Marathon Ginseng, known as Wisconsin Ginseng or American Ginseng world wide or "shang"by local growers, has been cultivated for over 100 years. The fertile virgin soil and harsh winter in Wisconsin's Northwoods, combined with our proprietary post-harvest processing, help make Marathon Ginseng special with three unique qualities: deep growth rings, exceptionally strong aroma and a biting bittersweet taste.
Wild American Ginseng was first identified over 300 years ago in North America. It has been exported to China for over 200 years. Ginseng has been used in herbal remedies in native Indian and Chinese medicine for centuries and is considered a cure-all or panacea of bodily functions. Traditionaly Ginseng is taken to boost stamina,increase memories and prolong life. Modern research has shown that ginseng is a potent blood thinner and it can reduce blood pressure and sugar. These effects are likely mediated by one small but mighty molecule Nitric Oxide (NO), the same molecule that has made Viagra popular.
At Marathon Ginseng, we are committed to bringing you not only the finest American ginseng, but also the latest on the medical benefits of American Ginseng. When you enjoy our ginseng, its strong aroma and unique bittersweet taste would instantly identify that Marathon Ginseng is the Real Stuff!
