All About Red Ginseng

What Is Red Ginseng?

Red ginseng is made by a process of naturally drying cultivated ginseng and steaming and drying it at high temperature and high pressure. It takes on slightly more brown and red color than white. That is why it is called red ginseng. Red ginseng is a famous specialty of Korea and boasts of a tradition that goes back over 3000 years. Long before, Panax Ginseng of Korea was well-known as precious medicinal herbs and famous for gifts for aristocrats in China, Vietnam and even in the UK.

The process of manufacturing red ginseng produces specific ginsenosides such as ginsenoside Rg3 that are not found in ginseng. This helps absorption and provides better flavor and aroma.

BTGin Saponin Capsule is manufactured by adding an enzyme treatment process to red ginseng so that specific ginsenosides in this product are 20 stronger more than those in other Korean red ginseng extracts, resulting in faster and better absorption and efficacy.

Ginseng has active components called ginsenosides, among which the types of Panax Ginseng cultivated in Korea have been known to be the most effective worldwide for thousands of years.

It is said that Korea's climate with four distinct seasons and diverse natural environments are suitable for growing great ginseng. Moreover, Korea is a country with world-class ginseng processing technologies. Ginseng can usually be processed to ginseng extract in foreign countries.

What Are The 5 Advantages of Korean Red Ginseng?

Numerous papers and reports on the myriad efficacies of Korean red ginseng have been published in the world for thousands of years. Except for the advantage of these effects, a brief summary of 5 advantages of Korean red ginseng is as follows:

1) Best Raw Materials: It uses only the roots of Panax Ginseng cultivated in Korea with the best quality in the world. (In processing ginseng into red ginseng health functional food, only roots are used as raw materials, not ginseng leaves or other by-products of ginseng.)

2) Ingredients: The active ingredient of ginseng is called a ginsenoside. There are various ginsenosides, each of which has its own characteristics. According to the data, in general, there are 14 types of ginsenoside in American ginseng, 15 types in Chinese ginseng and 8 types in Japanese ginseng. Korean ginseng has 32 types of ginsenosides. Furthermore, it contains specific ginsenosides that are better absorbed and have better efficacies. Due to these excellent ingredients and efficacies, fresh ginseng is usually used for cooking and red ginseng is used as health functional food in Korea. And there are many non-ginsenoside ingredients that are good for health, which depend on the environment and other external factors. Therefore, ginseng cultivated in Korea which has the most suitable conditions can be advantageous in producing good non-ginsenoside ingredients.

3) Products Manufactured According to Advanced Red Ginseng Standards: Global standards for total ginsenosides are not clear. In other words, there is no standard for 5%, 10% and 80%. However, in Korea, the standards of red ginseng are clearly controlled by law, so consumers can trust and use it. For example, Korea has chosen the sum of ginsenoside Rg1, Rb1 and Rg3 as the total ginsenoside marker ingredient which has good health effects on the human body. In Korea, red ginseng products are divided into general and health functional food products, and the red ginseng products which are classified as health functional food are labeled with the intake amount of Rg1, Rb1 and Rg3. Moreover, the products are randomly managed by the KFDA, allowing consumers to purchase and consume them in consideration of the total intake amount of ginsenosides. Check it out now. Is there any standard of ginsenoside type or amount for products that are advertised with 5%, 10% and 80% ginsenoside? It is probably hard to find. Red ginseng products manufactured in Korea as health functional food are marked with this content. Non-marked products are red ginseng products produced based on general food, and in this case, the quality of ginsenoside is not guaranteed.

4) Products Produced with Strict Quality Control: Very strict and complex quality control takes place when red ginseng products are produced in Korea. The Korean government has long been taking special care of Korean red ginseng. For example, when it comes to the pesticide residue test, cultivated ginseng is required to be cleaned until it meets the criteria. If it does not meet the criteria, it cannot be sold. Such ginseng supplied like this is also tested even after it is made into processed products. If any of the tests do not meet the criteria, the sales will be suspended, and the KFDA will collect and discard them.

5) Flavor and Aroma: The red ginseng production process, which steams and dries ginseng at high temperature and high pressure, gives a better flavor and aroma. You can definitely tell the difference if you taste the content from other capsule products not produced in Korea by melting it in hot water. Of course, it also contains more active ingredients that are better absorbed, which are more effective.
