Ginseng racine adaptogène

Ginseng is used as a general tonic for the recovery of "jing" (vital energy) as well as for the relief of fatigue. It thus has stimulating effects on the body, helping to improve physical performance and libido. Ginseng reduces muscle pain and helps during recovery. It also helps protect the body against disease.

Ginseng, which means "root of long life", is a highly respected plant in Asia and has been used medicinally for millennia. More specifically, its root is exploited as a natural tonic and aphrodisiac. This plant needs a growth of almost 6 / 7 years to be able to be exploited at best. Several species are commonly referred to as "ginseng". The two most commonly used Ginsengs are Asian or Korean Ginseng (Panax ginseng) and American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius). Panax species are often considered the "true" ginsengs. Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus), sometimes called "eleuthero", is not of the same genus, but it comes from the same family.
