2. Panax Ginseng: How Does It Work?
Panax ginseng can work in various ways to help you, a study that was published by the International Journal of Impotence had a look at the use of ginseng extract in 119 men who had erectile dysfunction. Each man was given four ginseng berry extract tablets that equated to a dose of 350 mg per day, others were given a placebo, and this was tested over an eight week period.
During the study and after, men were tested using two measurements: One method assessed premature ejaculation and other was based on the International Index of Erectile Function.
The study concluded that ginseng could be used as an alternative therapy to help improve sexual activity in men who have erectile dysfunction (ED).
It is not fully understood why Panax ginseng can help with ED, it once thought to be related to hormonal issues, but further tests have proven that testosterone levels are not increased when taking this supplement.
Another way ginseng could improve libido is by increasing levels of nitric oxide, known to improve blood flow and relax the muscles in the penis.
