No one would say no to a little extra energy. Having our energy boosted means we could work harder, think more clearly, and have a little more fun. How we perform physically and mentally depends on our energy level. Increasing our energy level is the gateway to improving our quality of life.

There are a wide range of products on the market that claims to increase our energy, such as coffee and other energy drinks. However, almost all of them would act as a two-edged sword to our body. These products cause energy peaks of which our body is forced to use more energy in a short period of time. When the boosting effect is over, our body is left with tiredness and fatigue.

Fortunately, there are ways that we can increase energy without causing discomfort to our body. Panax ginseng is a miracle herb which Chinese have been using for thousands of years. As an adaptogen, ginseng may have calming effects and boost energy at the same time without overstimulating. [1]
