Korean Panax Ginseng
Korean Panax Ginseng, also known as “True Ginseng”, is a plant which grows in Eastern Asia and Siberia. It shouldn’t be confused with American or Siberian Ginseng which are similar but haven’t been shown to provide all of the benefits of Panax Ginseng.
Panax Ginseng is best used on an empty stomach, and should not be used in the evening as it can cause insomnia in some people.
Side effects reported include insomnia, menstrual issues, increased heart rate, headaches, and loss of appetite. These side effects are rare at the typical dose of 1,000 mg per day but get more common at doses over 2,000 mg.
