The Powerful Combination of Jujube, Ginseng and Honey

My daughter gave me a box of Red Ginseng Honey Jujube Tea which according to the food label came from Korea. It is not readable because it is written in Korean. :-(

I have a lot of good things about ginseng but not really sure what to believe. About jujube, I must admit I am totally ignorant. So I did some research:

1."Red ginseng is Panax ginseng that has been heated, either through steaming or sun-drying. It is frequently marinated in an herbal brew which results in the root becoming extremely brittle. This version of ginseng is traditionally associated with stimulating sexual function and increasing energy. Red ginseng is always produced from cultivated roots, usually from either China or South Korea.

In 2002 a preliminary double-bind crossover study of Korean red ginseng's effects on impotence reported that it can be an effective alternative for treating male erectile dysfunction.

A study shows that Red ginseng reduces the relapse of gastric cancer versus control.

A study of ginseng's effects on rats show that while both White ginseng and Red ginseng reduce the incidence of cancer, the effects appear to be greater with Red ginseng". Read more here.

I got really excited. The timing is great because I have been kind of under the weather the past few days. Perhaps, not perhaps but I am sure, due to uncontrolled holiday eating of everything bad for people like me. Aaaargh!
