GINSENG

Asian Ginseng has a rich history in Chinese medicine, spanning about six thousand years and is renowned for its rejuvenating and energising properties. Both Asian and American Ginseng offer benefits such as improving oxygen utilisation, preserving glycogen, enhancing cerebral circulation, supporting adrenal glands, stabilising blood sugar, balancing hormones, reducing LDL cholesterol while increasing HDL cholesterol and aiding in the production of DNA, RNA, interferon and blood cells.

As pets age, their ability to absorb nutrients can decline, creating under-nourishment. This results in loss of energy and alertness and an increased risk of illness. Not only is Ginseng known as an appetite stimulant but studies also show it can increase the ability of the intestine to absorb nutrients and enhance stamina, reaction time and concentration. Ginseng contains strong antioxidant components that help the body recover from stress, fatigue and illness. It also contains anti-inflammatory saponins that can also help regulate cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Another component in Ginseng root is geranium which has a powerful hydrogenating effect on the body, especially the liver.

American Ginseng, with its white appearance, is harvested and cleaned, while Asian Ginseng is often steamed with herbs and wine, giving it a reddish colour and a warming quality. Consequently, American Ginseng is preferred in warmer seasons, while Asian Ginseng is best suited for cooler seasons.

Ginseng's effect are cumulative, and the most significant benefits occur after prolonged use, although some users may notice immediate effects. For optimal effectiveness, take Ginseng between meals rather than with food and avoid taking it at night to prevent potential sleep impairment. 

Ginseng may interact with certain medications. Animals with certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or bleeding disorders, may need special consideration when using Ginseng. The safety of using Ginseng during pregnancy or nursing has not been extensively studied in animals. It's advisable to avoid Ginseng supplementation in pregnant or nursing animals unless specifically recommended and monitored by a veterinarian. 

Add 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of leaves to a cup of hot water and allow to infuse for 2-3 minutes before straining and serving. Ensure the tea has cooled adequately before presenting it to your dog.
