Ginseng: Back to its Roots
The Root Of The Ginseng Plant Has Become One Of The Most Prized Ingredients In Chinese And Herbal Medicine

Since it was discovered over 5,000 years ago, the root of the ginseng plant has become one of the most prized ingredients in Chinese and herbal medicine. It has been dubbed the “King of all Herbs”, and was so treasured in ancient China that its use was exclusively reserved for the privileged elite.
Here are a few facts about this unique plant, and the root that has been hailed for its health-affirming properties for thousands of years, both by Chinese herbalists and Native healers in North America.

• The ginseng plant grows only in the Northern Hemisphere, primarily in the cooler climates of North America and eastern Asia (Korea, the Manchuria region of China, Bhutan and eastern Siberia).

• The English name “ginseng” is derived from the Chinese term “rénsh?n” —rén meaning “man” and sh?n meaning “plant root” — due to the fact that the root of the plant often resembles the human form.

• Similarly, the Native American term for the plant, “garantoquen” translates to “like a man”, again referring to the human-like form of the plant’s prized root.

• Ancient healers believed that the human-like shape of the root indicated that it would act as a tonic for the entire body.

• The botanical name of the plant, “Panax” is derived from the Greek root meaning “cure all” or “all healing” and is related to the word panacea.

• Ginseng is known as an “ataptogen” which means it is a botanical that can help improve the body’s ability to adapt to stress and bring the body back to a healthy, balanced state.

• In Chinese herbal medicine, ginseng is used in many preparations to help with a wide range of conditions. Primary uses include stimulation of circulation, mental function, performance or endurance, and balancing or improving the function of the adrenal gland.

• Recent studies have indicated that ginseng could also help control blood sugar levels in people with Type 2 diabetes.

Organo Gold has infused the incredible benefits of Panax Ginseng into their Gourmet Café Supreme, which means that today, obtaining the renowned benefits of this ancient medicinal root is as easy as drinking a smooth, delicious cup of coffee.
