Austin, TX—BOTALYS has adopted Asian ginseng through the American Botanical Council’s (ABC’s) Adopt-an-Herb botanical research and education program, according to a press release.

The adoption supports ABC’s HerbMedPro database, a comprehensive, interactive online database providing access to scientific and clinical research data on the uses and health effects of over 265 herbs, spices, medicinal plants, and fungi, the release notes.

Asian ginseng, or Panax ginseng, is a slow-growing deciduous perennial native to eastern Asia, according to the release. The plant is now cultivated in China, Japan, Korea, and Russia. Most of the effects of Asian ginseng are attributed to the saponins in the root, called ginsenosides.

Gaelle Stockman, marketing communications manager of BOTALYS, lists the benefits of Ginseng in the release: “Ginseng not only mildly stimulates the central nervous system, it also modulates the immune and endocrine systems. It also works as a stress reliever, helping us live dynamically and serenely.”

Stockman adds, “We did not choose ginseng as a key botanical by coincidence. It helps people adapt to our challenging 21st-century lifestyle.”
