THOSE who love to cook and are constantly trying new ways of healthy living should infuse Korean red ginseng into their meals or consume it directly in small doses.

Korea Ginseng Corporation (KGC) has 120 years of world-class legacy and heritage, inspiring Malaysians to enhance their everyday health and wellness with the benefits of CheongKwanJang Korean red ginseng products.

“We are proud to continue our wellness journey in empowering Malaysians to adopt a healthy lifestyle through Korean red ginseng,” said KGC global sales manager Kim Ji-Hwan.

“With our CheongKwanJang Korean red ginseng products, we are always exploring creative methods to instil healthier nutritional habits and lifestyle.

“With Ramadan just around the corner, fellow Muslims should adopt a combination of balanced, nourishing and flavoursome daily diet to stay healthy and energised during the fasting period,” added Kim.

The popular CheongKwanJang Korean red ginseng extract comes in three sizes – 30g, 100g and 240g – while the Korean red ginseng extract Everytime is available in a box of 10 or 30 sachets. These products are halal-certified.

Long regarded as one of nature’s most prized herbs, Korean red ginseng has become a rising global health supplement for its outstanding efficacy in improving the recovery of fatigue, lowering blood glucose levels and controlling blood pressure.

During an interactive presentation with KGC Malaysia brand spokesperson Lee Di Von, who is also a VHealth Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Centre physician, explained the best ways for consuming CheongKwanJang Korean red ginseng extract.

“Consumers should start with a 1g serving and slowly increase to 3g as it is the optimum dose. When taking Korean red ginseng with other supplements, it is advisable to consume it one to two hours apart.

“Pregnant or nursing women and children aged below 15 should consult a TCM physician beforehand.

“Korean red ginseng should be avoided during menstruation, bleeding syndrome, when expecting surgery or when one is ‘heaty’. Korean red ginseng consumers should also avoid eating raw cold food, raw radish, green beans, licorice and greasy food,” she said.

Guests at the event were also treated to a cooking demonstration and workshop by international celebrity chef and media personality Anis Nabilah, who showcased unique ways of infusing CheongKwanJang Korean red ginseng into local delicacies.

Under Anis’ guidance, guests learned to whip up Sticky Date Pudding with Korean red ginseng toffee sauce.

The session continued with a special demonstration of Anis’ signature seafood curry with Korean red ginseng.

“While experimenting with the product-infused recipes myself, I realised that the extract enhanced the taste of everyday dishes,” said Anis.

“The extract also helps increase the nutritional values of meals without compromising its taste. I personally recommend Korean red ginseng-infused meals for health-conscious Malaysians.”

KGC CheongKwanJang Korean red ginseng products are available at leading retailers, including Isetan grocery store in Suria KLCC, BMS Organic outlets and Hai-O chain stores.
