Ginseng is an adaptogenic root vegetable, known to be particularly great for those that are more Type A, and live by the ""work hard, play hard"" mentality.
WHAT IT DOES:
If you're looking for foods to help support energy sans caffeine, Ginseng will be a great herb for you. This herb is believed to restore and enhance general well being, strengthening Chi or ""what gives life"" in Traditional Medicine. In modern times, Ginseng is particularly great to help support blood sugar levels and do as adaptogens do: provide anxiety and stress support. Couldn't we all use Ginseng via IV? We're (kinda) kidding.
Bitter and earthy with a touch of sweetness (like carrots).
PAIRS WELL WITH:
Coconut or hemp milk, bananas.
Maca, Chill The F* Out or Mind Over Matter.
