The ginger superfoods: the (unexpected) rhizome properties

Living Well

It is no discovery that Ginger has been used since ancient times for its flavour, cooked in a wide variety of sweet and savory dishes; recommended by Ayurveda, the surprising fact about ginger is association with an almost endless list of benefits for different cultures, such as relieving muscle pain, treating the common cold, constipation, fever, gastrointestinal conditions or even hypertension.

Fortunately, new scientific advances in laboratory analytics have made it possible to specifically isolate more than 100 different active constituents of the root of ‘Zingiber officinale’ and to verify several of these widely held ancestral insights. Ginger has been described as a medicine and Science confirms this: it is a potent antioxidant, which can even prevent the generation of free radicals and oxidative stress. But not only.


This rhizome, whose name comes etymologically from the Indo-European language and means ‘earth horn’, has immunomodulatory, anti-tumorigenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-lipidemic and anti-emetic actions, while at the same time having almost no known side-effects (consult your doctor if you may be allergic, could be pregnant or have specific conditions). Symbeeosis testing has shown that organic Dried ginger extract is rich in gingerols, which belong to the broader class of polyphenols; ginger therefore has antimicrobial, antioxidant and tonic properties and it helps against colds and fever, digestive disorders and pain.

It has also been confirmed that, surprisingly, Ginger has a clear sialogogue action, stimulating saliva production, which facilitates swallowing and digestion. Moreover, during 2019, a review of several studies in a peer-reviewed journal confirmed that ginger extract powder and capsules can reduce nausea and vomiting due to diseases or even agressive health treatments.
