Korean ginseng is considered one of the purest and most effective forms of ginseng. Hence its medical effects are quite strong.
Ginseng is especially used for the elderly or often used for its mental boosting abilities. Sometimes it is also used as medicine against cancer, but scientific studies are yet to be made. In the modern world, ginseng needs more research to understand its effects fully. However, in Chinese medicine, the root has always been used and is highly regarded as a potent medicine.
