Ginseng has some amazing and powerful effects. It has been shown to elevate mood, increase energy, and give a positive sense of well being to those who supplement their diets with it. It has been used as a tonic, stimulant, and regenerator for years. Quite a bit of research has been conducted on ginseng. Studies conducted in New York at the College of Osteopathic Medicine found that ginseng might prevent breast cancer, at least in a test tube. Studies conducted by Chinese scientists found ginseng possessed anti-aging characteristics because of its ability to remove highly toxic age-causing chemicals from the body. Not only does it show potential in preventing breast cancer, but also it shows potential in fighting numerous types of cancers, including: lip, throat, liver, and pharynx cancer. Studies also show ginseng increases immune function.
