American Ginseng can provide the strengthening and immune-enhancing effects of Korean ginseng, without over-stimulation. This is thanks to its higher levels of ginsenoside Rb1, which has a sedative effect on the nervous system. Therefore, it is more suitable for the young, elderly and stressed. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, American Ginseng is considered a Yin tonic that is cooling, Qi-tonifying, yet non-stimulating. These properties have made American Ginseng the most popular supplement for urban dwellers whose fast paced and energetic lifestyles may call for a more calming and balanced herb with all the benefits of Korean ginseng.
