Ginger is also known as: Zingiber officinalis

Ginger, a multifaceted herb, is crucial in the battle against cardiovascular disease. The volatile oils of the versatile ginger plant are responsible for active medicinal properties, as well as for its pungent odour and taste.

Ginger offers substantial protection from stroke and heart attack because of its ability to help prevent blood clotting. Studies have shown that ginger deactivates the harmful activity of the so-called “bad eicosanoids” hormones which are responsible for blood clotting, constriction of the vessels, and inflammation. While ginger reduces the effects of the bad eicosanoids - it can enhance the “good eicosanoids” that reduce inflammation and pain.

Ginger is sometimes recommended as an alternative to aspirin for people who can not take aspirin because of its irritating effect on the gastrointestinal tract.

For centuries, traditional Chinese medicine has valued ginger as a tonic for digestion. It is commonly used for indigestion today because ginger absorbs and neutralises toxins in the stomach. As the ginger herb eases the transport of substances through the digestive tract, it decreases irritation to the intestinal walls. Ginger also improves the production and secretion of bile from the liver and gall bladder. Bile aids in the digestion of fats, which helps to lower cholesterol levels.

In traditional Chinese medicine the herb ginger is used to reduce the toxicity of some herbs. It is commonly used in Asian and Indian cooking.
