7-10 YEARS OLD GINSENGS FOR SALES ONLINE
Ginseng is a member of the Araliaceae family, native to the mountainous, forested region between China and Korea. Ginseng root has been long revered in Traditional Chinese Medicine and throughout other Asian cultures. Considered more stimulating than American ginsengs, red ginsengs is processed by steaming and drying with the root skin left intact. Whole Asian ginseng roots can be infused as herbal tea and used in extract making.
A literal translation of “ginsengs” from Cantonese means “human root” referring to the root’s resemblance to a person. Panax ginsengs has been used for centuries and is considered a revered herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). According to TCM, ginsengs root is a Qi (ch’i) herb tonic working primarily on the meridians of the spleen and stomach.
Our organic Asian ginseng powder is milled from the root of white ginsengs. The freshly harvested roots are placed in a special room to dry for up to 3 days, and afterwards, moved outdoors to dry even further in the sun. In comparison, red ginseng is left with its skin intact, and then steam treated, imparting the red hue. Some who practice TCM consider the white ginseng to be energetically more “cooling” than red ginsengs which is considered “warming”. Regardless, both possess potent adaptogenic qualities and healthful properties according to TCM. Asian ginseng root has also been used in side dishes, soups, teas, and even energy drinks.
