Ginger is derived from the tuberous rhizome (underground root) of the perennial plant Zingiber officinale. Ginger was probably one of the first plants to be cultivated by man; it has been used in Asia for at least 5,000 years. The ancient Greeks used ginger to aid digestion to the extent that they added it to their bread; this was the first gingerbread. Ginger is one of the best known folk remedies for stomach upsets, indigestion, cramps, and to dispel chills. Ginger acts as an antispasmodic, increasing peristalsis, in addition to stimulating gastric acid secretion and aiding the expulsion of intestinal gas. Recent research is showing promise that ginger may be used to support cardiovascular health. Other studies indicate that ginger can be used for supporting healthy joint function as it has been used in Ayurvedic healing. A double blind study conducted in England found that Ginger was more effective in relieving nausea and motion sickness than certain pharmaceuticals. The active constituent in Ginger is gingerol which is an oleoresin that gives Ginger its aroma and its therapeutic properties. The plant portion used is the root.

Our Ginger is standardized to 5% gingerols and is available in 120 count vegetarian capsules.
