What is Ginseng ?
Ginseng is the most famous Chinese herb, and is the most widely recognized plant used in
traditional medicine. Various forms have been used in medicine for more than 7000 years.
Several species grow around the world, and though some are preferred for specific benefits,
all are considered to have similar properties as an effective general rejuvenator.
Ginseng is found only in the Northern Hemisphere, in North America and in eastern Asia
(mostly Korea,northeastern China, and eastern Siberia), typically in cooler climates.
It is native to China, Russia, North Korea, Japan, and some areas of North America. It was
first cultivated in the United States in the late 1800's. It is difficult to grow and takes 4-6
years to become mature enough to harvest.
Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus) is in the same family, but not genus, as true ginseng.
Like ginseng, it is considered to be an adaptogenic herb. The active compounds in Siberian
ginseng are eleutherosides, not ginsenosides. Instead of a fleshy root, Siberian ginseng
has a woody root.
