Buy Fresh Ginseng Root

American and Asian ginseng vary in their concentration of active compounds and effects on the body. According to some older research, it is believed that American ginseng works as a relaxing agent, whereas the Asian variety has an invigorating effect (2).

One study in 12 active males found that short-term supplementation with American ginseng extract reduced exercise-induced muscle damage and decreased markers of inflammation compared to a placebo (7).

A larger study in 2014 followed 71 postmenopausal females who took 3 grams (g) of red ginseng or a placebo daily for 12 weeks. Antioxidant activity and oxidative stress markers were then measured (8).

Ginsenosides in ginseng seem to regulate inflammation, provide antioxidant protection, and maintain the health of cells, which could help decrease the risk of certain kinds of cancer. Nevertheless, more research is needed.

Various animal studies have linked some components in ginseng, like polysaccharides and oligopeptides, with lower oxidative stress and higher energy production in cells, which could help decrease fatigue (28, 29).

Another 8-week study showed that taking 3 g per day of American ginseng significantly reduced fasting blood sugar levels and improved hemoglobin A1c, a marker of long-term blood sugar control, compared to a placebo in people with type 2 diabetes (36).

It seems that fermented red ginseng could be even more effective at blood sugar control. Fermented ginseng is produced with the help of live bacteria that transform the ginsenosides into a more easily absorbed and potent form (37).

In fact, a 2014 study demonstrated that taking 2.7 g of fermented red ginseng per day was effective at lowering blood sugar and increasing insulin levels after a test meal, compared to a placebo (38).

American ginseng, scientifically known as Panax quinquefolius, is an herbaceous plant commonly used in traditional medicine. The use and cultivation of ginseng spans across centuries and is still prominent in North America and Asia today.

Ginseng is a wondrous species, as I have learned through the work of twenty-four virtual interns participating in our online American ginseng field school. So, here are the most surprising things I learned about American ginseng.

Because of its popularity in China, there is a major market for American ginseng. While cultivated ginseng runs for about $50 a pound, the prices for wild, older roots are almost unimaginable. One pound of dried, wild ginseng sold for up to $800 in 2018. An ounce of ginseng powder had a value of $150 that same year. On eBay, one person has advertised their distinctly human-shaped root for a whopping $3,800. Another has listed less than three ounces for $10,859!

The stories and associations of American ginseng have predominantly consisted of white men, but female diggers have always existed, as girls were taught to seng alongside their brothers. In fact, female diggers are just as passionate about ginseng.

Today, the Hmong make up a large percentage of American ginseng farm workers, primarily in Wisconsin. Some families even own their own farms. Unfortunately, the stories of these traditional farmers may soon become a thing of the past, as their children become college graduates and have little interest in continuing the tradition.

Now, American ginseng is listed in Appendix II of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. In an effort to preserve this valuable plant species, groups such as United Plant Savers in Ohio and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are working diligently to protect wild ginseng populations for generations to come.

Panax ginseng is a member of the Araliaceae family, native to the mountainous, forested region between China and Korea. Ginseng root has been long revered in Traditional Chinese Medicine and throughout other Asian cultures. Considered more stimulating than American ginseng, red ginseng is processed by steaming and drying with the root skin left intact. Whole Asian ginseng roots can be infused as herbal tea and used in extract making.

Panax ginseng, a member of the Araliaceae plant family, is a deciduous perennial that grows wild in the mountainous terrain between China and Korea. Ginseng can also be cultivated. Our organic ginseng root powder is ground from ginseng grown in the fresh air of ChangBai mountain in Jilin province, China. These treasured roots are collected in five-year growing cycles beneath shaded hoop-houses. They are traditionally harvested in autumn and processed according to strict quality standards.

Computed tomography (CT) scanning has begun as a useful aid in medical diagnosis and through the advancement of computer technology and equipment, its use has expanded to high-cost agricultural products, such as ginseng, for the non-destructive study and evaluation of their internal quality. Since the quality of raw ginseng plays a major role in the manufacture of high quality red ginseng, assessing the internal tissue has become a necessity.

