I am back on the Steve Harvey Show today! Please make sure to watch the segment.
I’m sure I’ll be getting many more questions from you guys about where to buy ingredients. I love hearing from you all so please ask away! I’m at @michellewpark or fb.com/michellewpark.
I wanted to post some answers here to the most frequently asked questions.
WHERE AND WHAT KIND OF GINSENG SHOULD I GET?
First of all, I buy all the ginseng that we eat at home from my Korean herbal market in K-Town here in NYC. If you can find a korean or chinese herbal market in your area, this is the best way to find ginseng because the owners there can help you pick out which ginseng is right for you! I prefer red ginseng with very long roots, but it does tend to get pricey.
Now, if you do not have a Chinatown or Koreatown near by, the ginseng extract we drank on Steve’s show was this one:RED PANAX GINSENG EXTRACT 6 BOXES 180 BOTTLES 6000MG(30 BOTTLES IN EACH BOX) but really you can try your luck with any of the bottled ones because they tend to be safe.
Full-Spectrum Korean Red Ginseng Root 400 mg 90 Caps – Swanson Premium
WHERE CAN I BUY BIRD’S NEST AND HOW DO I KNOW WHAT IS GOOD?
For bird’s nest, its a bit of a complex answer. Good bird’s nest is VERY hard to find. You want the kind that actually has a little bit of debris to show that it was really in the wild. However, you can find bird’s nest pre-bottled and easily available. The actual amount of BN that goes into these is less than you would have if you made it at home, BUT it is MUCH easier than sitting there and making the soup
Amazon has a couple different options:
Golden Nest Swallow Nest Soup Sugar Free Collagen – 6 bottles x 75 ml (2.5 fl oz)
I WANT TO TRY DEER PENIS! WHERE CAN I BUY IT?
An answer for all of you looking for the male virility booster known as deer penis in strong alcohol (baiju)
First of all, i admire everyone’s courage!
But deer penis liquor is a tough one to source. I buy mine on my way back from Asia whenever I go. They do carry it in Chinatowns around the country, so head to an Asian herbal store and if they don’t have it, they will know who does. But if you are not close by a China/Koreatown, this isn’t one that is sold online because of liquor import/export laws etc.
