(QNO) - Diversification of the products made of/from Ngoc Linh ginseng helps bring this national treasure closer to consumers.
According to Luong Trong Khoa - founder of the Vietnam Ginseng Pharmaceutical Joint Stock Company, Ngoc Linh ginseng is a precious medicinal herb that has been used as a tonic for thousands of years.
Several studies show that receiving a correct daily dose of ginseng is good for health conditions.
So, it is necessary to develop products with the corresponding ginseng content so that they are easy to absorb and have reasonable prices.
Khoa and his colleagues have produced standardised Ngoc Linh ginseng extract in nano-powder form that is easily absorbed by the human body and meets GMP and WHO standards.
The Ngoc Linh ginseng roots, which are used to produce standardised Ngoc Linh ginseng extract, are selected and collected from local ginseng households.
Khoa usually spends time going to the ginseng areas in order to test the age and quality of the ginseng roots.
Under the brand ‘VINAPANAX is Ngoc Linh Ginseng, a variety of easy-to-use product lines were born using the standardised Ngoc Linh ginseng extract, such as Ngoc Linh Ginseng and Salanganes' Nest, Ngoc Linh ginseng soaked in honey, and health and beauty products. They cost VND 500 thousand.
Like a lot of businesses producing and selling Ngoc Linh Ginseng products, Khoa wants to popularise this kind of ginseng so that everyone can use it.
He is planning to produce a new line of Ngoc Linh ginseng products for young people.
