The Green Investment JSC in cooperation with the Board of Governors of Wisconsin State in the US held a gala dinner entitled “Wisconsin United States Ginseng - New Energy” on June 1 in Hanoi, as part of series of promotional activities for US ginseng in Vietnam.

The gala dinner featured Hollywood chef Jack Lee, who used Wisconsin United States Ginseng in a number of Vietnamese dishes for over 200 guests.

Wisconsin United States Ginseng is a species of natural ginseng grown in the Northeast of the US, discovered by missionaries who served in China and recognized its quality.

Each year Wisconsin produces about 430 tons of ginseng and 80 per cent of output is exported, primarily to China and Hong Kong.

The American ginseng planted in Wisconsin is different from the American ginseng planted elsewhere. It is grown in accordance with the standards of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), under the close management of the Wisconsin State Council.

The biggest difference between American Ginseng and Asian Ginseng is that the ginsenosides R0, Rb1, Rb2, Rc, Rd, and Re (with 30-40 per cent more nutrients compared to Asian ginseng) act as a tranquilizer and have a metabolic effect on the central nervous system.

Ginseng helps increase endurance, memory, and concentration while relieving pain, stress, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety and restlessness, but does not raise blood pressure. Wisconsin Ginsenoside Rg3, a substance that inhibits metastasis and the proliferation of cancer cells, also raises the level of other ingredients such as maltol and Ginsenoside Rh2., which inhibit the growth of cancer cells.

While Asian ginseng is good for the health, it contains more Rg1 groups and stimulates the nervous system, causing excitement and raising blood pressure.
