Notes for this study:
In this randomized controlled trial, 20 male bodybuilders consumed either 250mg of ginseng or an identical placebo taken twice a day for 6 weeks. Blood samples (measuring testosterone and cortisol), BMI, waist-to-hip ratio, bench press strength, and leg press strength were measured before supplementation, after supplementation, and after their usual bodybuilding training sessions.
