What is American Ginseng?
American ginseng – from the Panax quinquefolius plant – is a powerful medicinal herb that grows in North America. The fleshy roots of the herb have been used for thousands of years by Native American tribes to increase energy and treat pain, headaches, fever, and indigestion. This stress-busting herb is known as an "adaptogen" – a compound that helps you avoid burnout by regulating the body's response to stress.
American ginseng is still widely cultivated and used across North America and exported to other countries. It's a popular herbal tonic for supporting energy, stress tolerance, and immune health.

How it Works
American ginseng is a rich source of bioactive compounds called ginsenosides. These chemical compounds have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which exert immune-supportive, neuroprotective, and blood sugar-regulating benefits on the body.
Like other forms of ginseng, the American variety is a natural fatigue-fighter and energy-booster. It may help to enhance your physical and mental performance by protecting the energy powerhouses of the cell – the mitochondria – from oxidative damage to allow more efficient energy production. Studies have shown it's a promising treatment for fatigue in people with chronic illnesses.
American ginseng is one of the most popular natural remedies during cold and flu season. As a fantastic immune tonic, it may help you get through the winter months untouched! Studies show it reduces the incidence and duration of common colds and acute respiratory infections.
Research suggests active ginsenosides in American ginseng have neuroprotective and cognitive-enhancing effects, helping you to feel mentally sharp! It's great for students and people with mentally demanding jobs.
Ginsenosides in American ginseng may help to balance blood sugar levels. It may work by increasing the production and function of insulin, a pancreatic hormone that regulates blood sugar levels by encouraging the uptake of glucose into your cells to be burned for energy or stored.
