Ginseng has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years.
Today, ginseng is sometimes called an "adaptogen," which is a substance that is supposed to help the body better cope with mental or physical stress. It has been said that Asian ginseng boosts the immune system, which might help the body fight off infection and disease. Asian ginseng seems to be an antioxidant. Antioxidants help to clean body of free radicals, which are substances that can damage DNA and contribute to heart disease, diabetes, and other conditions.
