Ginseng a Natural Prosexual Herb

By Dr. Edward R. Rosic

Ginseng, often called the 'king of herbs', has been used in the Far East since antiquity. Chinese inscriptions representing ginseng have been found on bones and tortoise shells that date back to about 3000 B.C., and the earliest record of its being prescribed for medicinal use dates from about 500 A.D. For at least that long, people in China, Korea, and other regions of the Orient have used this remarkable herb to increase stamina, decrease fatigue, and give a boost to their libido.* Now research on the biochemistry of ginseng and on its effect on human sexuality is showing that these ancient tales are well founded in scientific fact.

Ginseng's biological activity is found in extracts of the root of the plant. Owing to the root's oddly characteristic two-legged shape, and the effects that the extract has on men, ginseng is often called manroot.

It should be noted that we are talking here about the type of ginseng commonly called Asian ginseng or, more specifically, Chinese or Korean ginseng. These are all the same plant, Panax ginseng, but different varieties of it are cultivated under different conditions and processed in different ways throughout Asia, so there are many variations on that botanical theme. As we will see, a high-quality variety called Korean red ginseng is of particular interest. (For more information, see the sidebar below.
