Siberian ginseng - Root powders


After the dry Siberian Ginseng roots have been analyzed and selected, a special machine grinds them into a fine powder. The powder is sifted according to the desired size after which it is mixed mechanically.

The fine powder from the ground "siberian ginseng" roots has a sieve fraction of approximately 250 micron.

Composition root powders

Some people feel that Siberian ginseng ground root powder is better than Siberian ginseng 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 Eleutherococcus root powders are free of carriers and additives. Of course we can add these upon your request.


For amounts less than 25 kg, Siberian Ginseng root powders are packed per 1 kg in airtight aluminum 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.


Siberian Ginseng root powders do not dissolve in water.

The color of the Siberian Ginseng root powders can vary from licht brown to beige brown.

The taste of this Siberian ginseng root powder can be qualified as sharp, astringent and a little bitter. As the level of eleutherosides rises, the root's bitter taste intensifies.

The active ingredients in Siberian ginseng roots (eleutherosides) are heat-resistant, and are not damaged or lost when heated.


Because the Siberian 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 eleutherosides 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 therapeutic results from Siberian ginseng root powders it is advised to take 2-4 grams of root powder daily.

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

There is no dangerous (damaging) maximum daily dose, but 0,5 mg of Eleutherococcus root powder per day is considered as a minimal dose. If you take less than 0,5 mg root powder a day it will most likely not contribute anything.

When mixed with other medicinal herbs, a lower dose of Siberian Ginseng might be sufficient.
