Korean Red Ginseng
The dominant active components of ginseng are
saponins (ginsenosides). Orally administered Ginseng saponins are not
decomposed by digestive enzymes, so they pass through the stomach into the
intestines intact. Saponins are hydrolyzed
by intestinal bacteria and then the
“metabolites” are absorbed through the intestinal wall into the
Recent research has shown that individual
differences of ginseng efficacy between individuals and between different
ginseng products is due to differences in the hydrolyzing ability of human intestinal
bacteria. Kinetic Ginseng (fermented
Korean red ginseng) has already been pre-hydrolyzed
by fermenting with appropriate probiotic bacteria. As a result, everyone consuming Kinetic Ginseng can expect equal efficacy from the ginseng.
This is the first and ONLY ginseng product in the world that is
assured of COMPLETE assimilation by the human body.
This is a huge breakthrough in herbalism. In
recent years, many people have been unable to fully digest and assimilate ginseng
because they do not have the appropriate digestive bacteria in their gut. This
pre-digested, fermented ginseng eliminates the need to digest the ginseng
within the human gut. It has already by “pre-digested.” As soon as
it reaches the intestines it is ready to absorb, and will be absorbed.
The organism used to ferment the red ginseng is
known as Hideo Hasegawa A22. It was
originally developed in Japan.
It is very similar to Prevotella
oris strains that were
originally isolated from the human gut and identified as the
major bacterial species possessing the ability to hydrolyze (digest) ginseng.
Many people have had the Prevotella oris strain eliminated by antibiotics.
Ginseng is extremely efficacious. Research at major
institutions in Japan and Korea found that fermented ginseng (e.g., Kinetic Ginseng) is a tonic for
restoring the body’s natural balance and for maintaining homeostasis. Asian
researchers believe that Kinetic Ginseng:
- enhances body
- supports cognitive
bi-directional adaptogenic activity (supports the body’s natural
balance and ability to withstand stress)
Ginseng is a
wonderful ginseng product that can benefit anyone. It is 100% assimilable and
provides a full range of ginseng saponins.
The Yin and
Yang of Ginseng – How Ginseng Is an Adaptogen
contains several unique active ingredients that are not found in any other
plants. The most important substances with bioactive properties are called ginsenosides. Chemically, several ginsenosides
exist and are classified in different groups, all of which contain an
“R” in their names. Each ginsenoside has its own special properties
and effects. There are two dominant types of ginsenosides: Rb (Diol type) and Rg (Triol type).
interplay of these two ginsenoside types creates the harmonic balance between Yin (passivity, darkness, slowness) and
Yang (activity, brightness,
Diol type saponins are Yin. They have the ability to calm the
human organism during times of stress and agitation.
Triol type saponins are Yang. They, on the other hand, increase
performance, and speed up reactions.
a result of these two interacting but opposing effects, Ginseng tends to
regulate functions in the body. It is therefore neither stimulant nor sedative
– it is both, or either, depending upon the needs of the body and mind
under different circumstances. This “bi-directional” action makes
Ginseng an adaptogen, a substance that automatically helps restore and maintain
balance in the body and mind, and reduces the stress response of both the body
Ginseng Differs from ALL Other Ginsengs on the Market
The active components of Ginseng, as
described above, are ginsenosides. Orally
administered ginsenosides (e.g., raw or extracted ginseng dietary supplements) are
virtually unaffected by either gastric juice or liver enzymes. Amazingly, the
absorption rate of ginsenosides through the intestines is very low. If you
don’t have the right bacteria in your intestines, the Rb and Rg
ginsenosides usually just pass right through the body.
However, if the ginsenosides
are hydrolyzed by certain intestinal bacteria, then the metabolites are
absorbed into the body. Therefore, an individual can expect maximum ginseng effectiveness
only when specific intestinal bacteria exist in the body
which hydrolyze the ginsenosides, enabling the body to use the ginseng.
Fully mature Korean Ginseng that has been
steamed to convert it to red ginseng, contains the
most ginsenosides of all commercially produced ginseng. Korean red ginseng contains
more than 30 known ginsenosides.
of the ginsenosides in Korean red ginseng are of the Diol Type and are thus Yin
of the ginsenosides in Korean red ginseng are of the Triol Type and are thus Yang in nature.
Red Ginseng not only contains Rg and Rb
ginsenosides, but also other forms, known as Re and Rc, as well as others.
These too require bacterial metabolizing to make them absorbable. These are
also metabolized in the process of making Kinetic
Ginseng, making all the ginsenosides
in Ginseng bioavailable.
inexpensive ginseng products, such as might be purchased at most health food
stores and convenience stores, are made from less mature roots (immature, by
Dragon Herbs standards) and have an awkward balance of ginsenosides that makes
the Triol Type (Yang) ginsenosides the dominant component. We highly recommend
NEVER consuming this cheaper grade of ginseng product. The balance is wrong and
ginsenoside-hydrolyzing (metabolizing) ability of intestinal bacteria varies
from person to person. These differences exist, in part,
based on a person’s physical condition and the varying patterns of
intestinal microorganisms that exist in a human body. Antibiotics kill off the
precise microorganisms that metabolize ginseng. Anyone who has taken an
antibiotic may be lacking partially or entirely in this or related microorganisms.
Therefore, many modern people cannot get the full benefit, if any, of ginseng.
And that’s where Kinetic Ginseng
Ginseng is equally effective in ALL people,
regardless of their ability to metabolize ginsenosides. Kinetic Ginseng is fermented during the manufacturing process by a microorganism
that metabolizes ginseng. This VASTLY improves the effectiveness of this red ginseng
over any other ginseng product in the market simply because of the improved
assimilation of the ginsenoside metabolites that are actually functional in the
