Korean Ginseng is known as “the King of Herbs” for its remarkable healing properties.
Many studies have shown it to be effective in prolonging life and treating specific health issues like ulcers, inflammation, diabetes, high cholesterol, low libido and fatigue – to name a few!
In fact, Korean Ginseng has so many health applications that its scientific name is Panax Ginseng C.A. Meyer.
Panax means a “cure-all” in latin.
So which one do I buy?
Consumers are often advised to look for “6-year-old” certified ginseng products.
That’s because younger roots (< 6 years) do not offer the same healing effects – due to how the root produces and stores phyto-molecules called saponins.
When the root matures six years, it contains the highest amount of saponin.
At 7-8 years, the root begins to lose its potency.
What’s red ginseng?
Red ginseng is made by steaming and drying fresh white ginseng.
This process locks in the nutrients which would normally degrade in white ginseng over time.
That way, when you eat it, you absorb as much of its nutrition as possible.
For these reasons,Korean Red Ginseng is regarded as the most powerful ginseng and sells for a premium price.
Jung Won Sam offers 6-year-old Korean Red Ginseng as an easy-to-drink extract.
You can take it straight out the packet or mix it with hot water as tea.
