thanks to the less stimulating
effects it has on the body. Normalizing system
levels of the body, Wild American ginseng has
been used to lower cholesterol, increase
energy levels, and stimulate the immune
system. Wild American ginseng also alleviates
fatigue, relieves nervousness and reduces stress,
especially after acute illnesses.
Korean ginseng, also know as Panax, is the
most popular form of ginseng used today.
Korean ginseng contains adaptogens that have
been known to return the body's system levels
back to normal. By equalizing the system levels
in the body, Korean ginseng has been used to
lower cholesterol, balance the metabolism,
increase energy levels, and stimulate the
immune system. It has also been used to alleviate
fatigue and reduce nervousness and stress on the body.
