I've been taking American Ginseng for weak adrenals for many years. It helped some, but lately I was feeling really exhausted, low blood sugar, etc. Until my brother ordered the Now Foods brand for me. I didn't know they made an American Ginseng. But right away it felt much more powerful than the other I'd been taking. My energy levels improved greatly.I switched back to the other for awhile, and went downhill again, very severely. So I quickly ordered the Now brand again, and the same thing happened - I came back to life. Now that sounds like a controlled experiment to me! But I don't think I'll experiment anymore. I'm sticking with what works. I take 6 caps a day, if you're wondering.

I helps me to focus better and increased my mental stamina. More potent than other brands.

Helps with energy and hot flashes. Nourishing for us old ladies. :)

We recently moved from 6hrs north of New York City to Phoenix AZ and were previously using Sibereian (Eulethero)Ginseng but found that it overheated us down here. We ordered this product, got the same pain relief and helped us adjust to the hotter climate as well.

The American Gin is doing just what is says it dies and better than the other brand I used to use.

I heard about this from the Dr. Oz show to help prevent getting the H1N1 virus. So far, it has worked very well. Good product.

An excellent product, I fell ten to twenty years younger when taking this regularly. Most people do not believe I am 65 years old, and I hate to admit that I do forget to take it sometimes, but have most of the time for about twenty years. My brother is the worst, saying I wear a rug, have false teeth, etc!

I have ordered this several times and been very satisfied with it and the full experience with i-herb.

Taking one capsule made me feel better right away. Amazing value.

A few days per week, I take Korean Ginseng in the morning to stimulate the chi, and hopefully to help my blood sugar to remain lower (ginseng has the reputation to be good for diabetic people). However, in the evening, I take this American Ginseng, which is cooler (rather a yin tonic).

the NOW American Ginseng is an OK product. I can not feel it as much as some other ginseng products, but it is priced well. I upped from one to two caps per day, and it is still on the weak side. For a test, I tried emptying a cap into hot water and drinking as a tea.
