Adding Ginseng to Your Juices

Ginseng is a great supplement to add to your juices, but you need to know that it can be rather bitter. It is a good idea to start off slowly, and work your way up to the full amount.

You can add one to two teaspoons of the liquid or powdered ginseng. When using ginseng supplements, you should make sure you are getting pure, standardized supplements to ensure the highest quality.

Ginseng provides a wealth of health benefits that make it a great addition to your normal juicing routine. Whether you add it to juices or smoothies, you are sure to notice a difference right away.
