Compelling research into the active compounds found in ginger - gingerols, shogaols and zingerone - is expanding the way we think about ginger. Its antioxidant properties and ability to support healthy inflammation correlates to various health benefits such as joint, heart, gut and metabolic health. Some of the fastest growing health concerns of consumers can benefit from ginger and its potential as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, digestive aid and its ability to facilitate recovery after strenuous exercise.
Numerous benefits in one herb
Ginger is widely recognized for its digestive health benefits, particularly as a digestive aid and nausea remedy. It also improves gastric emptying, increases nutrient digestibility, eases gastric discomfort, and reduces dyspepsia. Gingerol and shogaol stimulate digestive juices, such as gastric secretions, bile and saliva that break down food, reduce intestinal gas and move food through the digestive tract.
In addition to supporting digestive health, research shows that ginger supports and benefits overall health in other ways too. The main bioactive compound in ginger, gingerol, has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
