Fermented Ginseng by Dr. Mercola
Dr. Mercola’s fermented ginseng contains 96 mg of fermented Korean ginseng root extract, or Panax ginseng, per capsule and dose. Ginseng enjoys a number of health claims awaiting approval by the European Commission, including support of the immune system and of heart and blood vessels and contributions to energy metabolism.
Superior absorption through fermentation
The beneficial effects of ginseng have been known for centuries and are well documented. However, ginseng is difficult to absorb: valuable substances are not always absorbed. This Dr. Mercola product contains special fermented ginseng with high bioavailability that is well absorbed by the body.

Panax ginseng from the Panax family
Ginseng is the name given to preparations made from root varieties of the genus Panax (an ivy family). The Panax genus consists of at least nine species. Panax ginseng (either Korean or Chinese ginseng) and Panax quinquefolius (American ginseng) are the best known. The active properties of ginseng are largely attributed to the ginsenosides contained in ginseng, various steroid-like substances and triterpene saponins.
Higher ginsenoside content
Ginseng has been used as an adaptogen for centuries. Especially in China, Korea and Japan ginseng is still one of the most popular herbs. Unlike other supplements, Dr. Mercola fermented ginseng is made from pure 100% Korean ginseng, instead of the American ginseng. Korean ginseng contains more ginsenosides: the most valuable components of ginseng.
Fermented ginseng from Dr. Mercola is harvested at the optimal time, maximizing the nutritional value of the root. The whole root is then processed using a special low-temperature vacuum extraction. This preserves the vitamins and other beneficial compounds that during traditional processing, such as steaming at a high temperature, would be lost. The root is not peeled, so the key bioactive substances remain intact.
The benefits of fermentation
Dr. Mercola has extensive experience working with fermented ingredients. Fermentation optimizes the benefits of a plant substance and changes its nutritional value. For example, fermentation helps to pre-convert ingredients, increase certain nutrients, improve the bio-accessibility of minerals, increase the bioavailability of antioxidants and to create unique metabolites.
If you use the following drugs and want to use fermented ginseng, consult your doctor first: heart and blood pressure medications; blood thinners; diabetes medications; immune-suppressing medications; ADHD drugs; antidepressants such as MAO-inhibitors.
