Health in the Balance
People whose bodily systems are balanced tend to enjoy long term health, stamina, energy, and resistance to disease. The Chinese model for this balance is the Yin/Yang scale. Yin is considered to be cooling and relaxing, while Yang is warming and stimulating.

In order to bring the organism into balance, a person who is excessively yang (or yin deficient) is better suited to consume yin herbs and foods.The opposite is true for the person who is excessively yin (or yang deficient); they require more yang nourishing herbs or food. Ginseng is an ideal tonic herb because of its balancing, adaptogenic properties.However, since ginseng's species vary slightly in composition and effect, the selection of which one to consume may also vary.

North American (Yin)
Most commonly used by the yang excessive, atheletes, type A personalities, and hyper-active people for physical and emotional stress. It may be taken by women during menopause, and is a frequent choice for non-vegetarians. It's often preferred in tropical areas and during warm weather.

Siberian (Slightly Yang)
A tonic which may be used year-round for maintenance of a balanced system, to enhance stamina and support the lungs & heart. It is widely used by athletes and performers, and it may be taken for longer periods of time than Chinese or Korean ginseng due to its more neutral characteristics.

Tienchi (Neutral)
RAW-  According to traditional Chinese lore, literature and research, Tienchi may assist with blood flow.  China's most famous herbalist, Li Chih Shen, said that "Tienchi is more valuable than gold."  Often consumed year-round for longer stretches of time than Korean,Chinese, or American Ginseng.
COOKED/STEAMED- General Tonic.

Chinese/Korean (Yang)
Traditionally taken by yang deficient or sedentary people who wish to offset poor circulation, debility due to illness or age, and lack of stamina. Many vegetarians and post-menopausal women also choose this type, as do others during the cool seasons. RED- More concentrated yang energy than the white
