Red ginseng, white ginseng and ginseng capsules
@Donna- Blue ginger is a tropical plant that resembles the ginger plant and grows in a similar climate, but is actually a relative of the Wandering Jew plant. Blue ginger flourishes in Brazil and is cultivated for its handsome spotted stems, large shiny foliage and striking blue flowers.
Galangal, sometimes also called blue ginger, is closely related to ginger, and is widely used in medicine and cooking throughout South Asia, especially in Thai and Vietnamese cooking, where you may have enjoyed it in a classic spicy soup. Galangal has an earthy taste, but is much less pungent than ginger. Its healing properties are essentially the same as ginger.
