It can also be referred to as Panax Ginseng and it is a fleshy root which is found in climates which are cool mostly in the northern hemisphere. North America, China and Korea are the areas it is mostly found. They are remedies which boost organism resistance of harmful factors which could either be physical, chemical or biological.
The main ingredient found in Ginseng is ginsenosides. The leaves and stem of a Ginseng plant contain ginsenosides but the highest concentration is in the roots. The ginsenosides found in the roots of a Ginseng plant are around 29. In a body of a human there are steroid compounds and they are similar to those that can be found in a Ginseng plant. Even though it is from the same family, Siberian Ginseng is different.
In Ginseng there has recently been found a component known as germanium and it has shown to be a powerful detoxifier which is found in products which are organic. Germanium cleanses the blood powerfully.
Immediately after taking ginseng it is advisable to do exercises as this will expel prana which is already used up and it facilitates the intake of fresh pranic energy.
The original name of the Ginseng plant in Chinese is ‘ Ren Shen’ while in Korean is ‘In Sam’ because it looks exactly like a human being.
Several years pass before the Ginseng plant matures and most roots are harvested when they are between 3 and 10 years. If not harvested for a long time cultivated Ginseng degenerates but the wild ones can grow for many years without it regenerating.
If a Ginseng plant has grown for at least 6 years then it is considered to be mature and it then has medicinal value. If you harvested Ginseng before six years it cannot be used as it does not have ingredients of healing in them.
A harvested Ginseng is usually white/ off white. The colour of the final product depends on the process of drying it. The colour the red Ginseng has was gotten by it being dried in the sun in the past. Just as in the past the red Ginseng has the same colour although nowadays it is steamed during processing. By steaming it the red Ginseng is made powerful as it concentrates and amplifies it’s healing energy making it unique. For healing purposes in the past Asians only used the red Ginseng.
The white Ginseng is considered to have less medicinal value than the red Ginseng.
It is also highly effective in replenishing the vitality of the body and it makes someone look younger.
