A recent study presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology determined ginseng may benefit the lungs of patients who suffer from cystic fibrosis. Mice whose lungs were infected with the bacteria aeroguinosa were treated with either ginseng or a placebo for the duration of one week. The lungs of those given the herb cleared more quickly. Subsequently, those given ginseng also lived longer.
