Notoginseng ( Panax notoginseng ) is a kind of ginseng different from ginseng right . It grows in the southern regions of China. Notoginseng is also called tsenychchi or sanchez ginseng in the TČM and its use is somewhat different from the ginseng right.
Like ginseng , even ginseng notoginseng is a long-lived plant whose root requires 6 years of growth to full maturity. Cheaper notoginseng is grown for a shorter period, but at least 3 years. Notoginseng is processed analogously to ginseng right , ie either by drying (notoginseng), or by steaming and subsequent drying (prepared notoginseng). In the TČM, a steamed version is usually used, the benefits of which are the same as for ginseng right (higher durability and higher proportion of hydrolyzed panaxosides).
The main active substances of notoginsengu are the same as ginseng of the right- triterpenoid saponins called panaxosides and ginsenosides . In composition, notoginseng is quite similar to ginseng right , but the TČM has a specific use for him. Notoginseng is a regular panaxoside containing the genus genus (Panax) and its effects resemble the ginseng of the right . Because information on its effects could be interpreted as a " health claim " according to Regulation 1924/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council, please inform others about the effects of notoginsengu.
Notoginseng is best used in combination with other herbs as instructed by the TČM practitioner. But it can also be used on its own - it is, after all, a specific kind of ginseng and so can be enjoyed. Prepare it by licking it in hot water. Usually about 8g (4-5 slices) are poured into 1/4 liter of water per dose. Notoginseng (as well as other TCA adaptogens) can also be used in the preparation of dishes . Notoginseng is best to use the practice of the TCM as instructed.
