American ginseng from Baumann Wisconsin Ginseng is also available in capsules, tea and sliced root. For more than 40 years, the Baumann family has been at the forefront of American ginseng farming in central Wisconsin, U.S.A.
American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) holds an important place in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Referred to as an adaptogen, a natural substance that helps the body adapt to mental and physical stresses, American ginseng’s cooling and calming properties are highly valued in a fast-paced, overly-stimulated world.
Considered a “cold” medicine in China, American ginseng is used as an immune strengthener for people who are stressed and for other “hot” conditions such as high blood pressure or lung ailments. Western studies have confirmed its measurable effects on a number of ailments, from warding off the common cold, to reducing blood sugar in diabetics, to relieving fatigue in patients undergoing chemotherapy.
Wisconsin-grown American ginseng is perhaps the most highly prized and valuable of all strains of the root. Our four-season climate, rolling terrain and mineral-rich, glaciated soil produce uniquely flavored ginseng packed with ginsenosides, the active ingredient in ginseng. At Baumann Wisconsin Ginseng, we only grow one crop of ginseng on any plot of land to ensure our roots access all the minerals and nutrients our amazing central Wisconsin soils have to offer.
