Finally you don't have to go to Siberia for a good quality Ginseng
December 01, 2020 Report
When Farmaroot’s 100% Natural Canadian Ginseng arrived, I was super excited for all the things I could make with it, especially during these cold months. Used in traditional Chinese medicine, there aren’t many people who haven’t heard of the root and its therapeutic benefits. But for a reminder, here are a few:
- An immune booster
- An antioxidant that is known to reduce inflammation
- May increase dopamine in the brain thereby aiding in mental health function
- An aphrodisiac in assisting in erectile dysfunction
- May help reduce fatigue and promote increased energy
- May lower blood sugar
This natural adaptogen is considered one of the Queens in natural health. Steeping the root in tea for twenty minutes in a big tea pot is a great way to get in the habit of a ceremonial teatime. Or perhaps try what I did the other week and add and good chunk of the root in a 24-hour bone broth with your favourite herbs such as ginger and turmeric. You could even add it sliced in your favourite jar of honey.
Definitely a no brainer for the kitchen cupboard and I love that it's Canadian.
