WAUSAU, Wis., Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 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:
In a collaborative phase III clinical trial, researchers at the North Central
Cancer Treatment Group, and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., 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 milligrams 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."

supplements, one is the website for the National Center for Complementary and
