Aktualisiert: Feb 10
Ginseng is a root of plants in the Panax family. It's been used a lot in TMC & it is one of the better known medicinal substances. Below is a picture from Britannica (1*) article, where you can find a more detailed information about this root.
"One of the first written texts covering the use of ginseng as a medicinal herb was the Shen-Nung Pharmacopoeia, written in China in 196 AD. In his Compendium of Materia Medica herbal of 1596, Li Shizhen described ginseng as a "superior tonic". However, the herb was not used as a "cure-all" medicine, but more specifically as a tonic for patients with chronic illnesses and those who were convalescing."
And Panax, in Greek means "all healing"
There's a lot of information available about Ginseng, here's a bit from Dr. Axe (1*)
