How to take American Ginseng
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.
Dried root powder can also be mixed in a small glass of orange juice or milk. Leave it to stand for about 10 minutes before taking to allow the water-soluble ingredients to dissolve. If you like the unique taste of ginseng, hold fresh or dried root slices under the tongue for several minutes before chewing and swallowing (using one gram of dried or three grams of fresh root). Fresh and dried root is also frequently used as an ingredient in cooking.
Q & A
Can I take too much or too little American ginseng?
Answer: American ginseng has a very high safety margin. However there is usually little additional benefit in taking more than the recommended dose. Taking too little ginseng will not produce the desired effect. The recommended dose for adults is 0.5 to 3 grams per day, and most people find that 1 gram (1000mg) daily is effective. For blood sugar control please see Question15.
What is the best way to take ginseng - roots or capsules?
Answer: Either is fine. American ginseng has a uniquely bitter/sweet taste, and many people prefer to take it in capsule form. Taking capsules containing a precise amount of root powder is probably the best and most convenient way to take ginseng.
How much and how often should I take American ginseng?
Answer: The recommended daily adult dose is 1 gram of American ginseng powder. This can be increased to 2 grams per day during times of stress or sickness. American ginseng is perhaps best taken once per day after breakfast with a glass of liquid. For improved blood glucose control, some studies suggest that the total daily dose should be between one and two grams (1000mg to 2000mg) per day and divided into two or three. Thus one 500mg capsule three times per day at the start (or just before) meals..
How quickly does American ginseng work?
Answer: Unlike many pharmaceutical medicines, ginseng has a gentle action and its effects may not be felt immediately. Although some people feel a greater sense of well being and improved mental clarity almost straight away, most people do not feel the benefits for several weeks. However, the benefits also appear to last several weeks after you cease to take ginseng. The more balanced and healthy your body is to begin with, the less likely you are to feel the effects.
