What Is Korean Red Ginseng?
Throughout history, Korean red ginseng (Panax Ginseng) has been one of the most sought-after medicinal herbs. The word “Panax” comes from the Greek word panacea, which means “all healing.” For thousands of years, Korean red ginseng has been used as a natural aphrodisiac by assisting the cardiovascular system in a way that encourages normal circulation. This, in turn, may elevate sexual performance.
In ancient times, herbalist thought that plants that have a resemblance to a certain body part were meant to treat that part of the body. Korean red ginseng has a unique shape that resembles a human body. Therefore, since ancient times it has been used to treat the whole human body.
Traditionally, Korean ginseng has been used as an energy tonic. Today, it has been found to contain about 32 types of ginsenosides, chemical compounds to which ginseng owes its effect. Among all the different kinds of ginseng, Korean ginseng contains the highest variety of ginsenosides. ((Lee, S. M., Bae, B. S., Park, H. W., Ahn, N. G., Cho, B. G., Cho, Y. L., & Kwak, Y. S. (2015).

Why Choose Herbolab’s
Korean Red Ginseng?
1. We Provide Pure and Genuine Red Korean Ginseng Straight From Korea
Korean red ginseng is a delicate root that requires a very specific growing environment to produce healthy ginseng saponins. Korea’s unique climate and soil is optimal for the Korean ginseng to grow. Although there are other varieties of Ginseng, only Korean ginseng grown in Korea can guarantee the maximum efficacy, quantity, and variety of active components.
2. Our Red Korean Ginseng Is Fermented For Maximum Absorption
Research has shown that many of the active compounds of ginseng, the ginsenosides, pass right through your stomach and small intestines without ever being assimilated by your body. Only when they reach the large intestine, do they start to be fermented by your gut bacteria and absorbed by your body. However, this step is carried out right before being eliminated and might not be efficiently done by the time your body excretes it. Herbolab’s red Korean ginseng is fermented using the same process that naturally occurs in your large intestine, resulting in a better, faster and more consistent absorption of the beneficial components of ginseng.
3. Standardized to a Minimum of 13% Ginsenoside Content
Our Korean Red Ginseng is made using a patented Korean extraction method that ensures a maximum ginsenoside content. Not all Korean ginsengs are equal. Ginsenosides can be destroyed due to the extraction process used, especially if done with heat, which results in a product that is low in efficacy. Herbolab’s patented Korean extraction method uses a unique low-temperature extraction that ensures maximum ginsenosides content. We are proud to guarantee a minimum of 13% ginsenoside content, a concentration that other companies can only dream of.
