PLEASE READBoth Ginsengs (Asian and American) do not mix with Tea. Tea is contraindicated when taking Ginseng as it potentiates the stimulation and will create heat in the blood. The TCM guidelines for using Asian Ginseng should be applied to its American version. With long-term use it is best to reduce the dose from what is obviously stimulating to be a mixture with yin/blood tonics. Otherwise, if you are not very deficient in energy to start with Ginsengs can create enough heat to burn up yin. Basic blood tonics like Wolfberries could do the job. I have used American Ginseng and Panax/Asian Ginseng and there is little difference, virtually none. I know that in China they say American Ginseng is supposed to be more cooling and make these other differentiations, but I have a highly sensitive body and I cannot tell a significant difference. However, Eleuthero/Siberian Ginseng is noticeably different from both. It rides lower in the body -- more at the hips and legs
My doctor recommended American Ginseng for diabetes. He cited a study that suggested 2 tablets 2 hours prior to a meal, especially in the morning, helps lower blood sugar. He says that it might also help DM type 1. My numbers have been lower since using for 3 months. An added benefit has been extra energy throughout the day. This has been a good recommendation.
This ginseng really gives you that extra stamina. Have to gauge how much is best for you though, sometimes the recommended dose on the label can be too much, so better try and see then adjust to your needs within the recommended dose. I find I don't need that much really and is a nice benefit to get the additional energy.
Super good quality and very good absorbtion. It is very effective for fight with fatigue, it gives energy , boosts the immune system, decreases the stress levels and helps a lot to overcome diffrent forms of stress. I use american ginseng by NOW to improve my sport performance and I am completely satisfied with the results!
