Ginseng is a kind of plant from the rose family. It is found in the highlands where the altitude is above 3,700 meters. It is rich in protein and many kinds of amino acids needed by the human body, as well as vitamin B2, B6, C, A, and E.

Its most outstanding characteristics over other foodstuffs are that it contains selenium, with organic selenium of 92.71 mg/g, 100 times higher than ordinary foodstuffs. It is the opinion of experts that the nutrition content of ginseng surpasses that of panax quinqueforlium.

Selenium has bi-directional regulating functions: cancer prevention, anti-cancer, anti-senescence, detoxification, radiation prevention as well as vision protection. It can also prevent hepatitis B, and is conducive for fertility and growth in babies.
