Composition root powders

Some people feel that ground root powder is better than extract-powder.
This is based on the assumption that the ground root powder is closer to the original plant and contains more of the naturally present ingredients. They believe some of these valuable constituents could have been lost in the extraction process.

There are some exceptions, but almost all Brazilian ginseng root powders are free of carriers and additives. Of course we can add these upon your request.


For amounts less than 25 kg, Brazilian ginseng root powders are packed per 1 kg in airtight aluminium bags with PE-inner layer. Bags with 5 kg are also available.

The 25 kg packaging are packed in standard plastic bags in cardboard boxes or barrels.


Ground Brazilian ginseng root powders do not dissolve in water.

The colour of the Brazilian ginseng root powders can vary from light brown to beige brown.

Brazilian ginseng root powder has a vanilla like flavor and a quite bitter taste.


Because the Brazilian ginseng root powder is not that expensive, usually no fillers are added to it.

Sometimes, for other (process technological) reasons, additives like dicalcium phosphate, malto dextrin, silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate or glucose powder are added.
Of course other additives, carriers or fillers are possible too.


In-vitro-tests have shown that the absorption of active constituents from extracts is double the absorption of dried roots or root powders. Counted in milligrams, this means that in order to get the same results a double dose of ground root powders is needed in comparison to extract powders.

For optimal results from Brazilian ginseng root powders it 0is advised to take a daily dose from at least 2 grams to a maximum of 10 grams root powder per day.

Practical experiences have demonstrated that activity and effects of Brazilian ginseng root powders do not decline proportionally as the daily dose is lowered.

There is no dangerous (irrevocable harmful) maximum daily dose known, but 2 grams of dried Brazilian ginseng root powder per day is considered as a minimal dose. If you take less than this, it will most likely not contribute anything.

When mixed with other medicinal herbs, a lower dose of Brazilian ginseng might be sufficient.
