Medicinal ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a widespread spice plant, which in addition to the standard culinary use, it can also be used for medicinal purposes. The rhizome of the plant contains a very large number of various bioactive substances, among which the most active are unique gingerols and aldehydes (6-shogaol and 6-paradol).
Preparations based on ginger have a beneficial effect on the functioning and condition of the digestive tract. They facilitate digestion, reduce the risk of indigestion and heartburn, and are part of the prevention of colon cancer. Due to the antiemetic effect, they are often recommended to pregnant women, people suffering from motion sickness or sea sickness and patients undergoing chemotherapy. In addition, they have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. They bring relief in case of muscle pain after intense physical effort, relieve menstrual pain, and reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis. They are well suited for the prevention of civilization diseases, especially diabetes and atherosclerosis.
