Potent Korean Ginseng Soup

Potent Korean Ginseng Soup


1 person made this

About this recipe: At home, I always keep a box of this valuable herb & use it to make a soup especially after an illness or returning from a trip. Korean Ginseng is normally double-boiled with chicken meat as a soup, unlike the American Ginseng, which is usually sliced & soaked in hot water to make a tea.

Korean Ginseng promotes blood circulation, revitalizes & aids recovery from weakness after illness. Many athletes may also use Korean Ginseng as herbal support during rigorous training.


When taking Ginseng, avoid taking Vitamin C (including fresh fruits) & never drink tea at the same time. These will reduce the efficiency of the herb. Also, avoid taking it when having a cold, flu or other lung infections.
