LYC Korean Ginseng/Koryo Insam (Heaven 15)
Korean ginseng is a perennial rhizome. “Heaven” is the highest grade of Korean ginseng. Authentic Korean ginseng refers specifically to the ginseng produced on the Korean peninsula. It has a history of thousands of years in North Korea and has been widely planted in the Kaesong area since the Goryeo era. It is recognized by the world as the best ginseng with the reputation of being "the world's first ginseng."
Araliaceae plant ginseng with rhizome root is processed and steamed. It has the functions of invigorating vitality, nourishing and strengthening the body, promoting body fluid and quenching thirst, calming the mind, and improving intelligence.
Indications: It is suitable for people with palpitations, insomnia, physical weakness, heart failure, cardiogenic shock, etc.
Caution: Avoid use with fever; do not eat with veratrum (false hellebores) carrot or radish.
The real Korean ginseng is made from the ginseng grown for 6 years. There are two types, white and red ginseng, but the “Korean ginseng” usually refers to red ginseng. During the processing of red ginseng, a variety of other Chinese medicinal materials are used to increase its efficacy. The Chinese "Jungkwanjang" Ginseng is equivalent to Korean officially certified Korean ginseng. The processing and the types and proportions of other medicinal materials are kept secret. In other words, Korean ginseng produced in Korea is different from brands of ginseng of the same grade. This is caused by differences in processing and formulation.
The Chinese produced "Korea ginseng" which mostly uses the ginseng grown in Changbai Mountain. Since there is no strict age limit, most of them are 3-4 years old. There will be differences in the effectiveness of Chinese ginseng itself because the processing and medicinal materials will be different from South Korea. To be precise, it should be red ginseng made according to Korean processing methods, but it cannot be called "Korea ginseng." The heads are clearly distinguished. If there are less than 6, it must be domestic Chinese, not imported from Korea.
