Asian Red Panax Ginseng & Testosterone

What Is Asian Red Panax Ginseng (ARPG)?

Panax ginseng is the most studied form of ginseng.

What Does It Do?

It’s most famous for dialating the blood vessels and improves blood flow throughout the body.

It also seems to be effective at boosting mood, immunity, and brain function.

Is It A Nitric Oxide (N.O.) Or Testosterone Booster?

As per its direct effects on testosterone, the studies are not conclusive.

Let’s dive in to the research:

  1. 60 men with mild or moderate ED were given either 1g of panax ginseng or placebo. At the end of the study, the men receiving ginseng had improved markers of penile performance (1). The effect on testosterone levels was not statistically significant.
  2. Men with poor sperm mobility experienced significantly higher testosterone levels after supplementing with red Panax ginseng (2).
  3. In yet another study, supplementing with red Panax ginseng was found to be an effective treatment for ED (3).


The bottom line is that Asian Red Panax Ginseng is an effective nitric oxide booster and potential testosterone booster.
