Swanson Premium American Ginseng Reviews

Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

American Ginseng is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from quality in decline Having ingested Ginseng one way or another for more than 40 years, I consider myself somewhat of a connoisseur. I have been buying this from Swanson for several years now, and occasionally I break open a capsule to taste the Ginseng. What began as a fine distinct Ginseng taste has declined to a faintly-flavored Ginseng chalk. AND the price keeps going up. Declining quality and increasing price?? I'll look elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good I wasnt expecting much from American ginseng. That is about what I got. It is a slight mental booster but I know that is overall good for my health so I can't complain

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product increase in my energy level and drive /motivation during the day

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than.... I would recommend American Ginseng over other flavors . It is a more potent breed of ginseng . It certainly aids my nutritional arsenal . When I run out of this product, and have not ordered more in time, I tend not to have near the ambition at work . Not to mention the lack of motivation when I get home . For, times when it seems I have been falling a little behind, this is an easy supplement .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from American Better I like American Ginseng better because I know where it is grown! And by whom! Polluted soil, water, and air lower the quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Swanson American ginseng becoz, traditionally, Chinese buys & steams the actual roots of the american ginseng, much of the essence are not decocted, hence the cost, efficacy & convenience are compromised. With convenient swanson american ginseng, I am getting every cent for improved mental alertness & healthier, not to mention feeling fresh in the morning.
