About Ginseng - Parts used and where grown
Asian ginseng is a member of the Araliaceae family, which also includes the closely related American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) and less similar Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus), also known as eleuthero. Asian ginseng commonly grows on mountain slopes and is usually harvested in the fall. The root is used, preferably from plants older than six years of age.
Historical or traditional use
Asian ginseng has been a part of Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years. The first reference to the use of Asian ginseng dates to the 1st century A.D. Ginseng is commonly used by elderly people in the Orient to improve mental and physical vitality.
Ginseng’s actions in the body are thought to be due to a complex interplay of constituents. The primary group are the ginsenosides, which are believed to counter the effects of stress and enhance intellectual and physical performance. Thirteen ginsenosides have been identified in Asian ginseng. Two of them, ginsenosides Rg1 and Rb1, have been closely studied. Other constituents include the panaxans, which may help lower blood sugar, and the polysaccharides (complex sugar molecules), which are thought to support immune function.
About Superior Trading Company
In 1959, Burk and Mary Chung opened a small retail shop in San Francisco's Chinatown. They gradually grew to specialize in ginseng and herbal products. SUPERIOR was the exclusive agent and pioneer for Korea's Office of Monopoly Korean Red Ginseng Roots for North America and Europe. SUPERIOR was also exclusive importer and pioneer for Haw Par Brothers Tiger Balm in the United States.
Burk Chung was the first Asian buyer of Cultivated American Ginseng to purchase roots in Wisconsin. The Chung family owned farms in Marathon, Wisconsin and in Ontario to ensure quality products and ensure the lowest prices for ginseng roots. SUPERIOR products may be purchased by mail, on the Internet, or at its retail store location in the heart of San Francisco's Chinatown. The company continues to be family-run.

It's okay soap - you get what you pay for really. I gave it lower marks because it has such a strong smell. For reference, this Ginseng soap is stronger and sweeter smelling than the Price of Peace Ginseng soap.
