Study Shows Wisconsin Ginseng Helps Reduce Fatigue In Cancer Patients

August 19, 2013

After eight weeks, the group that took Wisconsin Ginseng showed improvements in overall energy levels.

Millions of cancer patients find themselves exhausted completing the most mundane of tasks, and extra sleep doesn't seem to help. Today, they find hope in a supplement that medical researchers have shown to be effective in boosting their energy levels: Wisconsin Ginseng.

In a collaborative phase III clinical trial, researchers at the North Central Cancer Treatment Group, and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, recently completed an eight-week study to evaluate the impact of Wisconsin Ginseng on the fatigue levels of cancer patients. They divided 364 patients into two groups; one group received a placebo and the other received 2,000 mg of Wisconsin Ginseng each day for two months.

At the start of the study, both groups ranked their fatigue, on average, 40 out of 100. After eight weeks, the group who took Wisconsin Ginseng showed improvements in overall energy levels, reported higher vitality levels and less interference with activity due to fatigue. Participants reported a 20-point increase in energy levels, which is statistically significant.

"Wisconsin Ginseng is well-known in traditional Chinese medicine to help with a variety of ailments, including fatigue," said Joe Heil, president of the Ginseng Board of Wisconsin. "We are very pleased that Western medicine is now taking notice of the health benefits of Wisconsin Ginseng."
