American Ginseng (Panax
) is a major
tonic herb. It is not exactly the same herb as Asian Panax Ginseng.
Though it is used in much the same way
and with many of the same attributes and goals in mind, American Ginseng is
also somewhat different in its actions from the Asian varieties. Like Panax
Ginseng, American Ginseng is an adaptogen and a Qi tonic. It thus provides
energy, adaptability and heightened alertness, but it is NOT a stimulant. It is
especially appreciated for its endurance increasing capacity. In contrast to
Asian Ginseng which is generally warm in nature, American Ginseng is a Yin
tonic and is cool in nature. The cultivated American Ginseng roots used to make

metabolisms, are aggressive, have ruddy complexions, etc. can take American
Ginseng without overheating. In fact, taking American Ginseng will help to

to moisten and cool the lungs.
American Ginseng is
also extremely popular among people who live in warmer climates. Since it is a
cooling herb which replenishes fluids, it is especially beneficial
during hot weather. American Ginseng is more widely used in southern China than
Chinese Ginseng. However, in the north where the winters are cold, Chinese
Ginseng is still favored. Many people now prefer a blend of American and Asian
Ginsengs, with a shift in balance as the seasons turn, utilizing more American
Ginseng in the warm months and more Asian Ginseng in the cold months.
