I am Fred Gates, a merchant of fresh North American wild ginseng (Panax Quinquifolium). Web site

As you are probably aware, fresh raw ginseng has the fleeting saponins as well as the wonderful ginsenogens which are present in the dried product. Patients, therefore, who use the fresh live product can expect to experience a greater therapy than as if they used the dead dried product.

See Chemical and pharmacological studies of saponins with a focus on American ginseng by Chun-Su Yuan, Chong-Zhi Wang, [...], and Lian-Wen Qi;
