Tell me the Benefits

According to Chinese medical records Siberian Ginseng has been in use for over 2000 years.  In traditional Chinese medicine Siberian Ginseng was used to prevent colds and to increase energy.

Traditionally, Siberian Ginseng has also been used as an adaptogen to fight against stress and fatigue, for increased endurance and memory improvement, as well as for overall well-being.

Siberian Ginseng is now widely used by herbalists and naturopaths to assist with nervous exhaustion or anxiety due to long-term exposure to stress. It has also been used as an energy-boosting tonic during times of tiredness and fatigue. Siberian Ginseng appears to alter many chemicals within the body, especially the ones involved in switching the body’s stress responses on and off and as such it is used as a natural ‘vibe check’  to improve wellbeing during times of stress.
