Product Details

One quarter ounce, cut and sifted.100% Certified USDA Organic & Kosher.

American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius), boasts a history deeply tied to North America. European settlers first encountered it near Montreal after which it was being heavily exported to Asia, particularly China, where ginseng held a revered position in traditional medicine. This intense wild harvesting throughout the 19th century pushed American ginseng towards vulnerability, with many states now implementing regulations to protect its wild populations.

Medicinally, American ginseng contains compounds called ginsenosides that are believed to offer a range of health benefits. These include potential positive effects on blood sugar regulation, immune function, and cognitive health.

Beyond medicinal purposes, American ginseng has found a place in some magical traditions. Its forked root structure, often likened to the human form, has led to associations with vitality and longevity and has been used as a less expensive substitute for whole Mandrake root. In some practices, it might be incorporated into rituals or carried as a charm to promote overall well-being and good fortune.
