Ginseng and Cancer Treatment

Ginseng is an effective adaptogen and can protect the body from the stress of drug and radiation therapy. The stress normally caused by therapies can lead to secondary growths of cancer. Studies have shown, that patients taking ginseng daily could better cope with anti-cancer drugs and therapies.

Ginseng has shown cancer-preventive effects as well and may reduce the risk of some types of cancer. Studies have found that people taking ginseng were approximately 70% less likely to develop cancer compare to others and the more ginseng they consumed, the lower the risk of developing cancer was.

According to studies performed at the Division of Toxicology, School of Pharmacy, SungKyunKwan University, South Korea; especially in combination with vitamins A, C and E ginseng helps greatly reduce the risk of cancer caused by smoking.

During daily supplementation of antioxidants and ginseng in this research (200 IU vitamin of E, 9 mg of beta-carotene, 500 mg of vitamin C, or 1.8 g of red ginseng) for 4 weeks, the smokers antioxidant concentrations were found to significantly increase, compared with those supplemented with a placebo tablet. This data suggests that supplementation with antioxidants might protect smokers from oxidative damages and could reduce cancer risk or other diseases caused by free radicals associated with smoking.
