Summary

Panax Ginseng has been commonly used in indigenous medicine in the Far East for over 5,000 years. Its man-like appearance ensured that it was quickly accepted as a tonic maintaining the body in good health, inducing rejuvenation and retarding ageing. The vast output of modern research suggests uses for this ancient drug in today's medicine.
This volume endeavours to present a well referenced review of many aspects of ginseng literature including history, botany, horticulture, tissue culture, chemistry, pharmacology, therapeutics, side effects, quality control, patents and related or substituted species.
