Ginger Root Extract / Herb, Benefits, Side Effects, Use - Dosage

Ginger Root Extract(zingiber officinale)

Ginger is well known as a support aid for travel or motion sickness, indigestion and nausea (including morning sickness).  It addition, as a warming herb, it has been used for chills, poor circulation, irritable bowel, loss of appetite, menstrual cramps, dyspepsia (bloating, heartburn, flatulence), and indigestion - virtually side effects free.  Ginger is also known for its use for joint problems.

Ginger, derived from the underground root ('tuberous rhizome') of the Zingiber officinale perennial plant, is also referred to as Jamaica ginger, African ginger or Cochin ginger.  Most people are familiar with ginger's role as a spice, condiment and flavoring agent.  For over 2,500 years, ginger has been used in Asia.

The active ingredient in Ginger is gingerol, an oleoresin, which is a combination of volatile oils and resin.  It is this gingerol that gives ginger its characteristic aroma and therapeutic properties.  Components of gingerol include zingiberone, bisabolene, camphene, geranial, linalool and borneol.

German health authorities concluded that ginger, at an average daily dose of 2 to 4 grams (2,000-4,000 milligrams [mg]), is effective free from negative side effects.  Ginger is ordinarily taken in the form of capsules but it may also be consumed as a tea.
