You will no doubt be able to find ginseng in energy drinks, supplements, tea blends, and even shampoo and conditioner. The truth is you can find it in health food stores in the plant or powdered form, root form, and perhaps even in the fruit, so there is no shortage of options. I believe the tea makes a better choice for those who can’t stand the strong smell rather than the shampoo and conditioner. The thing that makes ginseng effective as a hair growth booster is a compound known as Ginsenosides.
