Herb of the Day: Ginseng

Herb of the Day: Ginseng with Female Formula and N R G

Ginseng is one of the most well-known Asian herbs.  It’s widely used in Asian medicine and has been nicknamed “Wonder of the World.”  This carefully cultivated and widely prized herb is known as an adaptogenic herb.  Adaptogens help to strengthen the body and increase the body’s ability to respond to stressors. Because of this, ginseng is gaining popularity in Western medicine as well.

The Plant

Ginseng belongs to the Panax genus and all varieties are fairly similar. American Ginseng prefers rich soil, lots of shade, and cooler mountain and slope regions.  Asian Ginseng is found in China, Japan, and Korea typically among mountain slopes.  Both grow up to 2 feet tall with deep taproots (it is the root which is typically used by herbalists).  Seeds can take up to 2 years to germinate and the plant cannot be harvested until the 5th year. Ginseng is an endangered plant in both American and Asia, wild harvesting should not take place.

KYOlivia says this about Female Formula:

My cramps are usually so excruciating I cant even get out of bed on the first day of my menstrual cycle (usually meaning i miss work, school or whatever is planned for that day). Since I’ve been taking female formula my cramps have become minimal. This product is another must for my cabinet along with lympha rub and soothing salve.”

Inna loves N R G:

“I got a sample ofN R G from the Healthy Living Bundle. This is like a magic potion for me. I have 2 little boys and was always exhausted and drained by the time breakfast was over. The second day of taking N R G, I felt energized and refreshed ALL day! absolutely amazing. Now I need to order more! Thanks!”
