About Ginger

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is one of the most popular herbal plants of recent times, Its earliest use can be traced back to traditional Indian and Chinese systems of natural herbal medicine, more than 5,000 years ago. The ginger plant is native to Southeast Asia where the locals used it as a tonic to take care of quite a handful of conditions. The ginger plant is a herbaceous flowering plant that has a relatively long life. The rhizomes, which are horizontal stems, are the usable plant parts. The plant is in the same family as turmeric and cardamom. The rhizome has a pungent, aromatic scent hence the reason it is used as a spice.

The ginger rhizomes do not have a regular shape. The shapes vary and they are either irregular, palmate or branched. The colour of the ginger rhizomes ranges, depending on different factors. The colours range from yellow to brown. Ginger contains a sizeable proportion of essential oils which are of great benefit to the human body. The ginger root, first became popular while being used as a spice. In coming up with ginger capsules, the ginger root is left to dry for a certain period after which it is ground and powder is derived. Harvesting ginger is quite simple since the ginger root is basically lifted out from the soil. It is later cleaned and dried in the sun.

Europeans were first introduced to ginger in the 1st century during the trade between Indians and Romans. It was also introduced to the entire Mediterranean region during this period. When the Roman Empire was conquered, which lead to the falling of Rome, the popularity of the magical root lessened. Marco Polo reintroduced it after he had visited the East. Ginger was greatly revered and was used widely especially in trade. At one point in time, half a kilogram of ginger had the same value as one sheep. Also, during World War I era, ginger was used as a suppository on horses due to its slight irritation properties. The armed forces handling the horse inserted a piece of peeled ginger root into the anus of the animal. The irritation ensured the tail stayed in an upright position which was ideal for the intended aesthetic purposes.

Ginger contains quite a number essential nutrients: starch, proteins, glycerides, fatty acids and volatile oils, among others. The volatile oils include gingerol, zingiberene and zingiberene. The essential oils are responsible for the fragrance that emanates from the ginger rhizomes. The bioactive components contained in the oily resin contributed differently to the numerous culinary and medicinal benefits of the ginger rhizomes. 

Potential Benefits

Gingerols, which are ketones, are also responsible for most of the health benefits of the plant. Some of the most profound functions of the ginger capsules include being used as an aid in digestion. It helps in rapid movement and emptying of food from the digestive tract thus helping with cases of indigestion and constipation. It also helps get rid of the pain and discomfort associated with the latter; it is causes by gases aligned on the intestinal tract.

The anti-inflammatory properties of ginger help alleviate muscle soreness and pain; this proves to be quite helpful especially for those who engage in strenuous activities e.g. athletes.

How to use: We suggest taking 2 - 4 capsules daily
