Summary

Ginseng is commonly used for a variety of conditions where it is purported to have positive effects on mental, physical, and sexual performance. There are some data to suggest it may have some small positive effects on mental and sexual activities, but the data remain conflicting. Ginseng also can reduce glycemic concentrations after glucose challenge. It should be used with caution in patients receiving anticoagulants as reports have suggested it may reduce the effect of warfarin.

Key Words: Hyperglycemia; adaptogen; cognition; coagulation.
