It has been shown to be stimulating and regulatory to both the central nervous system and to the endocrine system. It is the primary Qi tonic of Chinese tonic herbalism.
Panax Ginseng helps a person to adapt to all kinds of stress, and enhances endurance and resilience under stressful conditions. It has thus been termed an "adaptogenic" substance by scientific researchers. Panax Ginseng is also used to digestive and respiratory functions.

Ginsenosides specifically improve adaptability and are believed to help build muscle and endurance. Therefore Panax Ginseng is very popular with athletes. Panax Ginseng generally has a "warm" energy.
Most ginseng is good for men and women alike. The higher the quality, the more Shen (Spirit) a ginseng root is said to contain. Wild and Ginseng, is generally far superior to the cultivated, commercial varieties. However, there are a number of varieties of superb cultivated ginseng as well, the and effectiveness of wild Ginseng. The best of these are from Chiangbai Mountain, in Manchuria, and from North Korea. South Korea also produces superb ginseng. The Ginseng is known as “heaven grade.” Most commercial Ginseng is grown with chemicals. Beware of cheap Ginseng products, because they are often made from immature roots that have imbalanced chemistry.

Our most distinctive ginseng varieties are cultivated in the wild environment with minimal human intervention.
At the top are the delicate 18– mountain roots, which are grown from seed in the undisturbed soil of the famous Chang Bai Shan region of China. We also carry exceptional 10– mountain roots, which are grown in the mountainous forests of Chang Bai Shan as well. Finally, there is younger, 4– mountain-grown ginseng, which offers an exceptional value for practitioners or patients who are seeking a premium ginseng for common use. All of these ginsengs are grown by small family farmers in the original pristine mountain environment without any nutrients, fungicides, pesticides, or chemicals of any sort.
Discerning the quality of mountain-grown ginseng is a sophisticated art, and even most professionals in the field of Chinese medicine lack the expertise to discriminate between true wild and half-wild ginseng. In fact, it is estimated that over 98% of the ginseng that is sold as “wild ginseng” is not truly wild, but is rather the half-wild product that we offer. However, because most dealers and consumers cannot discern the difference between true and half-wild products, these roots generally cost between several hundred to several thousand dollars per root, reflecting the wild price. To the best of our knowledge, we are unique in the Western world because we buy and sell these products with honesty and authenticity. True wild ginseng is critically endangered, and our deep commitment to ecology restrains us from trading in true wild ginseng; however, you can rest assured that the half-wild ginseng that we offer is the finest quality ginseng that is ethically available, and our authentic representation of its origin makes this exceptional ginseng affordable enough for practical use.
The sale of our mountain ginseng directly benefits small communities of Chinese farmers in remote mountain areas. Mountain ginseng occupies a precious niche in the local ecosystem and economy of the Chang Bai Shan area in Northeastern China, and our direct supply chain brings a high percentage of all sales straight to the family farming communities.
