Ginseng is our story
Ginseng is a type of slow-growing perennial plant that belongs to the genus Panax in the family Araliaceae. The term Ginseng is derived from the Chinese rénshēn, which means “person” and shēn, which means “plant root.” The genus name Panax means “all heal” in Greek and shares the same origin as “panacea.” The genus was so named by Linnaes who was familiar with its application as a muscle relaxant in traditional Chinese medicine. Ginseng possesses compounds known as ginsenosides and provide various benefits such as:
- Natural Adaptogen
Ginseng is natural adaptogen that helps the body resist the damaging effects of physical, chemical, or biological stressors and restore normal physiological functions.
- Healthy Energy Boost
Helps fight fatigue and enhance physical activity by lowering oxidative damage and increasing energy production in cells.
- Improved Focus
Ginseng contains promising cognitive enhancing properties that may improve focus and cognitive abilities.
