Botanical Name: Panax quinquefolius
Traditional Usage: American Ginseng has been used in Native American traditional medicine by almost every Indian tribe where it grows wild. The really astonishing fact is that Indian tribes of North America used wild American Ginseng in much the same manner as the Chinese used Asian Ginseng to promote health, general body vigour and also to prolong life. American Ginseng root is adaptogenic which means that it enhances the body's resistance against various sources of stress and enhances physical and mental energy and stamina*.
This American Ginseng Extract is prepared from dry Panax Quinquefolius roots which are certified organically grown. To assure optimal extraction of American Ginseng's bioactive compounds, the roots are hand-harvested in mid to late autumn, are carefully shade-dried, and are then thoroughly extracted. Herb Pharm's American Ginseng is never fumigated or irradiated.
