Fertility is a natural process to insure the survival of human species.
Through natural selection, we produce many offspring when the
reproductive system works at it's peak in the suitable environment with
plenty foods around. On the other hand, the reductive system may
completely shut down or work at it;s minimum state and we produce less
offspring, when the environment is hostile including less foods around,
war, epidemic, etc. But regardless any situation. most women are capable
to conceive sometimes before menopause.

Using Holistic Ancient Chinese Medicine
Ginseng, the King of Chinese herb, according to the literature in
Chinese medicine may be the next single herb in enhancing
fertility in both sexes. According to the statistic from Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC), approximately 7.3 million women of childbearing
age (between 15 and 44) in the US are likely to have impaired
fecundity with 11% of population in the US alone were infertile.
Beside improving general well-being, the herb has been used in
traditional Chinese medicine to treat sexual dysfunction as well as enhanced sexual behavior(1).
Recent animal studies and confirmed in human case control studies,
ginseng had shown a positive effects in enhancing libido, and
copulatory performances(1). Ginsenosides, an active chemical compound
extracted from ginseng was found not only to improve the sperm quality
and count of healthy individuals and patients with
treatment-related infertility(2), but also
facilitate penile erection through directly inducing the vasodilatation
and relaxation of penile corpus cavernosum(3).
In treatment of sexual dysfunction, ginsenoside also induced Nitric oxide (NO) function in the process, involving
psychogenic and hormonal input, and a neurovascular nonadrenergic,
Dr. Murphy LL and Lee TJ. at the Southern Illinois University, School of Medicine, told PubMed, "Treatment with American ginseng
also affects the central nervous system and has been shown to
significantly alter the activity of hypothalamic catecholamines involved
in the facilitation of copulatory behavior and hormone secretion"(3)
In 30 male rats randomly allocated into three groups of 10 rats each: 1. controls, 2. diabetes (D) and 3. diabetes + ginseng (DG) study, oral administration of ginseng
extract showed a significant improvement of fertility parameters and
testicular antioxidants together with a decrease in malondialdehyde,
production of lipid peroxidation and prostaglandin biosynthesis and
testicular pathological signs including degenerative changes of the
seminiferous tubules(4). In infertile women with Polycystic ovarian
syndrome (PCOS), Korean red ginseng
extract (KRGE), lowered the high numbers of antral follicles and
increased the number of corpora lutea in the polycystic ovaries(6).
Ginseng is a slow-growing perennial plants with
fleshy roots, the genus Panax, belonging to the family Araliaceae.
Depending to the climate where it grows, ginseng can be classified
mainly into Panax ginseng Asian ginseng (root), Red ginseng, wild
ginseng, American ginseng (root).
The Asian herb has been used in traditional and
Chinese medicine to promote yang and to improve cardiac function, short
of breath, blood pressure. Panax ginseng can generates fluids and
reduce thirst, to treat anxiety, insomnia, dizziness/headache,
forgetfulness, impotence, diabetes, bleeding in the vagina not during
The composition of carnitine, acetyl carnitine, L-arginine and ginseng in treatment of men with asthenopermia promoted the improvement of sperm motility and enhanced libido and sexual performance(7).
Its nutrients and chemical constituents including koryoginsenoside, ginsenoside, ginseng saponins, ginseng
oils and phytosterol(4), carbohydrates and sugars, organic acids,
nitrogenous substances, amino acids and peptides, vitamins and minerals(5),
may hold the power of enhancing immunity through stimulating antiviral
cytokine IFN-γ production, improved survival of human lung epithelial
cells upon influenza virus infection, vascular dysfunctions, such as
hypertension, atherosclerotic disorders and ischemic injury, etc.(8) These
findings with the diverse pharmacological activities may be the reasons for ginseng to be named the king of all herbs in improved general well-being.
Taken altogether, ginseng, especially Panax ginseng and its major chemical compound ginsenosides
may be effective in enhancing the chance of fertility in both sexes, through vary mechanisms. Overdoses may cause nausea, diarrhea, high
