Korean Ginseng

Korean ginseng (Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer) is the most emblematic herb of traditional Asian Medicine.

And while its reputation as a tonic, aphrodisiac and elixir of longevity dates back several millennia, the benefits of this ancient panacea remain more relevant than ever in the field of medicinal plants.

A Sourcing Nightmare

In recent years, word of ginseng’s extraordinary health benefits has spread across the globe, leading to an unprecedented explosion in demand.

But like any highly sought-after and valuable botanical, ginseng’s success comes at the price of serious supply and sustainability issues - making it increasingly challenging for meticulous brands to source high quality ginseng.
