American Ginseng

Ginseng was discovered more than 5,000 years ago in the mountain provinces of Manchuria. It was first 

used as food and later for its strength-giving and rejuvenating properties. In Asian medicine, ginseng 
has been used for over 2,000 years to replenish energy, build resistance, reduce susceptibility to 
illness and promote health and longevity.

American Ginseng was an important medicine for the people of the First Nations and was used in a number 
of different ways such as a tonic to strengthen mental abilities and to increase fertility. Since the 
18th century, American Ginseng has been primarily exported to Asia where it is highly valued for its 
perceived superior quality and sweeter taste.

American and Asian Ginseng differ in their chemical composition and each appears to have distinct 
biological effects. From a traditional medicine point of view, these two types of ginsengs are thought
to be complementary. For example, the Chinese perceive American Ginseng to be more yin meaning it is 
used to reduce ‘heat’ in the body. In comparison, Asian Ginseng is thought to be more yang meaning 
it is used to raise ‘heat’ in the body. Heat, in the context of traditional Chinese medicine, does 
not have the same connotation as it does in America.
