Panax ginseng is a well-known medicinal herb native to Northeastern Asia. Due to the many medicinalbenefits to humans, P. ginseng is cultivated and consumed in many countries. In deference to itsmedicinal attributes, the genus name is derived from the Latin word Pancea. There are two forms of P.ginseng; white ginseng and red ginseng. The difference lies in the process following harvesting. Whiteginseng is harvested and the root left to sun dry, where as red ginseng is steamed after harvesting andthen it is sun dried. For thousands of years, P. ginseng has been used an an adaptogen and restorativetonic. Through its adaptogenic properties, P. ginseng is able to provide non-specific support followingbiochemical or physical stresses. It is warm in nature and sweet or slightly bitter in flavor and is able toinvigorate “Qi”. Research has indicated active ginseng saponins inhibit leukotrine release, stimulateimmune activity in the aged, and inhibit cytokine production, COX-2 gene expression, and the releaseof histamine.
