American Ginseng or Panax quinquefolius is a herbaceous perennial and member of the ivy, Araliaceae, family. A traditional and widely-used Native American medicine, Ginseng is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Found primarily in the Appalachian and Ozark regions, as well as eastern Canada, the herb was discovered by a Jesuit priest in the 1700s and imported to China.
Chronic-stress can cause depression and/or anxiety. American Ginseng may help depression by regulating stress-induced immune responses and hormonal changes, helping to maintain homeostasis.
