Break off a piece of root with a mortar and pestle if handy, the smaller pieces being the better, and eat directly, capsuled, or taken in tea. It is recommended to start with 1-3 grams and increase as desired. Ginseng is commonly used as a stimulant, aphrodisiac, performance enhancer, & panacea (cure-all).

American ginseng is the most Yin, or nourishing of all the true Ginsengs, even more so than White Panax ginseng. American ginseng is noted for its cooling effects which are valued more for people with already hot personalities who might be overstimulated from too much of a more fiery Ginseng.

Please be cautious with your use of Ginseng. It is recommended to not take Ginseng every day, but rather in week long cycles of on & off usage.
