Everything you need to know about ginseng

Recognised for millennia as a plant with a thousand properties on the body and mind, ginseng is a miraculous root. A sexual stimulant, ginseng root can awaken low libidos and counteract a variety of sexual problems including impotence, infertility, ovulation, and ejaculation. Active on vitality in general, ginseng is an excellent stimulant of the body but also of the spirit. It is known for increasing memory skills, reducing stress, increasing self-confidence, and helping students in exams to increase intellectual ability. With more powerful assets than coffee or tea for example, it does not tire the heart but, on the contrary, prolongs energy over time without being dangerous for the body.

Benefits of ginseng

Nicknamed the 'root of life,' ginseng is extremely rich in essential amino acids, in many minerals (magnesium, iron, manganese, calcium, zinc, ...) and in vitamins A, C and all those of group B. Acting on the adrenal glands, it enables the secretion in greater quantities of the hormones involved in these glands: adrenaline (for dynamism) and cortisol (natural regulator of blood sugar, which will help regulate sugar cravings). As a stimulator of the sex glands, ginseng offers the possibility of activating hormones such as testosterone, dopamine, estrogen, and progesterone. This active release of hormones specific to desire and procreation can be a real solution for individuals who face libido or fertility problems.


With a price per kilo of around £2700, ginseng is a source of miracle benefits that suffers from its success. You can buy ginseng capsules in pharmacies, powders to dilute in specialised stores or buy fresh roots and to dry them to use as infusions. Beware of cheap ginseng products on the internet as the origin and composition of these products may not be as claimed. You should always seek the advice of a professional before embarking on any course of medical treatment.
