There is some incredibly positive news on the horizon for suffers of ulcerative colitis (UC), an inflammatory condition with a high risk of colon cancer. It appears that American ginseng may be the answer awaiting sufferers of the disorder.
In a study preformed by researchers at the University of South Carolina, American ginseng was tested on lab rats, and provided hope that it may not only ease suffering, but that it may in fact both treat the condition and prevent it from ever occurring.
