Ginseng herb

Ginseng is one of the oldest and most revered herbs in the world. Few people realize, however, that the term ginseng actually applies to three different plants: Chinese, Korean, or Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng); American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius); and Siberian ginseng (E. senticosus). We will discuss just the two Panax species, which are very similar. Siberian ginseng, a different but related species, is purported to improve endurance.

  • Increases resistance to disease
  • Stimulates sexual desire
  • Improves brain functions

Ginseng appears to have a direct impact on male sexual fitness by increasing the production of nitric oxide throughout the body. Nitric oxide plays a crucial role in facilitating erections. Ginseng also increases overall stamina and vitality, giving users more energy. A study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research revealed that Asian ginseng effectively enhanced erectile function in men. Ginseng caused improvements in penile girth, libido, and sexual satisfaction. In another recent experiment, ginseng significantly increased sperm counts and testosterone levels in male patients with fertility problems.
