Ginsana's unique formulation

Ginsana capsules contain a specific extract of Panax ginseng that is produced using a standardised and controlled process. In the preparation of Ginsana, only selected ‘white ginseng’ roots are used; these are harvested after 5 to 7 years’ growth, to ensure optimal concentration of active components.

Ginsana has been clinically proven, it is the exact product that has been used in numerous clinical trials. This is very important for natural medicines as there can be great variance between products, even if they appear to use the same active ingredients, due to the part of the plant that is used, growing methods, harvesting processes and manufacturing methods. The outcomes of clinical studies for natural medicines should therefore only apply to the exact product that has been tested.

Directions & dosage

Adults and adolescents over 12 years: 2 capsules daily – both to be taken with breakfast, or one with breakfast and one with lunch.

Whilst the benefits of Ginsana may be felt quickly, it is recommended to follow a course for at least 2 months; this may be interrupted with a 2 week break and then resumed.

Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional.
