What is Ginseng root?
Ginseng root (Panax) – the name Panax comes from Greek and means “all-healing” – which best describes properties of this plant. Common names include: “the divine herb”, “the world’s miracle”, “the root of life”, “the salt of the earth” and “the life elixir”.
In ancient China, it used to be available only for the emperor and his court. Commoners would pay with their lives for the attempted robbery of this plant. Scientific research and literature state, that using ginseng may positively influences almost every system in our organism. It may be used by healthy people as a prophylactic.
Ginseng contains over 200 active substances. It is difficult to find such an amount in other plants. One of the most important substances is ginsenosides, which increase the ability of hemoglobin to bind oxygen to it. Thanks to this, the body may has greater possibilities in terms of mental and physical effort, as well as convalescence.
Ginsenosides (also known as macromolecules) consist of two parts. The first is sugar (in the form of glucose or galactose), and the second is steroidal. Ginseng roots also contain numerous vitamins and minerals, which make it a supplement to a daily, healthy diet. Thanks to its properties, it is used in products that fight infections and support the body.
