Dang Shen is commonly used as an energy tonic and is thought to serve the whole body by boosting strength, increasing stamina and alertness, strengthening the immune system, aiding recovery from serious illness, and stimulating the appetite. In fact, its properties are rather similar to Ginseng and has been referred by many as the “Poor Man’s Ginseng”.
Being an inexpensive and yet effective substitute to actual Ginseng, Dang Shen acts as an adaptogen and increases the body's overall performance in ways that enhance the whole body resistance against infection. Dangshen has been added to Power Up! Appetite to improve appetite and strengthen the immune system.
