It has anti-fatigue effects which helps improve working and functional ability. Ren Shen can dilate coronary arteries, cerebral blood vessels, ocular blood vessels and peripheral blood vessels of the whole organism, while contracting isolated auricular blood vessels of rabbits and isolated blood vessels of rats. Extract of Ren Shen can increase RBC, Hb and WBC of rabbits. Ginsenosides can increase content of ACTH and corticosteroid in plasma by exciting hypothalamic or pituitary function, it has gonadotropic effects. Ginsenosides can also promote metabolism of lipids and biologic synthesis of cholesterol and blood lipoprotein of rats. But both Ren Shen and ginsenosides can decrease hypercholesterolemia in animals. Besides, Ren Shen can reinforce phagocytic function of WBC and reticuloendothelial system. It also has diuretic, anti-shock and anti-tumor actions.

Modern research proved that it has certain effects on animals with deficient Yang, which may be gained by acting on metabolism of cyclic nucleoside acid and prostaglandin. Coumarin/Osthole may be effective ingredient of Fructus Cnidii for warming the kidney to activate YANG. There is one specific prostaglandin that indeed plays a role in the male sexual tract, prostaglandin E1.In the words of medical researcher A.Lea:" prostaglandin E1 is a vasodilating agent which acts by relaxing the smooth muscles of the corpus cavemosum and by increasing the diameter of cavemous arteries; this leads to erection."

Osthole is a libido stimulator: researchers investigated the cavemosal relaxant effect of osthole, which has been long used in China as an herbal medicine to improve both male and female sexual dysfunction. The data suggested that osthole possessesa relaxant effect on rabbit corpus cavernosal tissues which is attributatble to the release of NO from sinusoidal endothelium and to the potentiation of the cGMP and/or cAMP signal mediating relaxation of cavernosal smooth muscle by inhibiting phosphodiesterase." (Corpus cavernosum = one of the columns of erectile tissue forming the dorsum of the penis (one of the two columns of erectile tissue forming the clitoris)).
