Decent product, good price

Posted by JahSun on May 15, 2012

At this price you can't complain. The quality might not be as high as some other reds that Imperial Elixir sells, but the roots are still much more effective than the stuff you will get in powders, capsules or pills. Truthfully, the real root seems to be more effective even than most extracts IMO. I've found that to be true for decades. If you are training, do martial arts, or use your body a lot, chewing on some ginseng root will give some noticeable results. For those less in touch with their bodies, it may or may not provide a boost as it mainly helps with stamina and recover. Ginseng is not a substitute for coffee or stimulants, so don't expect that kind of rush. If that is what you are looking for, get guarana.
