How do I take ginseng best?
Generally, a 100-day cure is recommended with a daily dose of one to two grams of ginseng root with a minimum ginsenoside content of 0.4 percent (Ph.Eur.).
If you use Ginseng SL from FloraFarm, one gram of ginseng root (equivalent to two capsules of ginseng SL, each containing 167 mg of ginseng extract) per day is usually enough, as our ginseng has been shown to contain more than double the prescribed minimum content of ginsenosides.
Taken as a capsule:
Take two capsules in the morning, then you are ready for the day!
Taken as a root:
If you like the original and the bittersweet taste of the root, we recommend one gram of the dried root in the first half of the day: Before swallowing, allow the root parts to melt in the mouth for as long as possible until they are completely soft. So the active ingredients are optimally absorbed through the oral mucosa.
Whether root or capsule, the effect is the same!
The active ingredients are either absorbed into the body via the oral mucosa or the small intestinal mucosa and distributed to all relevant destinations.
Tip: Some people feel that taking coffee and ginseng at the same time is not good, and even the old Chinese are avoiding taking ginseng with caffeine-containing drinks: They say that caffeine takes away energy from ginseng. If possible, drink your morning coffee or black tea half an hour before or after taking ginseng.
