Ginseng, an undiscovered ingredient

Ginseng, an undiscovered ingredient

Perhaps many people have heard of it, but there are probably few who are aware of the properties that this plant has for our bodies. Ginseng is a medicinal plant that has been used in many cultures for a long time, and the Eastern culture is one of them. Because this attractive plant has a root rich in active ingredients that grows mainly in the cold areas and foothills of the mountains of China, Korea and Japan. 

Its properties include:

  1. It is an energetic ingredient: a great help in overcoming fatigue and tiredness, whether physical or mental. For this reason, a refreshing ginseng drink can be an excellent companion when we are carrying out tasks that involve work and concentration, as it also helps to improve cerebral irrigation.
  2. It is a powerful antioxidant: it helps us to combat the formation of free radicals and to strengthen our immune system by improving our defences and protecting us in cold weather. A ginseng to combat the autumn-winter season to come?
  3. It is an excellent regulator of high cholesterol: many people suffer from cholesterol, and ginseng is an excellent ingredient to help us combat it. It also helps people suffering from high blood pressure, anaemia or diabetes as it acts as a great blood sugar regulator.
