Panax quinquefolius is also known as the American Ginseng.
The main active compounds are ginsenosides, triterpene glycosides, which are saponins, a class of secondary metabolites prevalently found in the plant kingdom. Ginsenosides are bitter-tasting, surface active, glycosidic compounds. Through sour or enzymatic hydrolysis they are converted to a triterpene part, the so-called aglycone, and a sugar part. The sugar proportion consists of chains of multiple monosaccharides variously linked to the aglycone.
Depending on the section of the root, the age of the plant and the manufacturing process (e.g. red or white ginseng), the content and composition of the ginsenosides can vary considerably.
The content of ginsenosides is considered to be the quality measurement of a ginseng root: the more variability in content of various types of ginsenosides and the larger quantities of the individual ginsenosides there are, the higher the quality (and the cost) of the root.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, ginseng has been used for thousands of years for balancing what is referred to as the so-called yin-yang equilibrium. Panax. quinquefolius is claimed to have a “cooling” effect and strengthens “Yin”.
