Ginseng Header

Panax ginseng, also known as Asian or Korean ginseng, was an important traditional health tonic in Asian countries like China, Korea and Japan, and has become increasingly popular throughout the world. Valued at USD 22.9 billion in 2019, the global ginseng extracts market is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2% from 2020 to 2027. In 2019 the powder format accounted for 52.1% of the market revenue and is expected to grow significantly due to being convenient and highly preservable with its low water content. With a wide variety of applications in health tonics, food, beverage and body care products, the fastest growing segment over the forecast period is expected to be dietary supplements, at a CAGR of 6.9%.1

Nutrients

Panax ginseng is a popular adaptogen. It’s thought that adaptogens increase vitality and the body’s resistance to stressors (physical, biological and chemical).

The main bioactive components of Panax ginseng root are a distinctive variety of steroid glycosides and triterpene saponins known as ginsenosides. Recently it was discovered that gintonin, a part of a novel class of glycolipoproteins, is also a key active component in panax ginseng.2 The roots are also high in phenolic compounds, phytosterols and polysaccharides, and contain smaller amounts of several vitamins and minerals.3
