Ginciana is UAE’s first official branded distributor of the superior Korean 6 Year Red Ginseng from the Punggi region. Our ginseng farmers are part of a cooperative who for generations have traditionally been cultivating and processing the red ginseng since 1908.
Consumed as a health food for over 2,000 years, Korean ginseng has been studied scientifically and is well-known for its health promoting properties, especially when grown for 6-years (the maturity of the root and density of healthy components being a key factor in its efficacy).
Red ginseng is steamed without the skin being peeled, the heat creates a chemical reaction that makes the ginseng turn red. The steaming is a vital part of the whole process which concentrates and amplifies the healing energy of Ginseng. Steamed ginseng has around 32 kinds of saponin & ginsenosides (these are powerful active compounds when combined act as therapeutic agents to accelerate nutrient absorption, aid digestion, increase energy and give the neuro-protective effects of ginseng) compared to white ginseng which only has 24. Plus our ginseng is at least 6 years old (most on the market is less than 3) and left in the ground to increase effectiveness and potency.
You can trust Balqees and Ginciana as our suppliers are regulated and commercially monitored by the Ministry of Agriculture in the region to ensure strict quality and safety of the products.
