Panax ginseng has been used medicinally for over 5000 years and is considered a fundamental tonic in Traditional Chinese Medicine. As the world’s most powerful adaptogenic herb, ginseng has remarkable capacity to support the body in achieving natural homeostatic balance.
Panax ginseng is known to:
- Assist the body in managing everyday stress
- Support the body’s ability to resist fatigue
- Promote healthy aging and overall wellness
That said, fortifying a product with ginseng comes with its share of challenges. First, while Panax ginseng is the superior choice (since it’s the only ginseng that contains ginsenosides), quality and efficacy varies a great deal due to harvest time and processing methods.
Second, bioavailability is an issue that plagues ginseng products. Orally consumed ginsenosides are very hard to break down with gastric juices or liver enzymes alone and, even if they do make it to the intestinal tract, bioavailability still depends on the health of the individual’s microflora.
A Bioavailable Panax Ginseng
GS15-4™ is produced through a fermentation process that transforms the ginsenosides into end-stage metabolites, mimicking the fermentation environment of the colon. This transformation has been clinically proven to provide 15 times increased absorption, 4 times faster absorption, and 4 times more consistent absorption—with a better taste profile than conventional ginseng extracts.
