American Ginseng is "Xi Yang Shen" in TCM
??? xi yáng shen, "foreign western root" is the chinese name given to this herb that is highly prized by the Chinese for its nourishing qualities.
American Ginseng is much more 'yin' than its eastern counterparts. It is not considered warming, but neutral or cooling and nourishes fluids.
This herb is better for dry climates or for people with dryness problems (yin deficiency). Be careful taking this herb in cold climates or with damp environments and especially if you feel cold as is.
Whereas the Eastern Ginseng (Korean, etc) is more warming and for colder climates. Be careful taking Eastern Ginseng in hot climates and with hot constitutions, this can cause bad reactions.
