Erectile dysfunction can affect confidence and interpersonal relationships.
When a man has ED, it may have a negative influence on the quality of life, self-esteem and can affect several aspects of his life.
Erectile dysfunction occurs when a man cannot get or maintain an erection firm enough to have sex.
Many studies show that erection problem is common among older man.
Some study indicates that male sex drive declines from 87.7% in the age group 57-64 years to 38.5% in the age group 75-85 years.
Elderly men are often affected by several diseases such as artery disease, diabetes or hypertension and as they take a lot of drugs, their sexual function declines too.
One of the common causes of an erection problem is poor blood circulation in the body, psychological condition or other medical conditions that impact one or both of these factors.
While there are varieties of effective treatments are available for treating erection problem and one of the herbal remedy reported to treat the condition is Panax Ginseng.
What is Panax Ginseng?
Panax ginseng should not be confused with American ginseng, as they serve different needs and purpose.
Panax ginseng or Korean red ginseng is used as a natural remedy to treat a number of health conditions, including erection problem.
It usually takes five years to grow before it can be used.
This is why this herb is normally costly. When its roots are steamed and dried it is called Red ginseng.
Can Panax Ginseng treat ED Permanently?
There is no magic herb or magical cure that can cure ED permanently. As curing permanently mean putting to an end of your condition.
There is always a chance that your erectile problem can reoccur if you don’t follow a Healthy Lifestyle.
A healthy lifestyle includes good nutrition, daily exercise, and adequate sleep.
Panax ginseng may help stop the undesirable problem for the moment, but it is actually not a permanent solution to your erectile problem.
If you want to get rid of Erection problem permanently then it’s important to pay attention to lifestyle habits that can negatively affect the hormonal levels.
You need to stay from foods which can upset your body’s natural cycles and make erectile dysfunction problem worse.
You can consider avoiding foods such as processed foods, fried and fast foods to improve your condition.
It’s just not about avoiding but you also need to include some foods which will increase blood flow and energy level.
How Does Panax Ginseng Help ED?
Researchers do not fully understand the exact mechanism by which Panax ginseng might help a man with erection problem.
It was first believed to increase the testosterone level, however, when researchers have measured testosterone levels of men taking this herb, they actually do not increase the testosterone level.
One possible reason why ginseng helps ED is that it increases nitric oxide levels, which relaxes the muscles in the penis and promotes good blood circulation, allowing a rapid flow of blood to the genital area.
According to a study conducted in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, it reported that Panax ginseng improves the erectile function when compared with a placebo. (1)
Another study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research shows that red ginseng can improve the sexual performance.
In the study, 119 men with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction were selected for this randomized clinical study.
The participants either took 350 mg of red ginseng four times daily or placebo for 8 weeks.
At the end of 8th weeks the efficacy of the ginseng is measured, using the International Index of Erectile Function and also premature ejaculation diagnostic tool (PEDT) was assessed.
The researchers found that premature ejaculation significantly decreased and sexual performance improved in those who took red ginseng. (2)
