Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer, also known as red ginseng, is a fine quality preparation of an adaptogenic herb, one that helps your body cope with stress. It is good for anyone with adrenal fatigue, especially if sex drive or sex performance ability has declined. It is particularly rejuvenating to the male system. One study of men over the age of 55 showed that regular use of Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer significantly reduced all-cause mortality.
A new study documents that Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer protects heart cells from oxygen-deprivation free radical damage and significantly reduces the amount of damage from experimentally induced heart attack.
It has been known for some time that Panax ginseng can improve the production of nitric oxide, in turn helping arteries relax and blood flow better. Another new study with spontaneously hypertensive rats found that Panax ginseng induced the release of friendly nitric oxide (eNOS Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase. Type of enzyme involved with various physiological signals and maintenance activities with nitric oxide. ), improved the health of arterial blood vessels, and eliminated their high blood pressure.
A trial giving 2,000 mg per day for eight weeks to men with erectile dysfunction found that Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer significantly improved the problem. Better sexual function for men reflects better circulation and better release of nitric oxide.
Collectively, these studies show that Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer is a cardio-friendly nutrient that enhances circulation while offering protection to your heart. It is likely to be of high value for individuals who are excessively stressed and struggling with fatigue.
