Last week my husband went to Korea for a business trip, I was hoping that i could go but we got two kids and my eldest still goes to school so I've decided to just stay instead and maybe next time we could bring our kids as well. Ok so i asked him to bring home the ever famous korean ginsengs " Korean ginseng" I asked him to at least buy some tea if he can't bring the ginseng itself, because he hates to bring a lot. So when he went home, he bought some stuffs and even chocolate with ginseng. he bought the tea that i asked and even went home with a very interesting story about this Korean ginseng. He only bought the Korean tea not the root crop.

He told me that there was this kind of dish that he liked, not the kimchi. Although he liked it so much because it very spicy hot. I don't like the smell though. I forgot the name. but he told me it was liked a stuffed chicken with vegetables inside, one of the vegetable that was stuffed inside was the Korean ginseng. He said that he liked the taste and the texture of the food and knowing that it was healthy. he just can't stop eating. He even described it as " the chicken was very very tasty and it was like eating chicken with potatoes or maybe sweet potatoes inside, Which he referred to the ginseng. He told me that his Korean friend tells a story about how ancient people believed this ginseng.

Very long time ago, people often believed that the shape of the Korean ginseng has two human like shaped, if the ginseng shaped like a female body structure then they said that this ginseng should be taken by females only. if the ginseng's shape is like of that a man's structure then it should be taken by a man. They used to believe that it gives different benefits to a male and female. Like if the man-shaped ginseng was eaten/taken by a man, he would not only be healthy but also has the sort of like Viagra benefits, so they say it shouldn't be taken by a woman.

but that story was so long time ago, now, they believe that if the shape of the ginseng was human-like it just simply means that it is a mature one, if the ginseng still doesn't have the shape of a human body, it just simply means that the ginseng was still immature. now, what was the common benefits that you could get with korean ginseng.
