Ginseng – the most precious plant among herbs

For many thousand years, mankind has been using various plants as nutrient, beverage, cosmetics, dye and medicine to maintain health and to improve quality of life.

In Asia, particularly, ‘Panax Ginseng’ (named by C. A. Mayer) is considered to be the most precious plant among herbs, and ginseng has been in the spotlight worldwide.

Ginseng has long been used in the Far East, particularly in Korea and China as a respected herbal medicine in maintaining physical vitality.

The genus name Panax (Pan = all + axos = medicine) means ‘cure all’ (literally ‘all heal’) in Greek.

The herbal root is named as ginseng, because it is shaped like a man, and is believed to embody his three essences (i.e. body, mind and spirit) and is known as the lord or king of herbs.
