Ginseng is grown for 6 years in nutrient-dense soil regions in Korea. It has been established that ginseng contains the highest nutrients and minerals when it reaches 6 years of growth.
During fall of the 6th year, the soil is turned over by tractors and ginseng is harvested by experienced pickers under strict supervision. Ginseng is then sent to the factory for processing.
Once it reaches the factory, the ginseng is cleansed using high pressure and ultrasound waves to rid of any debris. This cleansing process turns the ginseng into a bright white color.
After cleansing, the ginseng is steamed at approximately 90-98 degrees Celsius. Steaming ginseng at elevated temperatures significantly enhances ginseng’s biological activity and potency.
After steaming, the ginseng undergoes a combination of sun-drying and hot air-drying for weeks. This decreases the moisture content and transforms ginseng from white to red ginseng.
After drying, each ginseng root is trimmed and carefully selected based on its appearance and density. Red ginseng is ready to be sold or processed into various forms i.e. extract, powder, etc.
Our mission is to deliver the most effective & trustworthy ginseng products to consumers around the world.
Our story begins in the early 2000’s when, founder William Jun made his first of many visits to his homeland: South Korea. It was here that he discovered the wonders of Korean Red Ginseng. During every visit, Will couldn’t help but feel amazed at the booming ginseng industry and the health benefits this herb offered. At the end of each trip, Will would pack a suitcase stuffed with red ginseng products, both for himself and for gifts for his family and friends. This desire to spread the power of red ginseng inspired Will to found Ginsenos. Ever since its inception, the company’s mission has been to deliver the finest ginseng products while displaying an unwavering commitment to authenticity, transparency, and customer service.

Growing up in Korea, I’ve taken ginseng pretty much my whole life. I’ve tried all kinds whether its extracts, liquids, powders, you name it… Ginsenos is probably one of the best in terms of efficacy and convenience. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for boost in their daily life.
Ever since I started taking Ginsenos, I’ve noticed a positive effect on my energy throughout the day. Another unexpected benefit is that I’ve been able to sleep a lot better than I did before. I would definitely say its a game changer.
Where was I for the last 20 years? Tried ginseng for the first time, believe it or not. This stuff works wonders.
What is Korean Red Ginseng?
Korean Red Ginseng, also known as Panax Ginseng, is a highly prized herb used for thousands of years for its unqiue health promoting effects on the human body. Native to the mountainous regions of the Far East and the Korean Peninsula, the “miracle herb” has been found to have significant effects such as increasing mental performance, reducing cholesterol, improving libido, lowering blood sugar, and stimulating the immune system.
Where do you source your Ginseng?
All our ginseng is sourced in a region in Korea with thousands of years of cultivating history. Korea has been regarded as the ideal environment for ginseng cultivation due to its geographic latitude, four distinct seasons, and the country’s strict quality standards. After harvesting, our ginseng is processed into red ginseng in a GMP certified facility in Korea.
How is Red Ginseng different from White Ginseng?
Red and White ginseng originate from the same plant, Panax ginseng. Red ginseng differs from white ginseng in that red ginseng undergoes extra steps of repeated steaming and drying which gives it its unique red color and physical shape. Red ginseng has been regarded to contain higher active components and shelf life compared to white ginseng.
Why 6 year grown?
Ginseng grown for 6 years contains the optimal amount of active components and nutrients for consumption. Numerous studies have shown that ginseng harvested after 6-8 years adds no value to the efficacy of ginseng and are often inferior to those harvested at 6 years.
Is this an extract or whole root?
Each capsule contains 100% whole root red ginseng. All our ginseng maintain its natural 70% root 30% tail ratio before processing into powder form which maximizes the herb’s synergistic benefits.
What is the recommended intake?
We recommend taking one capsule (700mg) twice daily for the most efficient absorption. However, you may take two capsules at once if more convenient for you. As everyone responds differently to ginseng, we recommend that you to see what works best for you and adjust the dosage to fit your needs.
Are there any side effects ?
As with any herbal supplement, there is a chance of adverse side effects. If you experience, nausea, diarrhea, headaches, high blood pressure, low blood pressure, or insomnia, we advise that you stop taking ginseng immediately. If you have a serious medical condition or are currently taking any medication, please consult with your doctor prior to use.
Can I empty the contents and drink as tea?
Yes, you may empty the powder into cold or hot water, or you may even use them in your shake or cooking!
What are ginsenosides?
Ginsenosides, a class of steroid glycosides, and triterpene saponins, are the active components found in Korean Red Ginseng that are responsible for the majority of health benefits of ginseng. Ginsenosides have adaptogenic properties which work to boost the immune system, improve mood, support well-being. There are over 30 different ginsenosides identified to date, with each contributing unique benefits.
What is the ginsenoside content?
Our product contains one of the highest daily serving of ginsenosides. Before we use any ginseng, we test ginsenoside content both abroad and through party laboratories in the United States. Our ginseng has been reported by independent labs to contain over 40 mg/serving of the main ginsenosides (Rg1, Rb1, Rb2, Re, Rf, Rc).
I’ve seen 10%, 15%, 20% ginsenosides in the market? What is the variance in percentages?
There is high variation in the ginsenosides being reported from company to company, product to product. There are two reasons for this 1) Extract vs Root. Extracts will contain significantly higher percentages of ginsenosides than whole root products, however with extracts you may only be consuming a low dosage in mg’s per serving. This is why daily intake is more important than percentages. 2) Ginsenosides are often inflated for marketing purposes. In addition, there are different ways to measure ginsenosides in the laboratory, which can cause extreme variance. Due to the lack of ginsenosides standard enforced in the USA, we believe reporting ginsenosides percentages will only confuse consumers.
Are ginsenosides the only important factor in determining good quality ginseng?
Ginsenosides are a very important factor, if not the most, when it comes to determining quality and efficacy of ginseng. However, this is not the only factor as ginseng contains essential vitamins, essential oils, and antioxidants beneficial for the human body. This is why we recommend taking whole root as opposed to extract as in whole root, the important components are not killed off during the extraction process.
Do you offer money back guarantees?
Yes! We offer a 100% money back guarantee for anyone that is unsatisfied with our product. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Why is Ginsenos more expensive than other ginseng in the market?
The price of our ginseng is a reflection of the quality and cost of our raw material. Although we may reduce our costs significantly by importing finished products made in Korea, we take the extra measures of importing raw material, testing, encapsulating, and assembling in the USA to meet quality standards.
