Ginger root | Zingiber officinale | Organic


Ginger is a popular spice, herbal remedy and cosmetic with a long history of use. Commission E in Germany has approved its use for dyspepsia, and this is corroborated by recent evidence that ginger reduces inflammation in the gut wall. (3)

The gingerols and shoagols are anti-inflammatory  via COX-1 and COX-2 inhibition which reduce prostaglandins and thromboxanes.  Inhibition of 5-LOX reduces leucotriene synthesis. (1)

Ginger is also a consistent antiemetic, acting on the receptor sites in the stomach itself. In pregnancy Ginger has been shown to be as effective as Dimenhydrinate. (1)

Topically ginger acts as a pain relief and anti-inflammatory.

A great review of the evidence to date can be found here. The strongest results were for anti-emetic activity, especially during pregnancy and benefits on the gut mucosa including improvement in the expression level of markers for colorectal cancer risk.

Anti-inflammatory effects in arthritis and period pain, in placebo controlled trials also feature highly.

Metabolic syndrome including Type 2 Diabetes also shows promise for treatment by Ginger root in reducing parameters associated with diabetes. (2)
