Korean Red Ginseng and Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Korean Red Ginseng and ED

Red ginseng has long been used to treat impotence. But researchers are now studying the effectiveness of the plant. In one study, 45 men with ED were given either Korean red ginseng or a placebo.
The men receiving the herb took 900 milligrams, three times a day, for eight weeks. At the end of eight weeks, those who took Korean red ginseng felt improvement in their ED symptoms compared to those who took the placebo. Researchers concluded that red ginseng may be an effective alternative treatment for impotence.
