Weight loss

Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is hard for a lot of women. According to studies, regularly consuming Korean or American ginseng root could help with that. In one study, participants who took Korean ginseng root two times a day for a period of eight weeks showed lowered body weight as well as improved gut health. In an animal study, ginseng was found to be helpful in preventing obesity by altering the formation of fat and delaying the absorption of intestinal fat in the body.

Sexual function

Women who experience low sex drive could take ginseng to enhance their sexual function. In one study, women were divided into two --- the ginseng group and the placebo group. Women who were given Korean red ginseng as a daily supplement showed improved libido, higher energy levels, and reduced fatigue, all crucial factors in their sexual performance.

Menopausal symptoms

During the menopausal transition, they experience uncomfortable and/or painful symptoms, such as chills, hot flashes, mood changes, sleeping issues, night sweats, slowed metabolism, weight gain, dry skin, and thinning hair. According to certain studies, taking ginseng could potentially help ease these. Menopausal women who took ginseng reported relief and significant improvements in their menopausal symptoms.


One in two women will get cancer in their lifetimes, and some of the most common types of cancer that affect them are breast, ovarian, cervical, and colorectal. According to research, ginseng could potentially reduce the risk of cancer and alleviate cancer-related symptoms. A natural compound in ginseng, called ginsenosides, could provide antioxidant and anti-inflammation protection and help prevent the production and growth of abnormal cells.
