Currently there are many types of herbal treatments that are claimed to be able to overcome various male sexual problems, such as erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence. One of the herbs that is quite popular is Korean ginseng. The benefits of ginseng for male sexual health are believed to be very effective.
Is that really true? Do not let you be fooled into advertising, it's better to read the following full explanation first.
Benefits of ginseng for male sexual health
Ginseng, which is widely sold in the form of herbal supplements, is believed to be the answer to the various complaints of men in bed. However, is there already strong scientific evidence that supports the claims of the various benefits of ginseng? Check out the answer below.
1. Increase stamina and sexual satisfaction
For centuries, Asian people have explored the benefits of ginseng to increase energy. Therefore, ginseng is also believed to increase stamina when making love so sex becomes more enjoyable. Unfortunately, very few studies have uncovered the benefits of ginseng to increase stamina and enjoyment of sex.
A study from the University of Maryland Medical Center in the United States (US) once noted that ginseng might arouse sexual arousal. However, researchers have not yet known how exactly ginseng can produce these effects. The scope of this study is also very limited so the results cannot be said to be valid.
2. Treating impotence
Ginseng has not proven effective in treating erectile dysfunction, aka impotence. Research by experts from South Korea in the International Journal of Impotence Research reveals that the benefits of ginseng to improve erectile function are no more efficacious than empty drugs (placebo).
Other studies in the Journal of Urology show that drinking ginseng supplements three times a day can reduce symptoms of erectile dysfunction. However, this study was of a very limited nature because it only involved a total of 45 study participants who experienced mild to moderate erectile dysfunction.
3. Increase fertility
Researchers from the University of Maryland Medical Center in the US see that ginseng can increase the number and quality of sperm cells in animal research subjects. To prove the efficacy of ginseng for male fertility, further research is still needed on the subject of human research.
4. Overcoming premature ejaculation
To overcome the problem of premature ejaculation, ointments from various herbal ingredients including ginseng seem to be quite useful. When compared with empty drugs, ginseng ointment is indeed only slightly superior. However, for those of you who have problems with premature ejaculation that are not too serious, ginseng can certainly help delay ejaculation while making love.
However, deeper research is still needed to prove how effective herbal treatment with ginseng is for the problem of male premature ejaculation.
Is it safe to consume ginseng regularly?
Before starting herbal medicine with ginseng, consult your doctor and certified herbalist first. Because, ginseng can react with certain drugs and may cause dangerous side effects.
Consumption of ginseng can increase risks such as hypertension (high blood pressure), palpitations, difficulty sleeping, diarrhea, headaches, and a rash on the skin. In addition, ginseng can also react with blood thinners, insulin for people with diabetes, hypertension drugs, and stimulant drugs such as caffeine.
If you have a serious sexual problem, the right step is to see a doctor immediately. Treatment and treatment of sexual problems from doctors has been clinically tested and proven to be more effective than various alternative treatments.
However, if you really want to undergo herbal medicine as a supporter of medicine from a doctor, make sure the supplement has obtained permission from the POM and SNI.
