"We are thrilled with the investment that Prince of Peace has made to launch Wisconsin Ginseng in the mainstream market. Wisconsin Ginseng is typically retailed in Chinatowns.

Wisconsin Ginseng is known to support a person's energy level without giving them a boost of energy. The Mayo Clinic conducted a randomized controlled study of Wisconsin Ginseng in 2012 to test if it helps cancer patients with energy levels; a common problem with many cancer patients. The study proved that taking Wisconsin Ginseng increases energy levels in cancer patients with fatigue. The Mayo Clinic is currently undergoing a new study with Wisconsin Ginseng. Wisconsin Ginseng is also known to support immune system health and blood sugar levels, the Ginseng Board spokesperson concluded.
