The root of ginseng reminds one of the human body and is said to support overall health and strengthens the immune system.
It contains carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, minerals and other beneficial substances.
Ginseng usually grows in the shade; the plant dies under strong sunlight. European weather conditions are suitable, but its cultivation is extremely difficult.
The roots of the herb are ground into a powder and used as-is or in capsules.
Use is not recommended for pregnant and nursing women, nor children under 3 years old.
