In Chinese, Ginseng means "man-root" or "man essence." It is so named because the root often grows in the shape of a man and its medicinal qualities are believed to benefit the whole man. This intriguing herb is thought to be one of the most valuable in the world.
White ginseng is the root of the Panax plant that has been processed for therapeutic purposes. Ginseng has been used for thousands of years in China to promote good health. Today, white ginseng is one of the most popular herbal supplements. It may be brewed into a tea, eaten whole or taken in capsule form.
In its natural form, ginseng root is light tan in color. As it grows, the root forms appendages that resemble the arms and legs of a human figure. When it is processed for therapeutic purposes, the root is peeled and dried in the sun, which bleaches it white. This gives white ginseng its name. It differs from steam-processed ginseng, which turns dark red.
Panax ginseng is the species most often used for herbal supplements and is indigenous to Korea and China. Panax quinquefolius is the American species, which is cultivated in the US state of Wisconsin, and in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and British Columbia. The most popular ginseng products come from Korea.
White ginseng is typically less expensive than the red variety. As a tea, it may be served either hot or iced. It may be served plain or mixed with milk or lemon juice and sweetened with honey or sugar. It is also available in commercially packaged bottles. White ginseng is sometimes used as a component for beauty products, including lotions, soaps, bath oils and shower gels.
