Approved by German health authorities to  promote energy and mental focus, but evidence is inconclusive.  Can be prepared as a tea but is generally taken as a standardized extract that provides 4% ginsenosides.  Typical daily amount is 200 mg of a standardized extract, taken as 100 mg twice daily.  Generally safe in appropriate amounts, but may cause insomnia in high doses.  Not for use during pregnancy.
