Panax ginseng (also known as Korean, Asian, or Chinese ginseng) is a slow-growing perennial plant with fleshy roots. It has a history of traditional herbal use dating over 5,000 years. It mostly grows in northern China, Korea, and eastern Siberia, typically in cooler climates.
The genus name panax is derived from the Greek word “panacea” which means ‘all-healing’; panax ginseng is also said to translate to ‘wonder of the world’.
Chinese medical literature from the first century A.D. states that ginseng was used for ‘quieting the spirit, curbing emotion, stopping agitation, removing noxious influences, brightening the eyes, enlightening the mind, and increasing wisdom’.
The primary active compounds in ginseng are a group of triterpenoid saponins known as ginsenosides. Panax ginseng contains thirteen known ginsenosides, along with other constituents such as panaxans and polysaccharides.
