American Ginseng Benefits For Longevity

Today I want talk about one of my favorite herbs of all time ginseng!  I want to take a close look at the American ginseng benefits for longevity.  So grab a cup of green tea, because we are going on a journey to discover the knowledge of the ancients.

What I’ve always found very interesting about ginseng is, that sometimes you can find a route that resembles a human body.  The Chinese believed that ginseng had curative powers and they called it the “man plant” or “manlike”.  The Amish that live in my area are very interested in ginseng and when I use to sell it at a health food store, it sold itself.  

I remember selling it for almost $60 a bottle and it was the most expensive Herb that I sold.  I became so interested in ginseng myself, that I bought seeds and planted them in a forest.  If you know what you’re doing and you have the right information you can grow ginseng.  As a matter of fact, you can make a lot of money selling ginseng per pound, because American ginseng is highly valued.

I used to take and chew on the ginseng root and it was pretty powerful!  Even if I put the ginseng powder under my tongue, I would get a burst of energy.  Not everyone seems to have a great experience with using ginseng, especially women, because I’ve been told that they get headaches from using ginseng.  But if you’re looking for an alternative to drinking coffee, then ginseng is your best choice.

Ginseng has been considered to be a cure-all, by the old master herbalist of the past and from my personal experience with using ginseng, it’s very effective!  From my own studies of many different Herbal volumes, I’ve found that ginseng not only boost the immune system, but it’s an excellent digestive aid, which may explain why it’s so effective against so many different types of ailments.

Another amazing quality of this herb is, that it is possibly able to help you live a longer life.  It seems to be able to help maintain the equilibrium within your body and keep your overall system healthy.  Being that it is a root, it is full of nutrition and will give you plenty of energy when you need it.  By chewing on the fresh root, which is available online (if you know where to look), it works as a preventative against getting colds.

Ginseng works wonders when it comes to being a stimulant as well and it gets all the body processes working, which helps maintain all of their functions.  It’s the perfect tonic to prevent stress and may be advantageous, if you work at a stressful job.  If you want to learn my herbal secrets and my superior garden tips click here!

Asian Ginseng – Medicinal Uses, Interactions, Side Effects, Dosage

Asian Ginseng

Asian, Chinese, Korean, or “true” ginseng are all common names for Panax ginseng, one of the world’s oldest known herbal medicines. The word Panax, of Greek derivation, means “all-cure” and gives rise to the word panacea. In Chinese, “ginseng” (schinseng) refers to the human-shaped figure of the root, which is believed to suggest powerful properties. White ginseng refers to the unprocessed dried root, while red ginseng refers to the steamed root, which is red or caramel colored.

Uses and Benefits:

Ginseng has been used for thousands of years in Asian countries to boost energy, relieve stress, improve concentration, and enhance physical and cognitive performance. It is claimed to be a general restorative, tonic, or adaptogen, which restores the body’s balance, enhances stamina, and increases resistance to stress and disease. Among many other claims, ginseng is also recommended as an aphrodisiac, for cardiovascular diseases, to prevent or treat cancers, and to prolong life. In traditional Chinese medicine, ginseng is used to restore the vital life force (qi or chi) in the body. Asian ginseng is considered more stimulating or heating (yang), while American ginseng is considered more calming or cooling (yin).


The triterpene saponins, commonly referred to as ginsenosides, are considered to be the main pharmacologic constituents of P. ginseng. At least 30 of these steroidal compounds have been described, based on their sugar side chains. The most abundant or important ginsenosides are Rg-1, Rg-2, Rb-1, Rb-2, Rc, Rd, and Rf. Like lipid-soluble steroid hormones,ginsenosides may insert into cell membranes and interact with membrane channels and proteins, or transverse the membrane to initiate genomic effects. In addition, polysaccharides, polyacetylenes, and other non-saponin constituents of P. ginseng have pharmacologic activity.

Hundreds of in vitro and animal studies, mostly from the Asian and Russian literature, have investigated the biochemical and pharmacologic activities of P. ginseng, and numerous properties have been described. For example, pharmacologic effects on the cardiovascular system (anti-ischemic, antiplatelet, vasodilatory), endocrine system (hypoglycemic, ACTH-stimulating), immune system (immunostimulatory, anti-inflammatory), and nervous system (CNS-stimulating and inhibiting) have been reported. Cytoprotective, cognitive, and anticarcinogenic activities are also alleged. Cytoprotective effects include resistance against ischemia, toxins, oxidation, and radiation.

Clinical Trials:

Fifty-seven randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were found in a systematic review of the worldwide clinical litera
