How Long Does It Take For Panax Ginseng To Work?

Are you looking into your newly bought Panax Ginseng? You do not feel any different after taking a few doses? Well, that is because natural herbs and remedies take a certain amount of time and have a long-term effect.

Panax Ginseng has various benefits but needs to be taken in proper dosages and for a continuous period of time to have the desired effect.

Panax Ginseng

Panax Ginseng is an extract that has been known to work on many diseases, mainly erectile dysfunction. Research has confirmed it.

What is Panax Ginseng?

It is a slow-growing, short Asian herb. That has been used for centuries in treating and restoring general well-being. It is grown in China, Korea, and Serbia. At times many confuse it with American ginseng, which works as a relaxant.

Panax Ginseng types

The herb is found in three varieties, White, fresh, and red. Usually, red ginseng is used for medical treatment. The red variety is harvested after 6 years, and that is why it is very precious and has a higher level of antioxidants.  People with deteriorating health and men with ED should try Panax Ginseng.

Chinese Ginseng and American Ginseng

The Ginseng class of herbs is found in multiple areas and countries. But not every species is similar to each other. Their chemical composition is mainly Ginsenoside.

The Chinese Ginseng has more effect on the brain cells and increases antioxidants in the blood. That helps treat ED, cardiac disease, and even hypertension from the cellular level.

American Ginseng is a herb grown in Northern America as is known to boost immunity, cure flu and cold. It is known to have a similar compound resembling Ginsenoside that may alter the insulin levels.

Availability of Panax Ginseng

Ginseng is now available on the market easily, and it being a safe medicine, you can even buy it over the counter. The herb is sold in the form of tablets and also capsules, dosage varying from 100, 200,350, and 400 mg.

You can now also purchase it online from several sites; the common brand name is Gansa. But it would be better to get a doctor’s consultation if you have a diagnosed disease and are taking some other medications.

Assessed dosage and duration

Further investigations and research has provided a strongly agreed-up answer or both dosage and duration. If an erectile dysfunction patient took 0.2 – 9g daily four times a day, they would see a positive change in their erection within 24 weeks.

If there is less or no effect, then you need to consult your doctor about any other medication you might be taking. Ineffectiveness can be caused by;

  1. Alcohol, ginseng holds alcohol for a longer period in the body.
  2. Caffeine, They are known to stimulate CNS to a damaging level.
  3. Lasix
  4. Insulin and other diabetic medications.
  5. Anticoagulants.

Period of effectiveness and relief

Over the years, Panax Ginseng had many trials and research, and all of the researches had the same result. It does help in treating ED. But then came the correlation with dosage and duration.

One of the Randomized control trials showed firm erection in about 12 weeks, with a regular 600g of ginseng dosage. But it also shed light on other unwanted effects such as increased heart rate, irritability, etc.


Panax ginseng is a herbal extract used by the early Chinese and Asian civilizations. Today it has been emerging again as the restoring medicine for overall well-being. It is well researched and has evidence to prove its effectiveness.
