Product Description

American Ginseng Drops is now available in 8 oz. refill bottle at a more affordable price (by the oz.)

American Ginseng is a member of the ginseng family that is native to North America. American Ginseng is extremely popular in Asia. It contains saponins similar to those found in Panax Ginseng (Asian ginseng) as well as dozens of unique saponins. American Ginseng is considered to be a Yin tonic herb, especially nourishing to the lungs, skin and stomach. Because of its cool and moistening nature, it can be used by most people, and even by those who do not tolerate Asian Ginseng well. We use premium grade Wisconsin cultivated Panax quinquefolium roots, all personally selected and approved by Ron Teeguarden each autumn. All ginseng roots have been growing in the ground for at least six years to assure maturity and balanced saponin content.

How to choose, American Ginseng OR Asian Ginseng?

It is not exactly the same herb as Asian Panax Ginseng. Though it is used in much the same way and with many of the same attributes and goals in mind, American Ginseng is also somewhat different in its actions from the Asian varieties. Like Panax Ginseng, American Ginseng is an adaptogen and a Qi tonic. It thus provides energy, adaptability and heightened alertness, but it is NOT a stimulant. It is especially appreciated for its endurance increasing capacity. In contrast to Asian Ginseng which is generally warm in nature, American Ginseng is a Yin tonic and is cool in nature. The cultivated American Ginseng roots used to make our American Ginseng Drops is cultivated and is very high quality.

In China American" Ginseng is highly regarded for its ability to promote the healthy secretion of body fluids. American Ginseng is useful for people who are hot but wish to take Ginseng. In other words, people who tend to have lots of energy, high metabolisms, are aggressive, have ruddy complexions, etc. can take American Ginseng without overheating. In fact, taking American Ginseng will help to balance out heat and dryness in the lungs and stomach. American Ginseng is said to moisten and cool the lungs.

American Ginseng is also extremely popular among people who live in warmer climates. Since it is a cooling herb which replenishes fluids, it is especially beneficial during hot weather. American Ginseng is more widely used in southern China than Chinese Ginseng. However, in the north where the winters are cold, Chinese Ginseng is still favored. 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.

This concentrated extract of high grade cultivated American Ginseng roots provides all the benefits associated with this great tonic herb.*

Origins and History

It may surprise many Americans to know that there is one American herb that can only be found on the American continent and yet it is more popular in China than it is in the United States?

That herb is American Ginseng, a precious root that grows natively in the northeastern United States and part of Canada. It is widely used in Asia to promote mental and physical performance.

On Feb. 22, 1784, a cargo ship named Empress of China officially launched the US export to China when it sailed out of New York Harbor loaded with American Ginseng, silver coins, furs and other goods. The nearly 30 tons of American Ginseng aboard this ship was owned by John Jacob Astor, who became America’s first tycoon (the equivalent of a multi-billionaire). On Aug. 23, the ship sailed up the Pearl River in South China to Canton (now called Guangzhou). After the ship’s triumphant return from China, a congressional resolution was passed to encourage more such ventures. Taxes and profits from this trade helped launch the United States government.

Between 1820 and 1903, the United States exported a total of 17 million pounds of American Ginseng to China.

Famous Early Americans and American Ginseng:

Today, American Ginseng in China is as popular as ever. People consume it in every possible way – as a tea substitute, in drinks, in soups, in capsules, as pills and as chewable “candy.” One of the most popular ways that Chinese people consume American Ginseng is extracted in alcohol. Alcohol extracts many important constituents from Ginseng that water alone cannot extract. American Ginseng is a very popular gift during holidays. Chinese tourists visiting the US are always on the lookout for 100% authentic American Ginseng to bring home as souvenirs and gifts.

In recent years, the United States produces about 750,000 pounds of cultivated American Ginseng each year, and 80% of that is exported directly to Asia. 95% of the American crop comes from Wisconsin, the modern authentic (Di Tao) source for cultivated American Ginseng.
