Hello, im trying to find out about an article I read that states American ginseng helps control type 2 diabeties. Has anyone heard about this?
illinoislady responded:
I also did hear or read something about that, so I have started to incorperate more ginseng in my diet. Not sure if it is American or not. I buy in bulk dried or the fresh root and there are not labels on either. Fresh grated is great in a smoothie or added to steamed or roasted fresh veggies.

Are you sure you are not buying GINGER, not ginseng? That is the root I can buy in the grocery store and grate.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
