It is necessary to answer this question from a viewpoint exploring the Chinese philosophy of "yin and yang." Health, simply stated, is maintained by balancing opposites called "yin" and "yang." Yang is concerned with heating, energy, and metabolism. Yin, at the other end of the spectrum, is characterized as cooling, passive, and storing. The Chinese have been using herbs such as ginseng to maintain this balance so that more potent remedies - ones with side effects and possibly lethal consequences - are not necessary.

Asiatic Panax ginseng has been traditionally used as a restorative tonic for the "yin" person. Studies conducted in the United States have verified the different chemical profiles of American and Asiatic ginseng. American Ginseng is ideally suited for those who are constitutionally "yang," the active, stressed, aged, and those who need to improve their general health. Considering our dietary habits (red meats, dairy products, processed foods, etc.) and stressful lifestyle of American society, American Ginseng is the most suitable for our way of life.
