    I don't think this topic has been discussed previously, not really 'cooking' but no other forum for health foods or drinks.. please move if required Jim

    Has anyone used Ginseng and if so how have you found it ?

    I have two 150gm tins of Korean Red Ginseng, a gift from my daughter in law who is Chinese..

    am going to try it .. hoping it will give me back my youthful vigour :LOL:

    Don't use it if you have heart problems ( a genuine warning not a wind up). It increases the heart rate.

    Ginseng has a lot of contraindications and reactions with many medications as well as health conditions.BEWARE.
