American Ginseng Powder
American ginseng is native to eastern North America, but it is cultivated in many places, including China. The roots of American ginseng have traditionally been used by Native Americans for medicinal purposes. The major biologically active constituents of American ginseng are dammarane-type ginsenosides, or saponins. American ginseng has a very specialized growing environment and along with it’s high demand and the destruction of it’s environment, some American states have placed it on their endangered species scale.
