Asian Ginseng (Panax ginseng)

Adaptogen for immune support and to boost energy

This important adaptogenic plant once grew wild in the mountain forests of north China, eastern Manchuria, and Korea. Nowadays, it is mostly a cultivated crop, due to over-harvesting and habitat loss.

Use of the root as a superior tonic remedy has a long history in Asia, where it has been used for over 2,000 years as an aid for calming the mind, opening the heart, pacifying the soul, and extending life. 

Asian Ginseng has been widely studied for its normalizing impact on the immune system. Western herbalists also rely on this famed root to enliven the fatigued and calm the anxious. Among the adaptogenic herbs, this is considered the most stimulating, hence its association with energy replenishment.*
