Panax ginseng.png
  • Panax ginseng is a slow-growing perennial medicinal plant native to Asian. It is a member of the Araliaceae family and has served as one of the most well-known herbs worldwide for human health improvement. Triterpene saponins, named ginsenosides, are the main bioactive components in P. ginseng. It accounts for >4% of ginseng root dry weight. Ginseng growth has a strong correlation with the temperature. Cultivation of ginseng is difficult due to long growth period (4–6 years), diseases, and special growth condition requirements, which makes P. ginseng mainly distributed in the northeast region of China[1][2].