Currently, raw ginseng is only graded based on its exterior qualities assessed by the naked eye. Thus, an evaluation method that reflects the interior quality as well as the exterior characteristics is needed. This is particularly important for raw ginseng used to make high quality red ginseng for which the grading process of the internal tissue must be noninvasive. In addition, the results of the inspection of the internal tissue of raw ginseng should be expressed numerically to facilitate an automatic grading system.

Red ginseng is graded as heaven, earth, good and so on, according to both its external appearance and the quality of its internal tissue. The prices of red ginseng are greatly affected by the grade determined by both external and internal factors, underscoring the necessity of a grading system that helps in the selection of fine raw ginseng. At the moment, there is no suitable evaluation method. Kim et al. [2] reported on the chemical characteristics of normal and defective red ginseng, and Lee et al. [3] assessed histological characteristics. However, these assessments are not sufficient to facilitate selection of the best raw ginseng.

Reagent was made by dissolving 0.5g of iodine and 0.5 g of potassium iodine into a small quantity of water and then adding water to make 1 L. Five grams of fresh ginseng was placed with the reagent in a test tube and gently shaken to facilitate color development. The stained sample was washed once with water and observed on eye.

CT scanning was originally established by Sir Godfrey Newbold Hounsfield, one of the principal engineers and developers of computed axial tomography [1]. CT scanners present density in Hounsfield units (HUs), which range from -1,000 to 1,000. Hard bone or plaster equals +1,000 HUs, while air is -1,000 and distilled water is defined as 0. The density of raw ginseng with compact tissue measures between -200 and 100 HUs, with the core density registering the lowest. This is thought to be the result of ginseng repeating a cycle of taking from storage and re-storing it as the root grows. On Fig. 1C, the CT density analysis of normal ginseng shows annual rings.

On Fig. 3A, the cavity filled with air on the CT scan is assigned a value of -1,000 HU. Compact areas without a cavity are measured between -200 and 50 HU. The cortex of raw ginseng with a cavity measured -179 to -233 HU, while that of raw ginseng without a cavity measured -181 to 75 HU less than the specimen with a cavity. The HU value at the center of the xylem was as low -220 HU in both cases. Cavities measured approximately -1,000 HU, making them distinguishable on the CT images.

Inspection of ginseng with an SEM and an optical microscope revealed fissures in the xylem tissue that had not been seen in the macroscopic observations. Partial deformation of cells was also observed. A portion of raw ginseng had a relatively compact tissue that was observed in the CT images (Fig. 6). In addition, cell structures were observed for each part of raw ginseng (Fig. 6A; C, X1, and X2).

Fig. 7 shows raw ginseng with relatively non-compact tissue due to a cavity, as observed with a CT scanner. Cell structures were observed in parts C, X1, and X2 in Fig. 7A under an electron microscope and an optical microscope.

Fig. 8 shows a starch-containing cell (S) and a nonstarch cell (SN). Fig. 8B shows SN magnified by 2,000 times, and Fig. 8C shows S magnified by 1,000 times, respectively. Fig. 8D shows a cell and a non-starch cell. In the tissue with a cavity, the number of stored starch particles was either low or there were none (Fig. 7). In Fig. 6, compact tissues of raw ginseng indicate a directly proportionate relationship between the assigned HU values and the amount of stored starch [10,11]. Fig. 9 presents the correlation between tissue patterns in raw ginseng and the quality of the red ginseng made from it. Raw ginseng with a density ranging from 100 to -198 HU was used to create compact red ginseng tissue. Raw ginseng with a cavity that measured -900 to -1,000 HU (similar to that of air) resulted in red ginseng with a cavity. Raw ginseng that measured -650 to -785 HU at the center resulted in an un-reddened area inside; the inside was white. Raw ginseng with a small cavity in the center averaging -480 to -571 HUs resulted in an uncolored area and a small cavity in the red ginseng. 041b061a72
