Plant Description: Red Chinese Ginseng is a perennial plant native to the mountainous forests of eastern Asia and cultivated in China, Korea, and Japan. It has a thick, spindle- like brown-yellow root, often divided at the end. It's stem is a simple glabrous type and bears a whorl of three or five compound leaves. The leaves are oblong-ovate, finely double- toothed. Red Chinese Ginseng blooms from June to August. The greenish-yellow flowers are umbrella-shaped with small, edible drupe-like red berries growing from the center. The root is the part of the plant used. Wrinkles around the neck of the root tell how old the plant is. This is important because ginseng is not ready for use until it has grown for four to six years.
Use: 15-30 drops in water or juice, 2-3 times daily, or as needed.
Cautions & Interactions: Keep out of reach of children.
