Korean Ginseng is a popular type of alternative, natural medication that has long been used in traditional Asian medicine. Korean Ginseng can actually come from Korea, China and Russia and is available in a number of different forms, including capsules, energy drinks, topical lotions and concentrated liquids. Korean Ginseng is also sold at a range of prices mainly depending on the manufacturer and quality of the ingredient. Generally, Ginseng derived from older plants is more potent and ideally, it should contain an optimal amount of Saponins, a phytochemical that has a male active compound-like function in the body. For this reason, Korean Ginseng is particularly beneficial to athletes and body builders although it also has many other uses including the treatment of sexual dysfunction in men.
While the circulation-supporting effect of Korean Ginseng benefits many areas of the system such as memory, the immune system and appetite, it can be particularly useful in helping the male achieve a more powerful, firm and longer-lasting erection. This is due to the dilation effect that Korean Ginseng has, a process that relaxes and widens the blood vessels allowing for a greater flow of blood to the penile chambers. There have been scientific studies performed on Korean Ginseng and it has shown a significant improvement in the sexual activity of lab animals and in humans. One study showed an support in sexual function in men who took 900mg of Korean Ginseng three times a day for 8 weeks, although this dose is above the normally recommended amount of 200-300mg three times a day. Medical professionals also recommend that Korean Ginseng is taken every other day with a week off once a month for best results and also ensuring that the substance does not cause adverse side effects such as insomnia, jitteriness and headaches. Additionally, consumers taking blood thinners and insulin in particular should seek medical advice before starting any course of Korean Ginseng.
