How can one herb work on many body systems?

Ginseng has over 30 biologically active substances - ginsenosides, polysaccharides and others. These act on the body in different ways, and some actually have an opposite effect to others. However it's the overall balance that's important. That's why Simply Ginseng chooses to deal only in whole pure root rather than extracts. When some of the 30 bioactives are lost during processing, the remarkable adaptogenic effect of ginseng could be lost or weakened.
