GNC's bottom line
is the main benefit of ginseng.
The use of ginseng is based on a SUPERSTITION called the Doctrine of Signatures. Because the root looks like a little headless man, it was thought that the root had magical healing powers for people. Ginseng benefits only those who manufacture & sell it to the gullible & uninformed. It's an excellent example of the placebo
effect. "Ancient wisdom"? Forget about it.
