Ngoc Linh ginseng contains 52 saponins (saponin is the main component of ginseng. The more saponins, the better).

Besides saponin, Ngoc Linh ginseng contains 17 amino acids, 20 trace minerals and 0.1% of attar. The ginseng has high effects in anti-stress and anti-aging conditions. It helps improve immunity, enhance liver function, and lower cholesterol. Besides, it also works well with antibiotics and diabetes medications.

Ngoc Linh ginseng is one of the world’s most precious ginsengs. It has been approved as a national product under the Prime Minister’s Decision 787/QD-TTg./.
