How to use Ginseng
Ginseng can be obtained in many forms, such as pills and powders, but is arguably most effective as a dry root. This way you can be sure you are getting a pure, unadulterated product, and it gives you the option to do what you want with it.
The most common, and most effective way to take dried Ginseng root is as a tonic or tea – although it can be chewed if you have a fancy for the taste.
To make a Ginseng root tea:
- Measure 2-3 grams of dried root for every cup you wish to make.
- Add the Ginseng and any other herbs you may want in each cup.
- Pour in hot, but not boiling water and allow to steep for 5 minutes. If you really want to bring out the flavor, then you can steep it for longer.
- Add in some honey if you want to sweeten it up. The hot water should have softened the Ginseng root as well, making it easy to eat, should you want to.
