Traditionally used to enhance energy in periods of fatigue

Native to North America, American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) was first discovered in present-day Montreal in 1716. Traditional Chinese medicine clearly distinguishes between Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng) and American ginseng.

Organika's BC White Ginseng is used in herbal medicine to help relieve nervous dyspepsia and aid digestion in cases of nervousness or stress. The main active constituents in ginseng are ginsenosides, which can be divided into two classes. Compared to Asian ginseng, American ginseng contains significantly less of the ginsenosides responsible for increasing the body's ability to utilize adenosine triphosphate (ATP) during times of stress. American ginseng commonly contains ten times more of the ginsenosides responsible for central nervous system anti-stress activity than the ginsenosides acting as a central nervous system stimulant. Due to the compositional differences, traditional Chinese medicine supports that American ginseng offers a cooling yin effect which offsets the "heat" caused by the stress of noise and over-working.

Organika's BC White Ginseng Capsules may also serve as part of a therapy for the promotion of healthy glucose levels. Both the ginsenoside and polysaccharide constituents in ginseng have demonstrated hypoglycaemic activity. Simply take one capsule three times daily to experience a range of health benefits.
