iHerb Customer Reviews

This isn't pure White Ginseng. I am very disappointed because I wanted to start a collection of Imperial Elixir products. How do I know that it's not pure? I suffered the same unique side-effects from their white ginseng as their red ginseng. I have eaten so much white ginseng in the past without any side effects. Only this company, Imperial Elixir, twice, gave me side-effects from ginseng, which was nervousness and long-term vertigo. I am sure they are just some idiots that think that consumers feel a 'kick' from a low dose of Arsenic or something like that, or, as it is common practice in China, they use Arsenic as a pesticide since it is cheaper than the others. Didn't you know that in every 5 star Chinese restaurant, none of them use Olive oil? I am so unhappy at this product and the "Heaven" white ginseng. I have adjusted my review from 5 stars to 1 star.

Decent quality, could give a bit more weight

For those who haven't tried white ginseng, you should really give it a shot. I've always found it to be more mentally active than the red (which tends to be more physical). In Chinese writings, the white ginseng is attributed with more spiritual power. Like many tonics, the effects are somewhat cumulative, but these whole root products give far more "immediate" effects than capsules or extracts. The roots come extremely dry, and are quite hard... so be prepared to grate or grind them. I've used nutmeg graters, old-fashioned metal coffee grinders, mills, and even a good pair of pliers. You can just gnaw on the roots directly, but watch your teeth and be patient if you decide to go that route. All in all, a much better deal than capsules or tablets. You can probably do better if you have a Chinatown in your city or know of a good herb market, but this product is pretty good.
