Traditionally Used

Native American tribes used American ginseng for centuries before it became popularized by global trade in the mid 18th-century. More recently, studies have shown it supports healthy energy levels, cognitive function, and working memory, the mental faculty involved in conversation as we gather thoughts or when we’re linking concepts together.*

Supports working memory and focus

Ginsenosides found in American ginseng regulate the production of neurotransmitters, which are widely recognized for their positive effects on the central nervous system. Two double-blind studies indicate that American ginseng can help improve working memory, with one study showing improvements only three hours after intake.*

Our American Ginseng

Sourced from China

American ginseng can take over a decade to reach maturity, and since colonization, wild populations in the U.S. have seen a significant decline. We source ours from small scale farms in the Jilin and Heilong Jiang provinces of China, where Asian ginseng has been cultivated historically.

Sustainably grown

Our local partners work in tandem with ginseng farmers who closely monitor the environmental impact of cultivation on the land. They use techniques like shading their fields and plant new trees after each harvest in order to farm as sustainably as possible.
