Asian Red Panax Ginseng and Testosterone

If you’re serious about raising your testosterone levels and packing on muscle mass, you need all the help you can get – and Asian Red Panax Ginseng might be the way to do it.

If you’ve looked into the nutrients we’ve put into TestoFuel, you’ll notice that we use 100mg of Asian Red Panax Ginseng in every daily serving of our Testosterone Booster.

With multiple proven benefits, and a body of clinical evidence to support it’s use, this form of ginseng has been shown to:

  • Improve Testosterone Levels – Faster muscle development
  • Enhance Libido – Stronger sex drive, more confidence
  • Increase Circulation – Better nutrient flow, better pumps
  • Supports Healthy Immune System – Prevent illness, healthier lifestyle

Originally used as a libido enhancer and aphrodisiac, this herb was recently discovered for it’s ability to also boost testosterone levels when supplemented regularly.

This is mainly to do with how this herb affects the insulin levels, there is a proven link that shows higher insulin levels drain testosterone levels and make it a lot harder to gain muscle.

Asian Red Panax Ginseng has been shown to lower insulin levels which by extension increases the amount of male hormone in the body and creates more opportunity for muscle gains.

Why you should be supplementing Asian Red Panax Ginseng

Also known as ‘True Ginseng’, and is somewhat of a super-herb with it’s ability to help with a large amount of functions in the body.

Unlike most of the minerals of vitamins we’ve covered in TestoFuel, the chances of you already having any of this nutrient in your diet at all is very unlikely.

The main benefit of from True Ginseng is how it aids testosterone production. With it’s ability to reduce levels of blood glucose [1], insulin levels in the body lowers which is linked to higher testosterone levels [2].

Ginseng can also help improve your pumps during workouts. This herb is great for boosting nitric oxide in the body, this helps with the dilation of blood vessels and increases your overall circulation [3] [4].

The benefits of ginseng also extend outside of the gym, with regular supplementation also being seen to strengthen both erections and libido – to the point that it can even successfully fight erectile dysfunction [5].

If you’re aiming to pack on more muscle and also get more out of your lifestyle, we strongly suggest adding Ginseng to your diet.ginseng-testosterone
