Ginseng is an ancient plant whose use in traditional medicine as a tonic and homeostasis restorer dates back more than 4,000 years. In ancient China, it was reserved for the upper castes and popular beliefs attributed to it the power to preserve youth, which no doubt explains its various nicknames of "king of herbs", "royal herb" or "root of long life", a flattering reputation which preceded its arrival in Europe in the 18 th century. Ginseng root contains ginsenosides, specific active ingredients that give this plant its beneficial activities. At the cellular level, ginsenosides improve energy exchange and oxygenation. These molecules are also involved in the synthesis of neuro mediators, which explains the improvement of physical resistance and sexual energy, as well as intellectual performance.
