Ginseng to increase fertility?

... Ginseng recommended me the healer (Chinese medicine), respectively. recommended her husband to increase fertility. I wonder what you have as an expert about ginseng ampoules that are sold in a pharmacy. Is the "power" of ginseng similar or is it better to choose the sliced root - for tea? Well, we'll probably combine it. My husband still has Chinese medicine to add zinc and calcium, I add iron (and other importance) and I believe we will get the desired baby :) ... Michael from Brno

Ladies and gentlemen, Michaelo, I have to say thank you to the expert who I am not - I would have to be an expert on too many things. I am, at best, a generalist. The information I am giving is not intended for self-treatment. Diagnosis and therapy must be determined by a physician who is as perfectly fit in herbal pharmacology as in industrial medicine. Doctors with knowledge of medicinal plants and TCM do exist, try to find such. So to come to your own answer, you first ask for ginseng and increase fertility.

Increasing libido, potency and fertility is a traditional indication of ginseng

Ginseng increases potency with at least two independent mechanisms of action . Its content increases the production of nitric oxide in the blood vessels and thus acts on the same biochemical cascade as sildenafil (= Viagra) - reduces blood pressure and improves erection . Its contents continue to affect many types of brain receptors , for example by improving libido. To improve sexual function, ginseng is recommended mainly to men, but it is also part of a combination made by world-renowned American ethnobotanik Dr. Duke to improve female sexual disposition . A more serious problem than potency is fertility. Increasing libido and volume of ginseng ejaculate definitely contributes to fertility , but is not omnipotent. If a spouse has little vital sperm, a miracle can not be expected. The problem may also be on your side. Inflammation, endometriosis, or even anti-sperm antibodies, in a bit of effort, will be revealed by a female doctor you've certainly visited. The gynecologist also tells you the optimal days for fertilization. The physiology of sexual intercourse is also important for successful fertilization.

For the fertility, the two-sided orgasm is important

Sperm have a flagella, but long-distance swimming does not show them - a strong two-sided orgasm is what helps them overcome the distance to the egg. It is important for a sex partner to be a person who is attractive and exciting. Only when the man is horny releases his testicles and supporting glands a sufficient amount of spermatozoids and seminal fluid that neutralizes acid pH of the vagina and breaks down the non-specific immunity of the genital tract. Sufficient volume is also a prerequisite for a successful delivery of seed to the uterus during anti-persistal periods accompanying female orgasm, which should follow shortly after male ejaculation. The woman must also be horny about her partner - just so her organs bloody well and dissolve the mucus plug that normally clogs the uterine cervix. Successful fertilization of your egg is not enough for one sperm because the egg does not accept it alone. There are hundreds of them to arrive - so volumes, timing, and the orgasm of both partners are important.

Can Sexual Excitement Be Improved?

Intense hypergression can be difficult to achieve in marriage because the long-term partner is well-inscribed throughout the brain in the brain of the brain (hippocampus), whose output pathway does not sufficiently stimulate the longevity-dependent dopamine leakage of the brain's tegmental region . Therefore, it is better to maintain a certain mystery in the relationship, which maintains a sense of novelty and interest in the partner. This answer would be too long if I decipher here on substances acting on the dopamine system in the brain (and thus improving sexual experience), which are not only harmful drugs like ecstasy and pervitin , but also some adaptogens. In addition, I do not even understand dopamine pharmacology: Adaptogens such as Rhodiola rosea and ginseng act on dopamine opposite to addictive drugs (as I know from literature), but they improve sex (as I know from practice) ...

What about female excitement? I know something about literature, but I do not have any practical experience. Even if subjects agree to the experiment, it is difficult to evaluate the results. These experiments have not been done on animals yet. I can only go back to Dr. Duke and his combination of support for female lust: Angelica sinensis - dong quai , Mexican plant Turnera diffusa , Epimedium grandiflorum (jin-jang-huo) , Trigonella foenum-graecum, and ginger ( Zingiber officinale ) . Ginger is best used young and fresh. The fescue is official in our country ( Trigonellae foenugraeci semen ), the deciduous trees and the heath are the TČM herbs. (He is actually our own ginseng as a ginseng radix album , which the Czech Pharmacopoeia simply says ginseng radix .)

The importance of solid pharmaceutical forms in the herbalist and the TČM

To the second part of your query: Ginseng ampules and capsules opposite the root. I would start by taking forms such as dragees, capsules, ampoules, tinctures, etc., to represent a higher degree of processing of natural material. Drug-treated medicinal plants allow for more accurate dosing or sometimes better content protection. The pharmaceutical form facilitates storage and use and gives the possibility to mask any inappropriate aroma or taste of the drug.

But: Higher processing and masking of taste and smell is not always better. Sometimes the difference is the same as between fresh strawberries and strawberries at any higher stage of processing, or between the "garlic" capsule and the toast with butter and the freshly peeled cloves of real garlic. A higher degree of grinding also makes identification of original materials more difficult and facilitates falsification. The doctors go to a Chinese doctor's office in their entire, undisturbed state, and then they are powdered, mixed according to individual prescriptions for each patient separately, and packed on the packing machine into ampoules or sachets directly in front of the patient's eyes. Therefore, also in countries such as Taiwan, where TCH surgery is as popular as MUDr. medicine, there is no dichotomy for / against ampoules - patients are seeing how their ampoules are made from raw materials and trust only the doctors they choose.

Red ginseng is itself a form of medicine

If we concentrate specifically on solid ginseng forms and red ginseng ( ginseng radix rubra ), premature dusting is far from proven. The red ginseng, in the dry state of glassy hardness and resistant to oxidation and pest attack, can actually be considered as a form of medicine, far more durable and more concentrated than ginseng dried (or white, ginseng radix album ). You can still see how the root was large and how many rings it had . According to the quarry, smell and taste we can even roughly estimate the content of saponins (which for high-quality drugs make up to 20% dry weight).

Hot ginseng capsules have their advantages and disadvantages

Ginseng capsules / dragees have their justification, for example, when we do not want ginseng to cook or chew, or when it is part of a herbal powder mix for a particular use. Disadvantages include the difficulty of assessing the quality of the content. Another problem is that capsule / tablet sizes are small, while ginseng and other herbs are typically consumed in gram quantities. Increasing libido would require daily consumption of dozens of ginseng ampules or tablets. This problem is generally solved in the TČM by filling the powdered herbal mixture into quite large sachets, which represent a single dose and are heated with hot water after opening.

"Ginseng" snacks and drinks are generally ineffective

In contrast to honest ginseng, there are dozens of ineffective "ginseng" snacks, sweets, drinks ... Do not let them dissuade them from the actual ginseng .


What to say at the end? Perhaps only the zinc, calcium and iron are (in the opinion of my former head of the Department of Physiology of the UK) well represented in the not too luxurious diet and for them it is better to get them from normal foods (try quality cheeses) than from the tablets. And there's something else - if the baby is loud, there's no need to keep an eye on whether your beliefs permit or prevents artificial fertilization.
