WHAT IS NOTOGINSENG?
Known in China for over 650 years, Panax Notoginseng is commonly referred to as the "King of Ginseng" be-cause the active substances contained in Notoginseng are superior to other ginseng family members in quantity. More-over, it has its own unique Notoginsenosides. It is featured in nearly every Patented Herbal treatment in China. Out of China's 24 most well-known FDA-recognized health supplements, 19 contain Notoginseng. Notoginseng can be taken in capsule or powder form or combined with other herbs in a formula.
Notoginseng has been primarily used to treat cardiovascular diseases by promoting blood circulation to dispel blood stasis, benefiting qi, and nourishing blood. In the Bencao Gangmu (Compendium of Materia Medica, 1596 A.D.) it is stated: "On account of the fact that Notoginseng is an herb belonging to the xue (blood) phase of the yangming and jueyin meridians, it can treat all diseases of the blood."
