American ginseng is a member of the ivy family of plants that is native to the northeastern US. Due to overharvesting and urban sprawl, American ginseng is also commercially cultivated in woodland or artificial settings in Minnesota and Wisconsin, where it takes 4 to 10 years before the roots are harvested.

The whole dried roots are used in tea blends and to make infusions, tinctures and liquid extracts.

American ginseng is a member of the ivy family and native to eastern United States and Canada, although the species is also cultivated in China. The root is harvested from plants that are five to ten years old.

Like its Asian counterpart, Panax ginseng, American ginseng is considered an adaptogenic herb that helps the body cope with stress and resist disease. The active agents in the root are ginsenosides, a class of saponins that are exclusive to plants in the Panax genus.
