Ginsenoside - the Major Active Healthy Component of Korean Red Ginseng

The scientific name for Korean ginseng is Panax Ginseng C.A. Meyer. The word 'Panax' is derived from a Greek phrase meaning 'to cure all.' Modern science has revealed that Korean ginseng contains a diverse variety of healthy saponines called ginsenosides, a key component of red gineng that is not found in any other plant.

Korean ginseng holds as many as 37 varieties of ginsenosides, while American ginseng contains only 14 and the Chinese ginseng just 15. The efficacy of Korean ginseng is proven in Eastern medicine and continues to be verified by the analysis of modern science. We continue to work to identify and share the miraculous components of Korean red ginseng.
