༄ Qi Tonic, Adaptogen ༄
American Ginseng is a highly prized adaptogen that has been used traditionally by Native Americans as well as Chinese herbalists. Like Asian and Siberian Ginseng, American Ginseng contains high concentrations of Ginsenosides that are tonifying, highly antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immuno-stimulatory. American Ginseng is also powerfully adaptogenic, helping to promote healthy energy metabolism and endurance, while simultaneously calming the body and mind. It's considered to be cooler in nature, less heating to the body constitution than Asian Ginseng, and is generally suitable for long-term use, even by young people. Plus, the older roots contain more potent Ginsenoside levels.
Interestingly enough, studies have indicated that heated or steamed American Ginseng produces greater effects than raw Ginseng, affirming that Hot Water extraction is a valuable method for obtaining the medicinal constituents from the plant. Our 10:1 Hot Water Extract provides the potency and efficacy of a well decocted tea in a highly concentrated and instantly water-soluble, powdered form.
