Action of American Ginseng and Korean Ginseng
American ginseng is used for promoting the yin and therefore, used for cooling down the body from a fever or from hot climate. Hence, it is used to enhance the body's immune system. Early research studies show that it may also help with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), when it is used with ginkgo. Other actions of this type include anti-fatigue, anti-weakness, relaxing, and strengthening.
