Ginseng is one of the few herbs found world-wide in several different varieties. In the Orient, Ginseng is considered “King of the Herbs”. Like coffee, Ginseng is a stimulant that stimulates the entire body. It creates energy that aids in overcoming stress, fatigue, weakness and even mental fatigue. Some herbalists believe that Ginseng stimulates and improves brain cells.
Ginseng is good for the heart and helps improve circulation. It is good for leveling out blood-pressure, reduces cholesterol and prevents arteriosclerosis.
It is a good antidote for various types of drugs, poisons and toxins. In the East, it has even been used for the treatment of radiation poisoning. Ginseng is also used to improve vision, hearing, working ability and to have a calming effect to improve poise and composure.
