Ginseng possesses unique active ingredients through plant saponins called ginsenosides. When they were discovered during the 20th Century by Japanese and Russian scientists they began to catalogue them which caused an explosion of research, resulting in over 5,000 published clinical and research studies to date. This number continues to grow, with work by scientists in other countries, most notably America and Germany.
Ilhwa’s research has revealed that Ginseng has many other key ingredients in addition to ginsenosides which work in combination to provide such a remarkable effect. These are phenols, lipids, 18 essential fatty acids, 6 vitamins, 7 amino acids, 8 essential amino acids, fatty acids, and 18 minerals, including organic germanium and polyacetylene.
Modern western science now accepts ginseng as an adaptogen; a term meaning that the herb increases the body’s resistance to stress such as trauma, fatigue and illness. Most importantly, it restores the body’s natural balance.
