|ILHWA American, was founded in 1975, with a long range goal to "Make America Healthy". Though some faces changed and
modifications have been made to the ILHWA product line over the years, ILHWA has held to this goal by continuing to
manufacture, distribute and represent only the brand with the highest reputation for quality, with our promise of
"ILHWA", two Korean words which means "one harmony", exemplifies the spirit and purpose of natural well-being. The ILHWA
Company is dedicated to creating natural ginseng products of superior quality. Ginseng, a sensitive natural food that
requires special handling and care. Therefore, a special process was developed and patented to extract ginseng at low
temperatures, which preserves the essential, vital elements of the root. (Conventional processing often boils the roots,
destroying many of the elements) Also, at ILHWA only fresh, whole, 6-year old (fully mature) roots are used exclusively.
Uses of Ginseng
Ancient Chinese medicine and modern scientific experiments suggest the following uses for Korean ginseng.
- Stimulant: Ginseng has been shown to be safe, effective, natural stimulant with many advantages over others such as caffeine
and amphetamines. It is not an excitant, that is, causing over stimulation.
- Tonic: The traditional oriental view of ginseng is as long-term restorative. In countries where doctors are paid only when their patients stay well, ginseng appears in nearly all the natural preparations with immune-enhancing, harmonizing purposes.
- Mental Benefits: Russian experiments have shown that ginseng improves the mental state of the elderly. It can be recommended for depression and insomnia, as it has been documented to raise the spirits and improve outlook on life.
- Anti-stress: Ginseng's adaptogenic, or normalizing, action helps the body to adapt to all types of stress. By improving the
efficiency of body systems, the defense forces are strengthened as well.
- Regulating Blood Pressure: Clinical trials have shown ginseng to be a mild regulator of high or low blood pressure. The Chinese have always included ginseng in medicines for those suffering from heart attack or heart disease.
- Anti-Diabetic: Evidence shows that ginseng can help to regulate blood sugar levels. With doctor's consent, it may be taken
in addition to prescribed drugs without risk of incompatibility.
- Against Impotence: Ginseng may help certain cases of physical impotence, particularly resulting from a general lack of vitality.
- Health in old age: The effects of ginseng are cumulative. With regular use, it is thought to not only increase health and vitality, but will also prolong life.
ISO 9000 Certification

How ILHWA products are made
Made exclusively from 6 year old, fresh, whole Korean Ginseng roots. Ginsenosides grow into the root between the 4th and
5th year. Younger roots are not as potent. Utilizes a "whole root" extraction, rather than "standardized". ILHWA is the
only Ginseng Company to guarantee the use of only 6 year old fresh (not dried) roots in its products.
A patented low temperature extraction process is used, in place of 'boiling’ the Ginseng roots. This insures Ginseng Concentrate
that is "alive" with active B vitamins, trace minerals (42), Ginsenosides, and 14 Saponins OR Panaxosides. Unlike other
brands, the ILHWA extraction process utilizes a "1 time only extraction" for the fresh, 6 year old roots. Because no high
temperatures are used, ILHWA doesn’t have the "bunt" taste that most Ginseng brands do. It is however a strong taste,
because of the purity and potency of the brand.
Korea National Tourism Organization's Certification Mark
In September 1999, Ilhwa won the Chairman's honor, the highest honor in the food sector, for its Korea Ginseng Gift Set at
the 2nd annual contest sponsored by the Korea Traditional Processed Foods Association. The event is held each year in
promotion of Korea's tourism souvenirs that possess international competitiveness as well as qualities that are special
