Two pieces, sometimes 3, weighing a bit less than 1oz.

Botanical Name: Panax ginseng

Origin: China

Standardized: Asian ginseng

Plant Family: Araliaceae

Red ginseng derives its name from the color that it takes on during a special preservation method that involves being steamed (and then sometimes sun dried) with the peel intact. Red ginseng usually always comes from China or Korea, and it is considered slightly stronger and more stimulating than white ginseng.

Parts Used

The whole root

Typical Preparations

Teas, extracts, or sometimes in capsules. More recently it has found its way into the energy drink market.


In Asia, wars have been fought over possession of fields where ginseng grew abundant and wild. Ginseng is a known adaptogen, which helps the body adapt to stress, and to help balance itself.


Specific: The use of red ginseng may potentiate the effects of caffeine and other stimulants.
