- Beneficial for those over 40 years old
- Popular in China as anti-aging and longevity tonic
- Beneficial for women with declining hormone levels
A little goes a long way, you can reap the benefits of American Ginseng with taking one capsule of high quality American Ginseng EXTRACT per day. If you buy an American Ginseng extract, you do not need to take a lot of pills and the herb is assimilated better than taking the raw Ginseng that is just chopped up and encapsulated. Chinese herbs are always taken as an extract. The herbs are boiled and the liquid is then either drunk as a tea, or processed into pills. Raw herbs are not as strong as extracts.
American ginseng is very useful for people over 40. It is not well known in America, but in China it is very popular as a longevity and anti-aging tonic. People often take herbal tonics to improve functioning as they age. As you age, there is a normal tendency to suffer from fatigue, memory issues and sleep issues. Chinese medicine theory is that this is due to a yin deficiency.
American ginseng is rarely used by most Americans. We sell most of the American ginseng we grow here, to China. The Chinese have a long tradition of using herbs to improve health and longevity. They tend to take herbs as they age to stave off the symptoms of aging.
American ginseng is surprising effective as a libido tonic. It is used as a “yin” tonic. As we age, we become deficient in yin. This affects our libido.
American ginseng can also be effective for women to reduce the symptom of dark facial hair. As you get older, your body suffers from a decline of all hormones, but in women it is the “yin” that affects us the most. American ginseng, in nourishing the yin, helps to restore what we lose as we get older. It is often taken long term on a regular basis to maintain health.
I personally take American ginseng extract almost every day. I take a top quality extract, so I only have to take one capsule. If more Americans knew of the effect American ginseng has on libido, we would run out of it… American Ginseng Root Extract or American Ginseng Root Extract. The American ginseng extract on Amazon seems to get sold out easily. I prefer the Bluebonnet or Solgar brands.
I would especially advise women to not take Korean Ginseng root. Korean Ginseng is too “hot” for women. It can easily cause you to have hormonal issues. You would then have to take yin tonic herbs such as American ginseng a long time to recover from that.
