Ginseng’s numerous active ingredients make it one of the most highly sought-after superfoods.
There are many types of this herb, but the most popular are American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) and Korean ginseng (Panax ginseng). American and Asian ginseng vary in their concentration of active compounds and effects on the body.
Within the ginseng family, Korean ginseng reigns as the most efficacious, given its high concentration of its two significant compounds: ginsenosides and gintonin. These compounds complement one another to provide numerous health benefits.
