American Ginseng Soup with Dried Fig and Papaya

american ginseng papaya soup

This soup is excellent for enhancing the skin and expelling heat from the body. Superb for our crazily hot weather these days! It is easy to make, and I cook this regularly for my family.

American Ginseng

Amercian Ginseng is cold in nature, taste bittersweet, enhances qi and expels heat. It may also help to fight diabetes, fatigue and the common cold.

Dried Fig

Dried Fig will sweeten the soup. It enhances spleen, moistens our intestines and helps to fight diabetes, bronchitis and hypertension.


Papaya not only helps to regulate menstruation, but it is also anti-inflammatory and treats constipation.
