• Panax ginseng effects on male fertility

So I finally did find a human study, that suggests similar action to the rat model studies. "Abstract Sixty-six patients have been treated with Panax Ginseng C.A. Meyer extract, of whom 30 oligoastenospermic sine causa (group A), 16 oligoastenospermic with idiopathic varicocele (group B). Twenty age-matched volunteers were used as controls (group C). Use of Panax Ginseng extract showed an increase in spermatozoa number/ml and progressive oscillating motility, an increase in plasma total and free testosterone, DHT, FSH and LH levels, but a decrease in mean PRL. It is suggested that ginsenosides may have an effect at different levels of the hypothalamus-pituitary-testis axis." [url]http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9063034[/url] From this is definitely reasonable to assume that Panax ginseng supplementation does have an effect on LH and more interestingly, free testosterone levels, however, there's no indication of just how great an effect it has in healthy males. It could be statistically significant, but in real world application not all that fantastic.
so many long, funny words...
very undetailed. Short term effects only were tested as far as I can see
so my spermatozoa levels get increased, you say
