Wake up your taste buds with the zesty bittersweet bite of this earthy, woodsy ginseng, turmeric, and ginger blend, an excellent alternative to coffee. Ginsenosides are the bioactive compounds that give Ginseng its healthful medicinal properties. Curcumin, the main ingredient in turmeric, has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a potent antioxidant. Ginger is among the healthiest and most delicious spices and is closely related to turmeric. Ginger is high in gingerol, another robust anti-inflammatory and antioxidant substance. Altogether, this combination makes an effective high-antioxidant and anti-inflammatory tea that will provide energy and improve immunity, but it also supports pain and healing.

Recommendation: Mix 2 tsp with milk of your choice, and add a dash of black pepper for delicious energizing golden milk. Or dissolve into 12 oz hot or cold water for tea.

Most ginseng berry benefits are attributed to its high ginsenoside levels (including 4 not found in the ginseng root), which have been shown to be effective for managing a variety of health conditions. Additionally, a study published in the Journal of Ginseng Research suggests that an active agent in ginseng berries, called syringaresinol, possesses anti-aging qualities that activate genes to help extend one's lifespan.

Ginsenosides are the primary active pharmacological components of ginseng. Ginsenosides, also known as steroid-like saponins, are unique to the ginseng species. To date, there have been more than 100 ginsenosides discovered. Many studies have validated the pharmalogical benefits of ginsenosides in cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, cancers, stress, and immune support.

Ginseng berries have long been under-appreciated. In traditional oriental medicine, ginseng root has long been used as a valuable medicinal plant. During cultivation, growers are required to choose between harvesting the seed for further plantings or remove the flowers to increase root development. Thus, many have thought that the ginseng berry (fruit) may be considered a useless by-product of ginseng. However, modern researches in the past decade have determined that ginseng berries contained higher amounts of total ginsenosides than the root.

The main bioactive compounds in the berry are Ginsenosides, the same classes as those found in the root. Studies have reported that the total ginsenoside content could be higher in the berry than in the root by as much as 60%-200%. Rb3, Re, Rb2, Rd, and Rc, are the ginsenosides that are the most abundant in the American ginseng berry compared to the root.

1. Get some sun — This sunlight is the primary source of natural vitamin D. Vitamin D has immunomodulatory effects that can improve the body's immune system.

2. Wash your hands — Hand washing is one of the best strategies you can use to avoid getting sick by keeping bacterias and infections at bay.

3. Humidify — It makes it harder for viruses to stay airborne if there is moisture in the air. Saline irrigation solution can also help to keep your nasal passages hydrated especially in heated buildings and relieve congestion if you have a cold.

4. Get plenty of sleep — Not getting enough sleep as well as poor quality sleep can have an adverse effect on your immune system.

5. Drink lots of water — Drinking lots of water helps flush toxins from the body and keeps mucus in the respiratory tract thin, thus easier to expel.

6. Good nutrition — Eating a healthy, balanced diet rich in whole foods is important for a healthy immune system.

7. Regular Exercise — Regular exercise is one of the pillars of healthy living. It improves cardiovascular health, lowers blood pressure, helps control body weight, and protects against a variety of diseases.

8. Maintain healthy weight — Excess weight causes a state of chronic inflammation, and this causes your immune system to become compromised.

9. Spend time in nature — Being cooped up inside heated buildings with recirculated air in winter can help viruses to spread. Use your lunch break to go outside, get some fresh air, decompress, and replenish your store of Vitamin D from sunshine.

10. Manage your stress — Managing stress, especially long-term stress, may help people to fight germs. Dedicate time to laughter, meditation, recharge “me” time are just a few ways you can utilize to destress on a daily basis. 

11. Avoid too much stimulants — You can strengthen your immune system by limiting too much stimulants such as energy drinks, excessively caffeinated sodas, and ni****ne.

12. Minimize smoking and alcohol — Smoking can depress your immune system by suppressing the antibodies created by your body to fight cold and flu viruses. Alcohol dehydrates the body and creates an attractive environment for viruses.

Anatomic features of American Ginseng:

In appearance, the root of ginseng is similar to that of liquorice.

When the root is dried, the root is pale yellow in colour and wrinkled.

A white bark surrounds the entirety of the root. There are two to three portions connected to the upper part of the root. The root has at least one scar at its termini.

The “main root” is considerably thicker in diameter in comparison to the rhizome. The rhizome is the part of the root from which the bud stems. The main root is the most important portion of the plant for the extraction of ginsenosides, given its size.

