Korean Ginseng contains ginseng from Korean origin, made from the root and the offshoots called root hairs.
There are several species of ginseng, all belonging to the botanical group called Panax, which means all heal' in Greek. Ginseng includes both American ginseng and Korean, or Asian, ginseng and only these types contain the active ingredient ginsenosides. American ginseng can be found throughout Northern America and is milder than Asian ginseng. Korean ginseng is also known as red or Asian ginseng and is the classic variant which has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. Ginseng is manly produced in South Korea, China, Canada and the United States.
Solgar Korean Ginseng properties are:
- ADAPTOGENIC - Korean Ginseng increases tolerance to various stressors and helps normalise the way in which the body responds to stress triggers and acts to regulat the manufacture and secretion of adrenal hormones. It also strengthens the adrenal glands themselves, which is especially important to those suffering from chronic stress.
- CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM STRENGTHENING EFFECT - Its adaptogenic activity provides non-specific support for the central nervous system, which may help restore proper neurological function after long term stress.
- IMMUNE TONIC - Studies show that ginseng enhances white blood cell activity, thus providing support to a compromised immune system. In addition, as stress suppresses immune function, the adaptogenic properties of this herb would even further promote resistance to infection.
- MILD STIMULANT - Korean Ginseng appears to be the most stimulating of all types of ginseng, which is in contrast to the calming effect associated with American Ginseng.
