History Of Ginseng
Korean Red Ginseng (KRG) has been used for centuries for medicinal purposes. In the 16th Century, kings, emperors and
wealthy households used ginseng medicinally. (KRG) is one of the most unique species in the world. (KRG) was referred as the
"hot herb" because of its capabilities to restore and reenergize the body. Asian legends claim this "man-root" was a symbol of
human health, promoting long life, fertility, and many other beneficial properties to the overall well-being of the human body.
(KRG) was worth its weight in gold. It was so revered that wars were fought for the control of the land in which it thrived.
Koreans have been trading ginseng for more than 1,500 years. Till this day, Korea has been producing the world's highest quality
Must Be Cultivated In Korea
As a delicate root, the growing environment is important. Korean Red Ginseng (KRG) is grown in the Korean peninsula
surrounded by an ocean. The Korean peninsula is the only place to grow red ginseng because red ginseng has very selective
biological requirements for the plants growth. Some factors include temperature zone, plenty of rain in the summer, proper
coldness in the winter, fertile soil and other special conditions. The cultivation process of particular (KRG) has been the same for
over a thousand years and till this day is still grown 100% organically. Ginseng only comes in a few varieties; Korean, American,
Chinese and Siberian. Korean ginseng is considered to have the most powerful varities from its significantly longer growing
periods, as well as the local cared for soil and quality control, local regulations and regulated supervision. (KRG) has the world's
highest standards for the roots. Ginseng produced in other places like China and Hong Kong are often counterfeited with
questionable fillers and are grown in very questionable earth. American ginseng, while having good earth standards, has only
half the variety of healthy components (called ginsenosides and healthy saponins) and is typically industrialized for mass
production using very young roots, lacking health-promoting qualities. Generally, they are used as an added-value ingredient for
marketing purposes in cheaper products like energy drinks, rather than produced for maximal health.
6 Year Grown
Korean Red Ginseng (KRG) is so unique and superior to any other types of ginseng, simply because of how (KRG) is planted, preserved and processed. This herb takes a lot of
patience and dedication and it is considered to be valuable and expensive as it takes 6 years to grow matured roots and then has a 10-year waiting period prior to the next crop being
planted. This is required in order for the soil to have adequate nutrients for the ginseng to survive and successfully grow. A 6 year grow also allows, the ginseng to fill with many vitamins
and natural minerals. Only when Korean Ginseng is 3 years old does it blossom with flowers, which will then bloom and change into fruit. The fruit will change from green to red and
when the flesh is removed seeds will emerge. Seeds are gathered when the root has matured to a prime of 4 years of age. As the root reaches 6 years of age; the optimal harvesting
age of Korean ginseng, the rhizome, main root and lateral roots will have grown into the shape of a man. Ginseng comes from the Korean word insam, meaning man root ( root like a
shape of man).
Unique Shape of the Ginseng Root
In the prehistoric times, ancient herbalist believed plants grown that bear a resemblance to a certain body part of the human body, were
meant to restore that body part. Considering Korean Red Ginseng (KRG) root has an unique physical appearance as a human person, this
herb becomes a powerful and unique herb that is capable of treating the entire human body. (KRG) grows with a cluster of bright red berries
and dark green leaves. The shape of Korean Ginseng undergoes a process of transformation as the roots develop. The age of the ginseng
plant can be determined by counting the number of stem scars on the rhizome. The thicker knob-like body branches into leg-like
appendages, giving it the rough impression of a human-like figure. (KRG) has a root system which includes a rhizome head, main root, and
lateral roots from which numerous fine roots develop.
Why is Red Ginseng so powerful and therapeutic for Humans?
It is observed and closely studied that Korean Red Ginseng (KRG) exhibits extremely adaptogenic qualities and benefits to the human, as
the ginseng simply seems to improve the overall well-being of a person. This is because (KRG) is composed of molecular components
called Saponins, which are naturally concentrated phytochemicals, composed by the plant. These healthy plant components exist as part of
the plant's immune system and when consumed are passed along into humans which will then help activate cellular functions in the body.
Specifically, Saponins produce an active compound called Ginsenosides, which is a class of steroid glycosides where its key medical
benefits reach out to the central nerve system, endocrine system, immune system and can also aid the metabolism. Ginsenoside groups
Rg1 and Rb1 are the main active ingredients, which have good health giving effects on the human body. They are found nearly exclusively in
(KRG) and makes this species very unique. Ginsenosides have powerful adaptogens that help the body cope with stress and increase
protein synthesis and activity of neurotransmitters in the brain. (KRG) stimulates the formation of blood vessel and improves blood
circulation in the brain, thereby activating cellular functions in each of the different systems in the body, while also improving memory and
cognitive abilities for the person.
How is Red Ginseng Extracted?
After the 6 year growth period, Korean Red Ginseng (KRG) is carefully handpicked and selected. Fresh (KRG) is then steamed with the skin intact, (to
ensure the most nutrients possible) ginseng roots are processed using a slow, low temperature heating method to ensure preservation and efficacy.As
the herb is in the steaming process, the starch of the ginseng begins to gelatinize, increasing the amount of Saponin content. Ending result of the
gelatinize starch causes the ginseng color to change from a white to a deep red. To have the purest extract of (KRG) 70% of the ginseng is extracted from
the body (maximum extraction from the root) and 30% from the lateral roots. The Steaming process eliminates all known side effects, making it easy to
digest, absorb and therefore can be suitable for all ages including children. Unique anticancer substances and antioxidants that can protect our bodies
from harmful free radicals are produced during the steaming process and are only found in (KRG).
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, studies have shown that ginseng can benefit people with conditions such as diabetes, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder,
cancer and the flu. It is generally consumed to help strengthen the immune system and help the body's overall function.
It has been researched that (KRG) contains 32 different types of Saponins, quadruple the amount of leading ginsengs. (KRG) is cultivated and grown at least 6 years because this
allows for the highest levels and optimal concentration of Saponin and Ginsenosides production in the skin..
