“Ginseng is the most famous of the plants used in Asian traditions of medicine. Why don’t you put ginseng in your herbal broth products?”

Great question!

Ginseng is a powerful herb known for its incredible health benefits. It has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years. Let’s dive into what ginseng is, where it comes from, and why, even though it’s wonderful, we don’t include it in our Herbal Goat Meat Broth.

What is Ginseng?

Ginseng is a root that is often called the “king of the herbs” because of its amazing healing properties. Ginseng is usually found in North America and East Asia, especially in China and Korea. There are two main types: American ginseng and Asian ginseng.

Health Benefits of Ginseng

Ginseng is praised for many health benefits:

    • Boosts Energy: Helps fight fatigue and increase energy levels.

    • Improves Brain Function: Enhances memory, mood, and cognitive abilities.

    • Strengthens the Immune System: Helps your body fight off illnesses.

    • Reduces Inflammation: Contains antioxidants that help reduce inflammation.


Big Bear Farm is well known for our unique Herbal Goat Meat Broth. Packed with beneficial ingredients like bone-in goat meat, black beans, barley sprouts, perilla seeds, ginger root, dried jujube fruit, and other prized herbs, many returning customers take this broth to help strengthen the body, immunity, stamina, and gut health.

Why We Don’t Put Ginseng in Our Broth

Even though ginseng is great, we don’t use it for a few important reasons:

    1. Energetic Balance: In traditional Chinese medicine, it’s important to balance the energies in your food. Goat meat is considered warming, and ginseng also is a warming herb. Using both together could create too much heat in your body, which isn’t always good for everyone.

    1. Unique Flavor Profile: Our goat meat broths have a specific, well balanced taste that comes from our special blend of ingredients. Adding ginseng would change the flavor in a way that might not complement the other ingredients.

    1. Health Benefits: Our broth is designed to improve stamina during the day, but also induce relaxation and sound sleep during the night. The bone broth directly helps to build your bones, muscles, skin, and blood. The herbal digestive aids support the gut and immune health. The ingredients that we use are known to have these benefits. Ginseng, while great for overall vitality, might not enhance these specific health benefits in the same way our current ingredients do.


While ginseng is an amazing herb, not all super stars mingle well with each other. Our broth is specially formulated with ingredients that work together harmoniously to support your health. We think it’s perfect just the way it is.

I hope you enjoyed learning about ginseng and our HERBAL GOAT MEAT BROTH product. Stay healthy and happy!
