FAQs

How does Ginsana differ to other Panax ginseng products?

Each Ginsana capsule contains the specific standardised G115® ginseng extract  from the roots of Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer. G115®contains always the same amount of ginsenosides, ginseng’s active ingredients, standardised  at a concentration of 4%. Therefore, in all galenical forms the same pharmacological activity is ensured. The cultivation of ginseng plants follows the international guidelines of the Good Agriculture Practice (GAP). After harvesting, only the 5-7 year old roots are processed via a standardized extraction method which is used to prepare the extract. Analytical controls ensure the absence of contamination. At the end of the extraction, the G115® is standardised and additional studies with the finished product (Ginsana®) guaranteeing quality, safety and efficacy are also carried out. More than 30 years of clinical research ensure the efficacy of the product.
