The medicinal properties of ginseng have been known for so long, that centuries and civilizaitions went by, but people continued using this unique plant.

Gold bars

Ginseng is more valuable than gold

In the wild, the ginseng is a very rare plant which needs many years to ripen. The qualities of the plant improve with age, that is why people in the Far East have always considered ginseng as a treasure, and the older the root is the more powerful it gets.

In the old times, anyone who dared to pick ginseng roots had to deal with bad weather conditions, wild animals and difficult terrain. Thanks to its unique health-giving properties, ginseng cost as much as gold, so it was available only to a few very rich people.

A lot of ginseng pickers (rooters as they were called), once they found a young ginseng root, replanted it in the secret place deep in the forest, and grew those plantations for years or even decades. One such root could provide decent living for the whole family, the kids or even grandkids for generations to come.

So, what magical power did our ancestors see in the of the root?
