Korean Ginseng Berry Extract and Erectile Dysfunction

By: Dr. Gary Bellman on July 14, 2013, 1:01 pm

I am often skeptical of the effectiveness of the over the counter ‘supplements’ for enhancement of sexual function in men. I often worry they are not effective or can be harmful. Ginseng has been touted for sometime to have a benefit for a man’s sexual function but there has been little data to support it.

Researchers from Yonsei University in Seoul South Korea found that taking 1400 mg orally of ginseng had no risks and a slight benefit in sexual function after taking it for 4 weeks.
