How Ginseng Can Benefit Men's Health

According to WebMD, erectile dysfunction is one of the most common sex-related symptoms among the US male population. You may think “Well, that’s not a big deal. It’s not life or death,” yet erectile dysfunction is closely related to men’s psychological health and self-image. The colossal market size of prescription medications for ED proves the importance of “getting hard down there.”

As we all know, people often equate sexual stamina with dominant masculinity, thus men are interested in “mojo for a good time.” According to the Annals of Joseon Dynasty, King Yeon-san was a very lustful king and he took Korean Red Ginseng to have a fun time with his hundreds of concubines. The book is mostly anecdotal rather than scientific, but King Yeon-san seemed to know how to boost his stamina very well.

Korean Ginseng Root

Hundreds of studies support Korean Red Ginseng root as an alternative treatment for erectile dysfunction. From the clinical research of de Andrade E, 67% of patients reported an improvement in erectile dysfunction after taking Korean Red Ginseng. Scientist Kopalli’s research proved the mechanism of Korean Red Ginseng Extract for rejuvenating the testicular ineffectiveness and sperm maturation process in rats through regulation of the oxidative defense mechanism.

Liu’s research and many other researchers suggest RG3 (a type of active ingredient that can be isolated from Panax Ginseng) can activate the large conductance K-Ca channels in human corporal smooth muscle cells, thus upregulating the mechanism of action on penile erection.

Korean Red Ginseng offers numerous health benefits, but it can also enhance mojo for quality time in the bedroom.
