Ginseng is a popular medicinal herb that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. It is a medicinal tonic that has been used as a natural remedy to boost overall health and people love to send ginseng as a gift for their families and friends.

Nowadays, people love ginseng because there are no effective energy boosters than ginseng. Ginseng helps people reduce fatigue and resist stress, without causing damages to the nervous system. People take ginseng as an alternative to coffee to support their busy workday.

Ginseng is a medicinal plant in the genus Panax, and there are main types of ginseng, namely American ginseng and Panax ginseng. Panax ginseng is also known as Asian ginseng, Korean ginseng, Chinese ginseng, and Ren Shen. The health benefits of ginseng are attributed to its pharmacological substances, called ginsenosides. Therefore, ginseng containing high percentages of ginseng is of high quality and great value.

There are only a few ginseng brands in Australia because the country is not the main producing region of ginseng, although it is famous for the health and wellness industry. We list some of the best Panax/Korean ginseng brands in Australia.

There are no many choices to buy truly high-quality Panax/Korean ginseng extract in Australia. Ginseng is a small niche market and a few companies focus on making a breakthrough in ginsenosides extraction and transformation. Like the majority of ginseng products on the current market, the ginseng brand listed above all features total ginsenosides which are less bioactive and absorbable. Ony a few companies devoted to transforming the less polar rare ginsenosides from the naturally occurring ginsenosides. These rare ginseng saponins like Rh2, Rg3, Rk1, aPPD, etc have better bioactivity and can be easily absorbed and utilized by human bodies.

We list two rare ginsenosides brands although they are available in Australia, and Australian customers must place an international order on their websites or Amazon.com.

1. Redsenol Noble Ginsenosides

Redsenol is an outstanding Canadian ginseng and ginsenosides brand featuring a high amount of rare ginsenosides. The research team devoted to ginsenoside research for over 16 years, and developed core technologies to produce rare ginsenosides in large amounts.

Redsenol goes much further in the ginsenoside research. Most manufacturers in the ginseng field only grasp the technologies to extract naturally occurring ginsenoside, known as prototype ginsenosides in ginseng. These prototype ginsenosides are high-molecular-weight and hardly absorbable, and some steamed Korean red ginseng may contain only rare ginsenosides Rg3, Rg5, Rh1. Incredibly,  Redsenol contains sixteen types of rare ginsenosides and the Redsenol research team grasp core technologies to convert naturally occurring ginsenosides into less polar rare ginsenosides. These rare ginsenosides including Rh3, Rk1, Rk2, Rk3, aPPD, aPPT, etc. are far more potent than prototype ginsenosides. Redsenol rare ginsenosides products are also available on Amazon.

Amazingly, the rare ginsenosides content in Redsenol-1 noble ginsenosides capsules reaches 20%.

As the biggest ginseng consumer, China is always a competitive market for ginseng products, and there are sure to be some high-quality rare ginsenosides brands. Chinese companies devote many funds and resources to ginseng and ginsenoside research. We can find rare ginsenosides brands on China's online shopping mall, JD.com.

In conclusion

It's happy to find that Herbs of Gold is able to standardize American ginseng to 30% ginsenosides and Panax ginseng to 25% ginsenosides, although these ginsenosides are made of less bioactive ginsenosides. If you hope to buy rare ginsenosides, you can go for international purchases online.
