About Red Kooga

The Panax Ginseng herb is highly regarded and has been used in the Orient for thousands of years. It is the root of the ginseng plant that is processed and used in dietary supplements and herbal remedies. The ginseng root is shaped like a human form, hence its nickname “the man root”. The word “Panax” is derived from the Greek “panakos” meaning “cure all”.

It is said that the ginseng root became so desirable that Chinese emperors were willing to pay its weight in gold.

Today ginseng continues to be taken as a daily part of the routine among many people to help maintain mental alterness and promote vitality.

The reported cognitive benefits following ingestion of ginseng may be due to an effect of the herb on glucose metabolism. Glucose is the primary fuel used by the brain and body and is essential for maintaining cognitive function and physical performance.

Ginseng is often considered to be an “adaptagenic” which means the individual needs of your body dictate which properties of the herb are utilised at different times.

There is a full range of Red Kooga Ginseng products and formats available, to fit in with your particular needs and lifestyle.

Red Kooga was the first ginseng brand to be launched on the UK market in 1976.
