You probably know China is a Ginseng producer herself. And China is right next door to North and South Korea, both of which are major Ginseng producers...
So why do the Chinese want the American Ginseng so badly?
Well, Asian Ginseng and American Ginseng are different.
Asian Ginseng is generally warm in nature while American Ginseng is cool in nature. American Ginseng also helps the body produce body fluids. Therefore, American Ginseng is considered to be a Yin tonic.
American Ginseng is useful for people who are warm/hot but wish to take Ginseng. In other words, people who tend to have high metabolisms, lots of outward energy, are aggressive, have ruddy complexions, etc. can take American Ginseng without overheating.
Since it is a cooling herb which replenishes fluids, it is especially beneficial during a warm/hot weather.
Nowadays, many people now prefer a blend of American and Asian Ginsengs, with a shift in balance as the seasons turn, utilizing more American Ginseng in the warm months and more Asian Ginseng in the cold months.
In short, because of American Ginseng’s cool and moistening nature, it can be used safely by almost all people.
