A Step-By-Step Guide to Understanding Notoginseng

Get the full lowdown on notoginseng powder here, including what it is, where it comes from and how it can benefit your health, as well as where to buy the highest-quality notoginseng powder for your health.


What Is Notoginseng?

Panax notoginseng is a special type of ginseng whose flowers, leaves, and roots are used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for a wide variety of benefits across several bodily systems. 


Notogiseng contains biologically-active compounds like saponins and flavinoids that provide various therapeutic benefits to human health, including forming the building blocks of the body's essential hormones. 


Where Does It Come From?

Notoginseng grows naturally in the wild, mainly in woody areas populated with ferns and trees. Natively, notoginseng grows in only one place in the world: the Yunnan province of China. 

It takes between five and seven years for a notoginseng plant to grow to maturity and be ready for harvest. This is one of the reasons why famous Chinese herbalists once deemed notoginseng worth more than gold and why it is wisest for anyone wishing to use notoginseng to obtain it from a respected panax notoginseng supplier in the U.S. rather than growing it yourself.


How Can Notoginseng Powder Benefit Your Health

Notoginseng offers many benefits for human health across the neuromuscular and cardiovascular systems. 


Cardiovascular Benefits of Notogiseng

Notoginseng benefits the cardiovascular system by staunching bleeding, making it useful for nosebleeds or when you find blood in your urine, feces, or vomit. You can also use it for improving internal blood flow and helping to restore high blood pressure to more normal levels. In addition, notoginseng supports the health of the blood vessels and reduces swelling, thereby also reducing pain. Cardiovascular symptoms and conditions notoginseng may help to alleviate include chest pain (aka angina) and heart attacks. 


Neuromuscular Benefits

The neuromuscular benefits of notoginseng include preventing stroke, alleviating sore and aching muscles, increasing energy levels, and the ability to exercise. In addition, the same anti-inflammatory effect it has on blood vessels, it also has on muscles and nerves, further helping to prevent muscle pain and nerve-related pain. 


Other Notoginseng Benefits

In addition to its benefits for heart health, the nervous system and your muscles, joints, and bones, notoginseng can also help prevent liver disease.
