Product Spotlight: White American Ginseng


It’s no secret that stress is a common occurrence in today’s busy life and that stress has only been amplified with COVID-19. A common effect of stress is weight fluctuation. According to the American Psychological Association, a staggering 61% of Americans reported an undesired weight change since the start of the pandemic. When feeling stressed or fatigued, many people will turn to energy drinks to give them that boost to power through the day. Unfortunately, most of these drinks and supplements are loaded with sugar and other unhealthy additives. This is where Purium’s White American Ginseng comes in.

What is it?

Ginseng is a popular herbal plant that has been used as a holistic medicine for centuries. There are two main types of Ginseng that are most commonly used for the incredible benefits: Asian (sometimes called Korean) and American.

White American Ginseng, also known as Panax quinquefolius, is a powerful adaptogen and  non-toxic herb that naturally helps supports the body’s response to stress by encouraging stable energy boosts and bringing balance to the body. It’s not to be confused with Asian ginseng or Eleuthero as these are completely different plants with different effects.

How it works

White American Ginseng has been used throughout history because of its ability to revitalize and restore balance in the body. Ours contains at least 28 active ginsenosides which promote increased energy without the jittery side effects. Ginsenosides are pharmacological components of ginseng that can aid blood flow, the nervous system and certain brain neurotransmitters.

White American Ginseng may:

  • Support healthy responses to physical and psychological stress
  • Support healthy blood glucose levels
  • Support healthy cholesterol levels and cardiovascular function
