American ginseng is known as Panax Quinquefolius, and the Asian or Korean ginseng is known as Panax Ginseng.

Both are slow-growing plant that is native to cooler forested areas of Korea, Northeastern China for Asian Ginseng; Canada, and Northern United States for American Ginseng.

Their roots are the most valued part of the plant.

They both contain an active compound called ginsenosides.

Both types have powerful adaptogens that help your body adapt to the adverse effects of stress, boost immunity, enhance mental energy, and overall well-being.

I'd put American ginseng tea right up there with coffee, very tasty, earthy, woodsy, nutty bittersweet. Not really a stimulant like Asian ginseng, doesn't raise blood pressure or cause stimulant side effects like coffee does and you can consume it later in the evening without insomnia problems. American ginseng basically tricks your stress hormones into thinking you are not stressed out, not tired or fatigued...You kind of forget to get tired, a very pleasant feeling of positive energy that sticks with you all day. I call it 'unflappable', a nearly invincible kind of feeling like nothing can bother you; makes me feel like a million bucks. Balance your chi with American ginseng today! burmeisterginseng.com

The Role of Adaptogens in Prophylaxis and Treatment of Viral Respiratory Infections - PubMed

Quote from NIH researchers refering to Panax Species (PS)
"PS has been extensively studied in clinical investigations of multiple adaptogenic indications [208].
Scaglione et al. [254] conducted a clinical trial of efficacy and safety of a PS extract for potentiating
vaccination against the common cold and/or influenza syndrome in 227 volunteers and reported a
significantly lower frequency of influenza or common cold the treatment group. The same group [255]
reported significantly increased bacterial clearance in patients with chronic bronchitis who received PS
extract concomitantly with antibiotic treatment. Lee et al. [256] conducted a clinical trial investigating
the preventive activity of PS against acute respiratory illness (ARI) caused by viral infection in
100 volunteers and found ginseng to protect against contracting ARI, as well as decrease the duration
and scores of ARI symptoms. Iqbal and Rhee [112] reviewed the evidence for antimicrobial activity of PS,
specifically against pathogens causing respiratory infections from animal and in vitro models, as well
as 15 clinical trials. Summarily, included investigations have shown PS to exert immunomodulatory
activity, which reduces the level of proinflammatory cytokines and oxidative stress, which, in turn,
reduce severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms and show potential for preventing development
of respiratory infections." https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32911682/

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.
