American ginseng (Panax quinquefolium) has been found to be a "non-specific" restorative and rejuvenating tonic. It helps to balance the body's metabolism, increase the body's ability to deal with stress, and through these actions stimulates both mental and physical activity especially of the weak and aged. Ginseng has been found beneficial and stimulating to the endocrine glands which are the principla regulators of, among other things, hormone flow. It is probably this property that gives Ginseng the highly publicized and exaggerated reputation of being an aphrodisiac.