From the main root, the fibre roots and the tail roots extend. These are small roots which have roles in anchorage and nutrition.

Nootropics are cognitive enhancers that purport to improve learning capability, motivation, concentration, memory and creativity. There are both natural and synthetic compounds that offer a variety of benefits for the brain.

Here are a few non-addictive, yet safe and research proven effective substances you can start trying:

⁃ Adaptogenic Herbs (Ashwagandha, Astragalus root, Licorice root, Rhodiola rosea, etc. See our previous post on Adaptogenic Herbs): helps reduce cortisol, lowers blood sugar, increase cognition and learning and memory.

⁃ B Vitamins (vitamin B1, B2, B6, B12, etc.): helps to produce neurotransmitters and s*x & stress-related hormones like cortisol in your brain

⁃ Bacopa monnieri: help regulate dopamine and serotonin productions

⁃ Creatine: is neuroprotective, and improves alertness, concentration and attention

⁃ DHA/Fish Oil: protects against damage to brain cells, and also help support memory, focus and reduce inflammation

⁃ Ginkgo Biloba: increase cerebral blood flow, improving oxygen and glucose availability to neurons, boosts dopamine which can help reduce anxiety, depression and assist in the symptoms of ADHD and demensia

⁃ Ginseng: reducing adrenal fatigue, boosting GABA and providing an anti-stress effect, and boosting ATP synthesis in mitochondria due to its antioxidant effects

⁃ Lion’s Mane Mushroom: neurogenesis and neuroprotective, can enhance neurite-outgrowth, and provide protection against neurodegenerative disorders

⁃ Maca: boost acetylcholine, regulates hormones, improves memory and acts as an antidepressant

⁃ Rhodiola Rosea: helps in neurogenesis by repairing and growing new neurons, boosts mood by influencing serotonin and norepinephrinelevels in your brain

In many states across the Appalachian region, September 1 marks the first day of American ginseng season, when the valuable medicinal plant may be legally harvested and sold. In Asia, the plant’s roots are prized as a natural cure-all; in the United States, the generational knowledge and regional folklore around it strengthen a community of dedicated practitioners.

Today, in honor of the open season, we are excited to officially launch a new online exhibition, “American Ginseng: Local Knowledge, Global Roots.” We invite you to dig into the multimedia exhibit to learn about ginseng’s fascinating past and promising future. Meet 45 experts—growers, dealers, researchers, stewards, herbalists, and chefs—who are committed to sustaining this endangered forest botanical.

Do you have your own story about American ginseng? By uploading text and photos, you can help us grow the exhibition and expand our understanding of the “green gold” of the forest.

Our Story

Dear Reader,

The Burmeister family has been cultivating Panax quinquefolious since 1909. When my great-grandfather, Julius Burmeister, came to America from Germany, he worked for the Fromm brothers, who are in the history books for pioneering the cultivation method for American ginseng in the US...my great-grandfather was one of the very first. Today, we collectively harvest tons of what many consider to be the strongest adaptogen on earth and the most valuable of the true Panax ginsengs.

The ginseng in the Burmeister brand is cultivated for a minimum of 4 years. This long-lived perennial root becomes more potent with age. Also, Burmeister Farms practice what is known as integrated pest management. That means that we are basically organic until something comes along that cannot be controlled by organic methods. Then, and only then, do we turn to biodegradable chemicals to save the plants from disease. We do not use pesticides or herbicides, only organic and biodegradable fungicides sparingly. Our ginseng is HPLC tested and is guaranteed free of pesticide residues far below EPA thresholds and usually beyond detection limits (none detected). I am confident that our ginseng is the cleanest cultivated ginseng you will find. In a time when farmers are using more and more chemicals to boost yield and consumers are demanding health products to be organic, we are proud of our ginseng’s purity.

My business started as a class project at UW-Madison business school some 24 years ago. I was born into a fourth-generation ginseng growing family, but we needed to develop finished products instead of just selling raw commodity to China. By the time I left college, I was the number one producer of American ginseng tea in the US processing ingredient for a little company called Celestial Seasonings. Together we developed some of the quality control protocols that are now industry standard. Many of the major domestic brands of natural products use our ginseng for raw ingredient. Since then I've developed an unparalleled brand of ginseng products including capsules, tea, select roots, root powder, extract, and the first American ginseng instant tea in the US. In 1983 American ginseng officially became a GRAS (generally recognized as safe) food according to the FDA.
