People that suffer from insomnia and lack of sleep, suffer a lot more than you might think. If you don’t get enough sleep, it can permeate nearly every aspect of your life.

Korean ginseng is a traditional medicinal herb that originated in Asia thousands of years ago, and was considered a “cure-all” remedy that was used to treat many different ailments. However, today we know Ginseng as a superfood with scientifically validated functions that include well-being and relaxation, by way of:
1. Supporting Peaceful Sleep - Ginseng supports fatigue-resistance by helping to balance chemical that cause fatigue in the blood and muscles, Ginseng further supports healthy blood circulation, both of which will translate into better sleep.
2. Fighting Against Stress – Ginseng is an “adaptogenic” herb (often called the king of herbs) and is not a stimulant and does not contain caffeine. Although it supports fatigue resistance (stamina), it is not a drug, and actually calms the mind, allowing for deeper focus, is safe to take before bedtime, and can help put you in the state of mind of relaxation. Ginseng is often part of relaxation formulas, which are intended to calm the nerves and promote well-being.
Mature Ginseng roots are adaptogenic, because of the unique components of Ginseng, which includes not only healthy plant saponins, but also a large array of ginsenosides, when Ginseng is grown for 6 years to full maturity.
Adaptogens increase the human body’s resistance to physical/mental stress, which is said to have a modulating effect on many different systems in the body. Adaptogens allow you to sleep more peacefully by supporting key body functions, which result in a more harmonious state of being.
Ginseng Is Caffeine-Free
Many people wonder how it is possible that something which is part of vitality and endurance formulas could also be used to relax, but they need to understand that Ginseng is caffeine-free, and will not give you that “wired” feeling. Ginseng is in athletic endurance formulas, because it supports fatigue-resistance, mental sharpness (including memory) and blood circulation. However, the adaptogenic components and phyto-nutrients in Ginseng also support of the immune system, relaxation, and a sense of well-being, which makes Ginseng perfectly safe to use before bed.
