Thursday, 02 Jun 2011 09:41 AM

Ginseng is a miraculous herb with multiple benefits, be it for healthy persons, diabetics, or those interested in weight loss. Health benefits of ginseng are often tempting, inviting everyone to find ways on how to include ginseng in diet.

Although ginseng is available on the market in the form of capsules, powder, energy drinks, wine, tea, etc., people wonder how to start using ginseng in their diet.

Ginseng roots can be eaten raw or chewed. One can simmer 5 to 6 slices of roots in hot water to make ginseng tea. This is a very good way to start incorporating ginseng into your diet.

Adding sliced ginseng roots to soups, especially chicken soup, while cooking is also a good option. Chicken or other dishes can be cooked with ginseng. Ginseng powder can be sprinkled over a salad for additional benefits.

This is equally healthy for diabetics. Diabetics can make use of ginseng extracts, capsules, or chew ginseng raw. One to two teaspoons of ginseng powder added to fried or cooked dishes is also a healthy option.

Ginseng does miracles when taken to lose weight healthily. It speeds up the body's metabolism and prevents conversion of extra calories into fat. Moreover, ginseng increases stamina, which is useful for doing exercise and thereby achieving healthy weight loss. Ginseng can be added to smoothies or marinated with venison as a healthy alternative.
