Sexual Development: For thousands of years, Chinese folk medicine has touted ginseng as a rejuvenating drug, especially likely to be used by middle and upper class populations. " To test these claims, several Russian investigators administered ginseng extract to castrated mice and reported that even a large dose of ginseng extract would neither prevent the atrophy of the male prostate and seminal vesicles nor promote pubertal development in female mice. These findings were confirmed by several groups of Chinese researchers, who gave castrated male rats either 20% ginseng alcohol-based extract or pure ginsenosides, continuously for 18 d.

8. This is additional evidence indicating that ginsenosides act o n the hypothalamopituitary axis. Histochemical analysis of animals that received ginsenosides showed an increase in the number of eosinophilic cells of the anterior pituitary. This suggests that ginsenosides act on the release of corticotropin releasing factor (CRF) from the hypothalamus, rather than directly on the pituitary gland. W. 3 Dose response curve between ginsenosides and cortisol plasma concentration. (From Wang, B. 4 Dose response curve between ginsenosides and CAMP content in adrenal cortex of rats.

Since the scientific study of ginseng began in the early 19th century, some components and their chemical structures have been elucidated.
