As a widely–used health ingredient, Panax ginseng is used for improving thinking, concentration, memory and work efficiency, physical stamina, and athletic endurance. Globally, China is the largest exporter of Asian ginseng extract. Pesticide is commonly used in the ginseng plantations in North China, therefore the pesticide residue has become a major obstacle for US customers when importing the material from China, due to the strict regulations FDA imposes. Skyherb has been working with Zhejiang Institute for Food and Drug Control (ZIFDC) for over 2 years to launch a ginseng extract with low pesticide residue, in compliance with FDA requirement. The new ginseng extract has already been officially introduced to US market.
