It takes over 14 grams of fresh ginger root to produce the amount of concentrated extract found in each of these capsules! Each capsule provides 24mg of gingerols, which are volatile compounds that are easily lost if ginger is cooked, dried or crystallised. Very few supplements provide this level of gingerols, and in fact many do not even declare a level on the label.
The dark rich concentrated ginger paste is dissolved into sunflower oil and supplied in capsules. Using this method ensures that the active constituents such as the gingerols and zingerone are preserved.
Ginger has a long history of use particularly as an aid to digestion since its ‘warming’ properties means it has a settling effect on the system. From ancient India and China to Greece and Rome, ginger was revered as a culinary and medicinal spice. Ginger is still widely used to prevent motion sickness and as remedy for digestive problems. It is native to parts of India and China as well as Jamaica and other tropical areas.
For thousands of years, all around the globe, this pungent spice has been popular as a treatment for digestive problems ranging from mild indigestion and flatulence to nausea and vomiting. It has also been used to relieve colds and arthritis. More recently ginger supplements have been recommended as part of joint care programs, alongside products such as glucosamine and fish oil.
