Ginseng:  the best-kept secret to boosting love and passion

Despite Ginseng is a very popular ingredient in Asia to boost passion and sexual desire, it still remains quite unknown here.

Ginseng is the root of a herb belonging to the Panax of the family Araliacea. There are several types of ginseng that are commonly divided by the Asian, Chinese or Korean ginseng, or on the other side the American and Canadian ginseng.

If we actually look at the history of the meaning of Panax, we find out that Panax means “all healing” in Greek. It is not very difficult then to understand the importance of Ginseng throughout history in the field of health.

In that sense, it is also important to know that traditionally it is considered that each different ginseng has specific curative properties. As such if you are looking to have a great date, we definitely recommend the Asian ginseng that is meant to have “heating” properties. Romance will easily be within your reach.

Ginseng has high levels of ginsenosides, known for enhancing energy and vitality related to the sexual pleasure.
