Korean Red Ginseng (KRG) has been known as the “miracle” root among medical researchers for some time. Its qualities as a cancer fighter and fatigue reliever have been well-documented. But that’s not all it does, there has also been research in using ginseng to help Alzheimer’s and diabetes.
The Korean Ginseng Seminar, held to educate the general public about the benefits of KRG, will be held at Mandarin Orchard Hotel on 28 April 2012, from 10:00am to 2:00pm. This event features two experts who will be speaking on the medical benefits of ginseng and why Korean Red Ginseng is the best among ginseng around the world.
Dr. Kim Si-Kwan, Dean of College Biomedical & Health Science at Konkuk University (Korea), and one of the speakers at the seminar said “Research has shown that Korean Red Ginseng contains more Ginsenosides (the main active ingredient) than ginseng sourced from America or China*. So pound for pound, KRG has better efficacy for every Singaporean’s dollar.”
Dr Chang Yuan Shiun, Professor of Pharmacognosy at China Medical University, said, “Korean ginseng has been known for centuries as a root that can help alleviate a multitude of ailments, from cancer to diabetes. We hope to share some information on the almost magical benefits of KRG at the seminar.”
Another benefit of KRG, which helps students and busy executives, is the ability to improve mental performance and reduce fatigue. Ginseng experts recommend taking a KRG capsule once a week or drinking KRG tea three times a week**.
“We hope that this event will highlight the hidden abilities of this ‘miracle’ root. It has been proven that KRG is superior to its American and Chinese competitors. We are proud to introduce Cheong-Kwan-Jang, the most prestigious brand of KRG, to Singaporeans today. In the past, people might have associated ginseng in the form of a dried root, but today we are showcasing modern products that make consuming KRG much more convenient.” said Mr Tan Chih-Chung from Korea Ginseng Corporation (KGC).
With the recent statistics that one in three Singaporeans will develop diabetes when they reach the age of 69. Studies*** have shown that this miracle root, when taken before food, can help reduce blood sugar levels, helping diabetes sufferers manage their condition. The diabetes study also found an additional side-effect of taking KRG – the patients experienced weight-loss during intake.
Singaporean’s consumption of KRG grew from 11 tons in 2009 to over 25 tons in 2011.
