How to Use Dried Ginseng Root

How to Use Dried Ginseng Root
how-to-use-dried-ginseng-root

Ginseng is a tan, gnarled root that often resembles the shape of a person. Used in traditional medicine for thousand of years, ginseng contain compounds known as adaptogens, which increase your body's ability to adapt to physical or mental stress. However, scientific evidence concerning adaptogens is controversial.

 

Nevertheless, ginseng has been shown to have the potential to boost immune function, lower cholesterol, increase antioxidant capacity and mental acuity, and improve reproductive and hormonal disturbances. Ginseng root is typically chewed or stewed in water to make a tea or soup.

 

1 Measure two to three grams of chopped ginseng root per cup of tea. This equals about five to eight slices of ginseng root or about one teaspoon of ginseng powder.

 

2 Add the ginseng and any other ingredients to a cup. You may wish to add other teas or herbs for flavor.

 

3 Pour hot, but not boiling, water over the ginseng and allow it to steep for five minutes. You may allow it to steep for longer if you want a bolder flavor.

 

4 Add any sweeteners you wish and drink.

 

5 Add additional hot water for a total of two to three cups, if desired. The ginseng root will get soft and may be eaten if desired.

 

Tip

 

Ginseng is rare and expensive, so buy only from reputable suppliers.

 

Seek Korean, red or panax ginseng if you want Asian ginseng. American ginseng is a different species but has similar health effects. Siberian ginseng differs in chemical makeup and has different benefits than American or Asian ginseng.

 

Chopped ginseng root may be added to soup, stir fry or many other dishes, although it is not known how other nutrients might alter the bioavailability of compounds in ginseng.

 

Warning

 

Do not use ginseng for complementary or alternative medicine without first checking with your doctor. Ginseng may interfere with medications, elevate blood pressure, cause mood or sleep disturbances and alter hormone levels.
