The queen of medicinal plants

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea decided to participate in Expo Milano 2015 with a focus on ginseng, an ingredient known since antiquity. In the pavilion, which is divided into two sections, visitors can discover the virtues of this plant, whether used as food or as medicine, for more than five thousand years. Among the hundreds and hundreds of species in the world that are used for health, only Kaesong Koryo Insam (Korean ginseng) has been recognized as the queen of medicinal plants.
