Best Ginseng Product on the Planet

By Dr. Bob McCauley

I am a connoisseur of ginseng.  I have been eating raw ginseng, dried ginseng consuming ginseng tinctures and drinks of all kinds.  I absolutely love ginseng.  GinST15 is an enzyme fermented that offer 15x better absorption at 4x a faster rate. ginst15-30ml

  • Homeostatic Balance
  • Healthy Blood Glucose
  • Stress Management
  • Mental Clarity & Focus
  • Immunity
  • Sustained Energy
  • Restful Sleep

 

THREE MAIN REASONS THIS IS THE BEST

  1. First, Ilhwa uses white ginseng root that has not been peeled, as peeling
    removes the minor rootlets and hair rootlets that carry key bioactive compounds. 
  2. Second, they use a proprietary low heat vacuum extraction of the whole unpeeled root, which maintains the vitamins, amino acid profile and organic germanium lost in the high heat steaming process used in traditional processing.
  3. Third, Ilhwa harvests the roots at the optimum time between the 4th and 5th year. In comparison, red ginseng extract available from most companies use the traditional 6 year harvested root.
  4. Finally and most importantly, Ilhwa uses a proprietary enzyme fermentation process to improve absorption. High-yield enzyme fermentation mimics the fermentation that occurs in the intestine to transform ginsenosides to an end-stage metabolite called compound K or IH-901. Compound K has been proposed to be the most bioavailable metabolite from colonic fermentation.viii 

Fermented ginseng extract containing this metabolite have been shown to have many adaptogenic qualities such as strong antioxidant,ix anti-stress,hepatoprotective,xi anti-allergy and anti-inflammatoryxiiactivities as well as support healthy glucose and lipid regulation.xiii In addition, GS15-4® has been clinically proven to provide 15 times increased absorption, 4 times faster absorption and 4 times more consistent absorption (Figures 2-4). In addition, the fermentation process also provides an improved taste profile compared to conventional ginseng extracts. Improved bioavailability means improved adaptogenic support for fatigue and stress.

Many studies have been done on GinST 15 which is shown in research via its metabolite ginst15-1marker IH901 and Compound K. One of the areas where Ilhwa has created numerous studies is energy creation, blood glucose and blood lipid management.

Il Hwa’s research is so substantial that they received a KFDA certification for a functional health claim for blood glucose management.
Absorption over time

ginst15Regular ginseng extract takes 12 hours to get maximum absorption while Gin ST15 extract will get maximum absorption in 3 to 4 hours. This illustrates the far greater absorption of GinST 15.

(Please Note: the scale of 0-50 ng/ml for Ginseng Extract and 0-300ng/ml for GinST 15. A different scale for each had to be used so that a comparison can be seen.)

Consistent Absorption
With standard ginseng extract each individual possesses different capability in img-6metabolizing ginsenosides. Absorption is inconsistent, and there is a wide range of average times in reaching the maximum plasma concentration.

In addition, only a small amount of ginseng extract is absorbed.

When GinST 15 extract is taken, absorption is approximately 4 times more consistent.

How is GinST 15 used?

GinST 15 has a broad affect on health and well being. It is virtually not contra indicative.

It harmonizes and augments a broad range of protocols and supplements. So the applications for GinST 15 are remarkably diverse as a stand alone supplement and as part of a formulation.

The GinST-15 Solution
As the world leader in ginseng science, Ilhwa was determined to find a solution to this img-4problem of absorption, and in 1999 they secured 2 patents for creating ginseng extract metabolites via human bacteria. They continued their diligent work in the next decade developing a high yield enzyme fermentation process with their famous ginseng extract creating 2 more patents in 2009 and 2010.

img-5GinST 15, the 21st Century Ginseng was born.

When GinST 15 extract is taken, a far larger amount is absorbed in the blood compared to standard ginseng extract. (15 times more AUC)

The GinST 15 extract provides 4 times faster absorption than standard ginseng extract.

About Bob McCauley

Bob McCauley, ND (Robert F., Jr.) was raised in Lansing, Michigan and attended Michigan State University (BA, 1980 in Journalism). He is a naturopathic doctor, Master Herbalist and a Certified Nutritional Consultant. He has traveled extensively, both domestically and abroad, visiting over 32 countries. He published Confessions of a Body Builder: Rejuvenating the Body with Spirulina, Chlorella, Raw Foods and Ionized Water (2000), Achieving Great Health (2005), The Miraculous Properties of Ionized Water, (2006) which is the only book on the market that exclusively addresses Ionized Water, Twelve (Fiction, 2007) and Honoring the Temple of God (2008). He considers himself a Naturalist, meaning he pursues health in the most natural way possible. He studies and promotes nature as the only way to true health. From 2002-2004 he hosted the radio program Achieving Great Health, which was heard by thousands of people each day. His guests included some of the most well-known and respected names in the natural health world. With the help of his father, Dr. Robert F. McCauley, Sr. (Doctorate in Environmental Engineering, MIT, 1953) they started Spartan Water Company in 1992, which sold vended water machines in supermarkets. Robert Jr. founded Spartan Enterprises, Inc. in 1993. He is a Certified Water Technician with the State of Michigan. He is also a Type II Public Water Supply Specialist and has the certifications of S-5 and D-5. The McCauley family has a long history in the water industry. Bob's father pioneered environmental issues regarding ground water and drinking water quality. He received his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1953 for his thesis on removing radioactive strontium from water. He earned his doctorate in Environmental Engineering in less than 2 years, one of the shortest doctoral studies in the history of MIT. He taught civil, sanitary and environmental engineering at Michigan State University for 18 years before retiring to run Wolverine Engineers & Surveyors of Mason, Michigan, for 17 years. His reputation throughout Michigan as a water quality expert was legendary. Bob worked for his father's company for 12 years learning the water business, which dealt primarily with municipalities, including water quality and sanitary sewer issues. After apprenticing with his father, Bob moved on to the bottled water business. He established greater Michigan's biggest selling bottled water: Michigan Mineral – Premium Natural Water. He was introduced to Ionized Water in 1995 and has done more to promote Ionized Water than anyone else in the industry. Bob often lectures and offers seminars on his Seven Component Natural Health Protocol . Bob is a Certified Nutritional Consultant and a Certified Master Herbalist. He is also a 3rd Degree Black Belt and Certified Instructor of Songahm Taekwondo (American Taekwondo Association).
