Ginseng is a potent antioxidant with many health benefits. To get benefits, a ginseng supplement must contain the correct form of ginseng and offer superior absorption. We are impressed with BTGIN Gin Hongsam Saponin Capsules. They are designed to maximize the absorption of their six-year Red Ginseng.
What is Ginseng?
There are several types of ginseng. Red ginseng has pharmacological benefits. It is legendary in oriental medicine. Research associates the most health benefits with Red Ginseng, also known as Panax ginseng or Korean red ginseng.
The dried unprocessed root is called white ginseng. The root that has been steamed and dried is called red ginseng. Red Ginseng is ginseng roots harvested after 6 or more years. It is more expensive to grow.
While ginseng is sourced from other regions, red ginseng from Korea is the type with the most benefits.
Gingseng can enhance energy, stamina, memory, circulation. Ginseng supports the immune system and offers skin benefits. But not all ginseng supplements contain the most beneficial ginseng.
Ginseng contains two important compounds: ginsenosides and gintonin. These compounds complement one another to provide health benefits. The major active pharmacological component of ginseng is Ginsenosides.
Ginsenosides, a form of Saponin, are rare and found almost exclusively in ginseng. The antioxidant potency and most health benefits of ginseng are from the ginsenosides. 
But Ginsenoside availability and absorption is low in most ginseng supplements, so choose ginseng supplements carefully.
WHY BTGIN Gin Hongsam Saponin Capsule Plus IS SPECIAL
BTGIN Gin Hongsam Saponin Capsule Plus is an easily absorbed red ginseng supplement. It contains maximum Ginsenosides – above 8%.
BTGIN is a Korean manufacturer specialized in enzyme fermented ginseng products.
BTGIN ensures quality by sourcing and extracting their own ginseng and manufacturing their capsules in their own facility. This gives them far more control over the quality of the product than the ginseng brands that outsource.
BTGIN designs their capsules for optimal benefit and best absorption. Their goal is to provide a superior red ginseng supplement.
BTGIN Gin Hongsam Saponin capsules have powdered red ginseng saponin extract which contains over 20 types of rare Ginsenosides.
Each capsule contains 100% Korean Red Ginseng Extract Powder that is highly concentrated (Rb1+Rg1+Rg3(S) =30mg/g, Rg3(S+R)=20mg/g, CompoundK=5mg/g).
Best Extraction Methods
Research indicates ginseng extraction methods are crucial to the quality of the ginseng, especially the Ginsenosides.
SUPERIOR GINSENG Roots
BTGIN uses only 6-year-old ginsengs grown in the Geumsan region of Korea. This allows them to harvest the fine roots that contain the best and highest ginsenoside concentrations. 
Some supplements use all of the plant, but the benefit is in the root. BTGIN only uses the root.
