Ginseng

Ginseng is a short, perennial plant of the Araliaceae botanical family. It grows naturally on the slopes of ravines and shady, well drained mountainous hardwood forests mostly in the Northern Hemisphese in eastern Asia like northern China, Korea and eastern Siberia. American ginseng was "discovered" in North America by a French Jesuit missionary named Father Joseph Francis Lafitau in 1716 near Montreal, Canada and he had heard of this wondrous plant through the writings of another Jesuit priest, Father Jartoux, who had observed the use of Asian ginseng in Manchuria, province of China. As such, ginseng is basically obtained from two regions and commonly known as Asiatic Ginseng (Korea & China) and America Ginseng.

Regardless whether it is Asiatic Ginseng (Korea and China) or America Ginseng, both herbalists had given ginseng as one of the most highly respected herb since ancient times and term it as one of the nature’s greatest gift.
