Organic Ginger: Detailed information
Description and origin
Ginger (Zingiber officinale Roscoe, Zingiberaceae family) is an herbaceous plant native to tropical areas of Asia, India and China and has been used as a spice in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. The part used is the gnarled, tuberous, yellowish rhizome, around 5 to 10 cm long and 1.5 cm wide.
The genus name comes from the Greek ziggiberis derived from the Sanskritword shringavera and refers to the shape of the rhizome, reminiscent of “antlers”1.
Ginger has been used as a spice for thousands of years, and to alleviate gastrointestinal problems (vomiting, nausea, dyspepsia etc.) and other ailments such as arthritis and muscle pain2.
Many of these properties have been known since ancient times. Dioscorides wrote about this plant in the first century, and Pliny cited it in his “Natural History”3. In India, it is known as vishwabhesaj (“universal medicine”) and has been used in Ayurvedic medicine as solution for digestive problems, rheumatic pains, colds and flu4.
Ginger rhizome contains 4-7.5% oleoresins, which include spicy substances and essential oils5. The spicy substances are gingerols and shogaols, phenolic compounds that are the active principles of ginger1.
Extract name: Dry extract of ginger rhizome (from organic farming), standardised to contain 1.5% gingerols and shogaols.
Scientific name: Zingiber officinale Roscoe
Part used: Rhizome
Ginger rhizome is used to alleviate the symptoms of functional dyspepsia, a digestive disorder that usually manifests as epigastric pain after eating, feelings of epigastric fullness, nausea and swelling. It is also used to relieve the symptoms of kinetosis (motion sickness), such as nausea and sickness, as a postoperative antiemetic in minor surgical procedures, as antiemetic (anti-vomiting)5, and to relieve nausea and vomiting during pregnancy (always under medical supervision).
For digestive problems, take 2 capsules per day in two separate doses. For motion sickness, take ginger one hour before travelling.
The EMA approves the traditional use of ginger rhizome for the symptomatic relief of motion sickness (vomiting and nausea) and relief of mild spasmodic disorders of the gastrointestinal tract6.
Kinetosis, or motion sickness, is a very common problem in people who travel by plane, boat, train or car. It can come on suddenly, with a feeling of seasickness and cold sweats that can lead to nausea, vomiting and giddiness7.
Various studies support the use of ginger extract to alleviate the symptoms of motion sickness, due to the antiemetic and anti-nausea properties of gingerols and shogaols1. Ginger enhances gastric tone and motility through an anticholinergic and antiserotonergic effect (serotonin and acetylcholine neurotransmitters are involved in the mechanism of vomiting and in nausea), which reduces the onset of nausea and vomiting. It also increases gastric emptying, which in combination with the effects described above helps to alleviate the symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders2.
In addition to relieving nausea and preventing vomiting, the effectiveness of ginger extract was recently cited as useful for improving functional dyspepsia. This study demonstrated that, in combination with artichoke extract, ginger improved the symptoms of dyspepsia in comparison with the placebo8.
Finally, several of the phytochemical compounds of ginger were found to help relieve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, such as pain and inflammation9.
