    I also did hear or read something about that, so I have started to incorperate more ginseng in my diet. Not sure if it is American or not. I buy in bulk dried or the fresh root and there are not labels on either. Fresh grated is great in a smoothie or added to steamed or roasted fresh veggies.

    Are you sure you are not buying GINGER, not ginseng? That is the root I can buy in the grocery store and grate.
    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
