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.*

ingredients

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.
