This ancient remedy is truly a panacea for the ages. Famous throughout China and Korea for its ability to boost energy levels, promote wellness and reduce stress, it has to be the most notorious of all mother nature's great healers.
Ginseng (in this instance Korean Ginseng - not to be confused with American Ginseng) is one of eleven different varieties of very slow growing, short, shrub like plants that comes with a fleshy root. It has been harnessed and utilised for well over 5,000 years for all kinds of goodness.
What is it really good for though? The clue, in this instance is in the name. Panax Ginseng gets its particularly pleasing title from two sources. Ginseng comes from the Chinese rénshēn which means 'person' and 'plant root', a reference to the fact that its roots look like human legs. While Panax is Greek, and where we get the term panacea (a heal all) from.
The name Panax Ginseng comes from the Greek for Panacea Used for over 5,000 years by ancient Chinese medicine
While the exact origin of Ginseng seems to be a keen point of contention amongst some, what is commonly held to be true is that it was discovered in the mountains of Northern China (what was then Manchuria) around about 5,000 years ago. Although, it was probably initially thought of as a simple source of food, it didn't take long before people started to recognise its medicinal potential.
The first records of which came from China around 3,000 years ago. The Ancient Chinese Canon of Medicine states that ginseng "strengthens the soul, brightens the eyes, opens the heart, expels evil, benefits understanding and if taken for prolonged periods of time will invigorate the body and prolong life."
What's incredible is that all of that is still true today. Over 3,000 years later and Swanson Korean Ginseng is still the remarkable healer it once was.
For some, the fact that that Ginseng (vaguely) resembled the human body in shape was enough evidence that it had been sent from the earth to protect and revitalise us. For other, more sceptical folk, a litte more evidence was required.
Fortunately there is a stack of evidence from studies which comprehensively establish a link between Korean Ginseng and a range of positive benefits.
