Ginseng possesses unique active ingredients through plant saponins called ginsenosides. When they were discovered during the 20th Century by Japanese and Russian scientists they began to catalogue them which caused an explosion of research, resulting in over 5,000 published clinical and research studies to date. This number continues to grow, with work by scientists in other countries, most notably America and Germany.

Ilhwa’s research has revealed that Ginseng has many other key ingredients in addition to ginsenosides which work in combination to provide such a remarkable effect. These are phenols, lipids, 18 essential fatty acids, 6 vitamins, 7 amino acids, 8 essential amino acids, fatty acids, and 18 minerals, including organic germanium and polyacetylene.

Modern western science now accepts ginseng as an adaptogen; a term meaning that the herb increases the body’s resistance to stress such as trauma, fatigue and illness. Most importantly, it restores the body’s natural balance.

Ilhwa is the world Leader in Ginseng Science…

Through continuous scientific research and development for more than four decades, Ilhwa has become the World Leader in Ginseng Science. The company is driven by a single passion…to bring wellness to humanity across the globe through this incredible herb.

In 1981 Ilhwa created a research and development center, applying the best in scientific research to create breakthroughs in Ginseng growth, harvesting, processing and extraction. This was a first in ginseng science.

Today, Ilhwa is a small high tech pharmaceutical and nutraceutical company with 3 divisions: Ginseng, Pharmaceutical and Beverage. They are fully KFDA compliant and GMP and ISO certified, holding numerous patents and the publications of 100’s of papers and clinical studies. lhwa utilizes the best that modern science has to offer in all of its research and development.

At the same time, it carefully honors and respects the integrity of this remarkable root, which has been used for 5,000 years to heal the human body.

Ilhwa creates the world’s leading 20th century ginseng extract…

Utilizing the best in scientific practice, Ilhwa paid close attention to the experience of customers, doctors and their patients. Through decades of consistent scientific leadership, lhwa developed the world’s most efficacious and balancing ginseng extract.

Ilhwa uses whole root processing without peeling, utilizing its own proprietary low heat vacuum extraction. The roots are harvested at the optimum time of 4 to 5 years. 
Most companies use the traditional 6 year harvested root which is more fibrous and possesses less ginsenoside density and balance.

GinST 15…the advanced High Absorption ginseng extract for the 21st Century

Although Ilhwa had created the most efficacious and balanced ginseng, there were still mixed results. The problem was absorption.

The unique active ingredient in Ginseng are plant saponins called ginsenosides. Ilhwa science discovered that ginsenosides are absorbed in the lower intestine. For many people this meant poor absorption and less efficacy. Ilhwa began research to a create Ginseng extract which would deliver a much higher, more consistent, and faster absorption in the human body.

Ilhwa developed a proprietary fermentation process to solve the problem.

The result…GinST 15. The Ginseng with 15 times greater absorption and 4 times faster absorption.
