Ginseng is found in many teas, powders, extracts, tablets and soft drinks. Ginseng is primarily marketed as an aphrodisiac, an adaptogen (which is substance which builds resistance to stress), a fat burner, or an antioxidant.

Studies: There is no proof that ginseng actually works as a sexual performace enhancer. However, some studies suggest that it may positively influence stress. There is no significant research to date that suggests that Ginseng will actually enhance athletic performance.
