JINCHEN means in Chinese language, "like man", because it often has his shape. The traditional use of ginseng in Antiquity was only reserved to royal families or diplomatic circles.
Due to this incredible reputation, ginseng was called PANAX coming from PANAKEIA, the goddess known to cure all the illnesses. The ginseng variety we use is PANAX CA MEYER.
