For nearly 5000 years, ginseng roots have been prescribed in their natural form for best results. The best ginseng are sold as roots and slices rather than powder, capsules or extract. The most active constituents of ginseng are "ginsenosides". As many as 18- 30 ginsenosides are found within a ginseng root. For economic reasons, manufacturers have started to "standardize" ginseng. Only some of the many ginsenosides are extracted from the ginseng roots to make standardized ginseng preparations. This manufacturing process alters the natural ratio and spectrum of the naturally occuring ginsenosides. By taking ginseng in root form, you are certain to be getting the full ginseng benefits. Ginseng is a very slow growing root which requires a special organic soil and climate conditions grow. Ginseng requires at least 7 years to reach maturity. Quality of the roots are determined by several factors : age, place of origin, size ( length AND girth), the crown/head, amount of rootlets or nodes and skin appearance.
