Ginseng is one of the most well-known botanical extracts used in traditional medicine. For centuries its health benefits have provided immunity and helped the body fight fatigue. Undoubtedly, Panax Ginseng root is the most recognized and studied adaptogen in the world. Panax ginseng is a slow-growing, deciduous perennial that is native to eastern Asia, primarily China and the Korean Peninsula. It has been used for at least 2,000 years. It is now rare in its original range but is cultivated extensively in China, Japan, Korea, and Russia. Panax ginseng is one of about a dozen species in the genus Panax, all but two of which are found in Asia.
As Panax Ginseng is very tightly linked to China and its traditional medicine, the country accounts for over 70% of the world supply.
The industry challenges : Adultaration linked to misbranded species, such as the adulteration of American ginseng with Asian ginseng, or vice versa, add/mixing or substitution of various ginseng plant parts. Ingredient purity : Ginseng growth conditions (shade, moisture of the soil, duration of cultivation – 3 to 5 years) create ideal conditions for opportunistic fungi and a fungal pathology. Farmers use a variety of fungicides and other pesticides on their ginseng to prevent root rot and related problems.
