When ginseng is used in combination with other traditional Chinese herbs, the synergistic effects had many more definitive and positive results.

In some Scientific studies, ginseng has been demonstrated to have a stimulating effect on the pituitary gland to increase the secretion of gonadotropins. These studies also found that ginseng can enhance libido and sexual performance. These effects of ginseng may not be due to changes in hormone secretion, but to direct effects of ginseng or its ginsenoside components on the central nervous system and gonadal tissues.
