Good, although not jaw-droppingly awesome

Firstly, I'd like to point out an error in regards to how this is listed. The stated serving size on the actual bottle is 2 capsules (900 mg), rather than how it is shown on the website here (1 capsule/900 mg). So each bottle contains 180 450mg capsules or 90 servings. Also, this ginseng is NOT standardized as to ginsenoside content unlike most better quality ginseng extracts. For those not familiar with Korean Red Ginseng products, it is a sub-type of Panax Ginseng with a special emphasis on sexuality and blood flow to the genital regions. Other Panax Ginseng products also boast these benefits but to a lesser degree; however, White Panax Ginsengs usually deliver more in the physical energy and mental vitality department than Korean Red's. Redgidity is a good example of these trade-offs. If you are more concerned with an energy booster or a mood brightener, I'd definitely go with something like NOW brand's PANAX GINSENG -- far stronger than this one, a much better value and a standardized ginsenoside content. If you are only looking for a ginseng to produce more sparks in the bedroom, then REDGIDITY would be the way to go (if you are a man). If you are a woman, you will probably get better results with a White Panax Ginseng (greater libido, more vaginal lubrication, etc.). Lastly, the reason I described this as less than awesome: REDGIDITY will give you better and more frequent erections but NOT NEARLY to the degree (or value !) that yohimbe, tongkat ali, tribulus or DHEA will.
2 caps a day, 2 weeks - equals one very happy wife!

My husband has experenced some issues in firmness, since he started working the nightshift. We are also a bit past the flush of youth in age, late 40's. This stuff is wonderful, works better then other suppliments we have tried with no headaches, or jitters. Brought back the morning "perkiness" along with excellent firmness, better hardness, and longer lasting function. Well worth the cost. and will be stocking up on these.
Ginseng for all !

I bought this product after reading about its healing and natural energy effects and I love it. I had been trying to quit caffeine for over a year, but every time I had gone about three days without it, I would get excruciating headaches, and I would have no energy nor motivation. I finally got fed up with this and rather frightened when the headaches came just a few hours without caffeine, and I decided to research about methods of quitting caffeine. I read on the internet that ginseng is a good alternative, so I bought this product. It definitely got rid of the headaches and kept me awake all day with no crash and it gives me more energy, mental clarity and believe or not, I sleep better. I guess this product made me normal again, which is amazing for me. I was surprised and pleased by another, unexpected effect... let's just say it is basically like nature's viagra. There was a definite positive change in that regard, and since I was not anticipating it, it can't be placebo effect. I have since read that this is actually a common use for ginseng, and that it has been an aphrodisiac in Asia for centuries, as a benefit in psychiatric and neurological conditions, and for enhancing vitality. Korean red ginseng, a herb considered an aphrodisiac in some Asian countries, seems to be an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction. In some Asian cultures, ginseng has been used traditionally to boost sex enjoyment and sexual stamina. So it is not surprising that recent scientific studies have demonstrated that Korean red ginseng is able to dramatically enhance and help maintain healthy sexual function in men. These are gelcaps and are easy to swallow. They dont contain artificial fillers and are easy on the stomach. Highly recommended if you want to start on Panax Ginseng supplements. ---Side note---Be aware, some people may react to this product with the shakes, lightheadedness, and dizziness.
Best I've tried

This seems to be a pure and potent product. It energizes and relaxes at the same time. Very effective for midlife male grumpiness. I love to mix a capsule in a steaming mug of green tea sweetened with some raw honey...ahhh!
