In TCM, Chinese ginseng helps to tonify the spleen and lung, and shares similar functions as American ginseng in tonifying Qi and alleviating shortness of breath and lack of energy. However, Chinese ginseng is stronger in tonifying Qi, while American ginseng has added function of replenishing fluids in the body.
As a herb that is neutral in nature, Chinese ginseng does not generate internal heat in the body when consumed. In addition to its Qi-tonifying benefit, it also aids in strengthening the heart and calming the mind and spirit.

In TCM, Qi and blood formation are supported by healthy digestion and absorption of nutrients — which are governed by the spleen and stomach. Overworking, irregular eating, poor dietary habits such as consuming cold or raw foods, and stress can weaken the spleen, thereby affecting Qi and blood.
Having a good flow of Qi and blood is vital in promoting good health. It is believed that blood and Qi are closely linked — blood produces Qi and Qi promotes blood circulation.
When there is blood deficiency in the body, it may manifest physically as a pale complexion, heart palpitations, headache, dizziness and breathlessness. Blood deficiency in the heart may also lead to sleep issues such as insomnia and dream-disturbed sleep.
