I was reading the study http://www.jurology.com/article/S0022-5347%2805%2964298-X/abstract about how Red Ginseng improved impotence. I can't say that I suffer from that, but it's a nice plus I suppose. the study is hilarious. They measured "penile tip rigidity on RigiScan." I wouldn't mind a Korean nurse (study was korean) measuring my tip rigidity with Rigiscan.
Good shit. I can't say exactly what if anything Ginseng in general does for me, but the science is good on it (ginseng in general). I take a mixed ginseng product as an adaptogen at times, so I can't talk about experience with Red Ginseng specifically.
I didn't previously know anything about Red Ginseng (I should say I don't remember anything about it, because I've probably read about it a time or two -- I think I forgot to take my Ginko Biloba), but I just was reading on it and it has a pretty high concentration of something called falcarinol which has reported anticancer properties (in rats anyway). It's a natural pesticide that keeps fungus from attacking the roots. Fungus (susceptibility to fungal/yeast infections) is also thought to be a cause of or indicator of cancer/cancer risk. Interesting. I thought pesticides were bad though. Hmm. I guess this stresses the liver or what not differently then other man made pesticides. That kind of makes me want to research this more.
