Korean Ginseng Information
"Korean Ginseng", also known as "Red Ginseng", is derived from the same species of plant as Chinese or "White ginseng", Panax ginseng. The main difference is that Korean ginseng is steamed after drying giving it a red coloration and slightly different physical effects. Korean ginseng enhances physical and mental endurance and is especially useful for people leading active and demanding lifestyles.
Korean Ginseng's Health Benefits
Korean Ginseng is traditionally more associated with stimulating sexual function and increasing energy than Chinese ginseng. A 2002, double-blinded crossover study of Korean red ginseng's effects on impotence suggested benefits for some types of erectile dysfunction.1
