Godzilla’s Ginseng

Godzilla’s Ginseng
by Gabriel Constans

Ginseng is known throughout the world as a powerful tonic and energizer. It’s prescribed in China for ailments ranging from colds to impotence. You can use it in stir fry, salads, drinks, soups, and healing remedies, such as this natural breath freshener. It has a zingy taste that, like Godzilla, returns again and again.
