Product No. P19353

The primary types of ginseng available are Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng), also called oriental, Chinese or Korean ginseng, American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) and Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus), which is not a true (panax) ginseng but is enough of a relative to provide many of the same benefits - particularly stamina and helping to lower cholesterol levels.

It is generally well accepted that ginseng is a stimulant of both mental and physical energy. The Chinese have been using it for nearly five thousand years and still revere it as a preventative and cure-all.

It is a mild laxative and helps the body pass poisons through more rapidly. It may also help reduce LDL cholesterol, improve circulation, alleviate discomfort caused by the menopause, normaize blood pressure and help cure colds. Purported to be an aphrodisiac for centuries, many women say that it does enhance their sexual desire.

The big nutritional plus for ginseng is that it helps you assimilate vitamins and minerals by acting as an endocrine-gland stimulant.
