What is Wild-Simulated American Ginseng
What is Wild-Simulated American Ginseng?
Ginseng seeds are sown in suitable wild locations and left to grow on their own. The land is not tilled and no fertilizers, herbicides, or fungicides are used. Our wild simulated ginseng grows naturally within its natural habitat conditions. Our Wild-simulated Ginseng has nearly the same quality and value as wild-harvested plant
Commercial, field-grown Ginseng is cultivated unsustainably and is of inferior quality
American ginseng is listed in Appendix II of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), an international treaty signed by the United States (CITES Secretariat n.d.).
CITES Appendix II regulates trade of species that may become endangered as a result of commerce. The FWS administers CITES in the United States (50 CFR § 23 United States Fish and Wildlife Service Department of the Interior 2007). Because wild and wild-simulated ginsengs are often indistinguishable, the FWS regulates them both as wild ginseng.
Why Grow Wild-Simulated Ginseng?
We grow sustainably with a naturalistic way as possible offering efficacious wild-simulated ginseng. Our goal is to grow the highest quality herbs with the best medicinal value possible for our consumers. We set our headquarter at Catskill mountain because American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius): native to the Catskills, Catskill mountain wild ginseng is the best wild American Ginseng at world.
The greatest problem associated with intensely cultivated ginseng is disease, including alternaria blight, damping off and phytophthora. Any disease outbreaks severely threaten ginseng under intense cultivation because the plants are so close together that the disease can spread quickly through the entire bed. This intense fungus disease pressure forces artificial shade growers to use a vigorous fungicide spray schedule to prevent losses. China now has the most production of cultivated American ginseng. While the effects of pollution and environmental deterioration in Asia are a matter of great concern, it is impossible for China to grow wild-simulated ginseng.
The Chinese people prefer wild ginseng over cultivated because they believe that the slower-growing wild roots, which are harvested at an older age, absorb more curative power from the forest floor. In fact, the wild root contains more ginsenosides and nutrients at higher concentration levels. Ginseng’s high value and usage in traditional Chinese medicine ensures that demand for it will continue grow.
In many areas, wild American Ginseng populations have declined drastically. By replanting in such areas we grow wild simulated ginseng to ensure a future for these exploited populations
