Benefits of Korean Ginseng

Korean ginseng is ginseng that has been heated and steeped in an herbal bath. This recipe is thought to have other benefits in addition to those found in "regular" ginseng.

A known aphrodisiac, Korean ginseng has been shown in medical studies to be an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction. Its aphrodisiac properties seem to be related to ginseng's natural ability to increase energy, stamina, and circulation of the blood.

Other important, although perhaps lesser-known, benefits of Korean ginseng are its cancer-fighting properties. Studies have shown that Korean ginseng is particularly helpful in preventing a relapse of certain types of gastric cancers. There is also some emerging data that seems to indicate an ability to attack breast cancer cells.

Some other health benefits of Korean ginseng include antibiotic properties, the ability to help combat stress and fatigue, properties that can boost the immune system, and anti-inflammatory effects. It also contains a surprising array of nutrients, including 42 minerals, several vitamins, natural enzymes and amino acids.

Korean ginseng may be taken in capsule form as a supplement; take 250 to 500 milligrams per day for two to three weeks, followed by a two-week rest period. Be sure to inform you primary care physician if you take Korean ginseng, as the effects on your body may need to be monitored.
