  1. Things to lookout for on Korean Red Ginseng products
    • Concentration Level. The range between the Low as 4% to as high as 38%
    • How do we know this? For all the Korean Red Ginseng products sold in Korean Domestic market, it is a requirement to mention level of concentration on the packing. See example below.

However, products that are sold in international markets not bound by any monitoring regulation. Concentration levels is one of the most considered factor, but are often left off packaging labels.  Why is the concentration level is important?
    • It is the primary consideration for Korean Red Ginseng product because quality and concentration is directly reflected in the price. The higher the concentration level, the more Ginsenosides and therefore the benefit potential in the product. Naturally extracted forms of Ginseng are more potent and therefore more expensive than other forms such as pills and teas.
    • All of Korean Red Ginseng products are packed in very appealing looking packaging, but consumers need to look carefully for the concentration levels, and whether what the resellers say about the concentration level is true.  Often concentration levels are not stated or guaranteed.
