Both American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius, L.) and Asian ginseng (Panax Ginseng) are believed to boost energy, lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and manage diabetes. Research also suggest that Ginseng may possess benefits for cognitive behaviour. It should be noted that there are many different types and grades of ginseng and Tily Tea uses American Ginseng rootlets, which generally has milder effects.
