Ginseng is a famous herb popular in North Asia. Its roots are powdered and used in many herbal concoctions and teas. Ginseng contains vitamins A and B-6, and the mineral Zinc which aids in the production of thymic hormones, necessary for the functioning of the defense system. Fresh ginseng can be refrigerated for up to six weeks, but when dehydrated, it has an indefinite shelf life. Used in teas and herbal soups, ginseng is a healthy additive to your Asian dishes.
