How it works

In Chinese Medicine, Red Ginseng Root is a key herb in tonifying Qi, blood, the lung, and the spleen, generating fluids, and calming the spirit and improving mental function. 

In Western medicine, Red Ginseng Root is an extensively studied adaptogen that helps the body adapt to mental and physiological stress. It’s known to increase energy and libido and prevent colds and flu. It’s also used in the treatment of high blood pressure, menopausal symptoms, diabetes, and cancer.

Fun fact: Ginseng is very popular and frequently used among athletes because of its ability to accelerate recovery of muscles after intense training, increase oxygen uptake in muscles, and improve performance.

How we use it

Ginseng is considered one of the most valuable herbal medicinals in Chinese medicine as a tonic for longevity. It’s one of the few classical Chinese medicinal herbs that is used as a single herb formula. I grew up with ginseng chicken soup which is not only viewed as food but food as medicine.
