Ginseng Health Benefits - You can’t argue with thousands of years of Chinese medicine.
Ginseng has been a mainstay in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years with claims to some surprising health benefits, including helping to fight fatigue. And although we developed Eagle Energy based on a decade of data, you could say we leaned into the centuries-old reputation of this ancient herbal plant when we included Ginseng extract in our formulation. Here are some of the most well-known ginseng health benefits.
Ginseng is a short, slow-growing plant with fleshy roots found in eastern Asia and North America. Like bell peppers, only different, Ginseng is classified as fresh, white or red depending on how long it’s grown. Fresh ginseng is harvested inside 4 years, white ginseng is harvested between 4 and 6 years, and red ginseng is harvested after 6 or more years. The key compounds in Ginseng that work together to provide health benefits are: ginsenosides and gintonin.
