OVERVIEW: What is Pure American Ginseng Root?
Not to be confused with ‘Panax’ or Asian ginseng, American ginseng is a pale-brown root with an impressive history. Native to North American forests, this slow-growing herb has increased in popularity over the years. Nearly harvested to extinction, American ginseng is both harvested from the wild and commercially cultivated — essentially mimicking conditions found in their forest habitat.
American Ginseng Root History
Although this root is growing in popularity today, it’s believed that it was utilized by native tribes long before it became a commodity. Historians have stated that these North American tribes, amazingly used wild American ginseng much in the same manner that Asian cultures used Panax ginseng.
In 1714, a Canadian Jesuit became interested in this root when he encountered Asian ginseng while working in China. After discovering American ginseng in Canada, which was then referred to as the ‘New World,’ Father Lafitau began exporting several pounds to China. Soon after, it was also discovered in a number of areas throughout Northeastern United States.
By the time the 1800s rolled around, this plant was no longer abundant — and although native populations have continued to dwindle since those days, wild ginseng is still being harvested within the eastern United States. It continues to grow naturally from Maine to Georgia, and is also grown in other regions throughout Canada and the United states. Today, it is offered for its potentially powerful health promoting effects.
