2. Panax Ginseng Benefits
Panax Ginseng has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. People mainly used it to:
- increase your energy
- decrease your stress
- treat impotency
- treat diabetes
- boost your immune system
- improve your heart health
But let’s have a look at the benefits a bit more in details.
1. Panax Ginseng Can Improve Your Cognitive Performance
Panax Ginseng is most known for its benefits for improving cognitive performance, especially our memory. 
Actually, there is a study which followed 30 healthy people who consumed 200 mg of Panax ginseng for about four weeks. The result? Improvement in mental health, social functioning, and mood.

I found another study which examined how a single dose of either 200 or 400 mg of Panax ginseng affects mental performance in healthy adults before and after a 10-minute mental test. Save
The result? Unexpectedly, the 200-mg dosage was more effective, but both dosages improved mental performance of people.  We still don’t know why the lower dosage was more effective, but it gives a great indication of how much Ginseng should we supplement on a daily basis.
There are other studies that show positive benefits of supplementing Ginseng on our cognitive performance: One study found positive effects in people with Alzheimer’s, another study shows that 400 mg of Panax Ginseng improves math skill in people.  
2. Panax Ginseng Increases Energy
Panax Ginseng is often used as an energy booster. It’s known that when combined with caffeine, it can provide even stronger effects.
Various studies show positive benefits, but there is one study I’d like to point to.
This study shows that supplementing up to 2 grams of Panax Ginseng per day increased energy in people with chronic fatigue, while they experienced less mental and physical fatigue. 
Another study that looked at 155 other studies shows that supplementing Panax Ginseng can also improve physical activity in healthy people. 
If we also consider animal studies, we know that Panax Ginseng contains compounds that can lower oxidative stress, and increase energy production in cells.

3. Panax Ginseng Can Decrease Inflammation
Not only is Panax Ginseng an effective nootropic, but it can provide a whole range of health effects.
One of them is its effect on inflammation.
As you might know, Panax Ginseng contains compounds that have anti-inflammatory properties. 
One study investigated the effects of supplementing 2 grams of Korean red ginseng extract three times per day for a week.
What did the study find?
Well, people who were given Ginseng supplements had significantly lower inflammation markers. 
Another study followed 71 postmenopausal women who took 3 grams of red ginseng per day for 12 weeks. The research concludes that Ginseng can reduce oxidative stress and increase enzyme activities in people. 
There are other studies done on animals but are less relevant for people.
4. Panax Ginseng Can Improve Erectile Dysfunction
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.
5. Panax Ginseng Can Boost Immune System
As I mentioned earlier, Panax Ginseng contains anti-inflammatory compounds, but also antioxidants.
Most studies have been done on people with cancer (and not on healthy people), but the results have been very promising.
One particular study shows that taking red ginseng extract improved immune system markers in people with advanced stomach cancer in just 3 months. 
What’s even more interesting is that the same study suggested that people who regularly supplement Ginseng have a higher chance of living a life without any diseases.
How much higher?
Stunning 35% higher chance for a disease-free life, and 38% higher survival rate. How cool is that?
