What is Ginger?
Ginger is probably one of the first plants to be cultivated by man. Ginger is derived from the tuberous rhizome (underground root) of the perennial plant Zingiber officinale. It has been used in Asia for at least 5,000 years. The ancient Greeks used ginger to aid digestion to the extent that they added it to their bread; this was the first gingerbread. Ginger increases peristalsis, in addition to stimulating gastric acid secretion and aiding the expulsion of intestinal gas. Recent research is showing promise that ginger may be used to support cardiovascular health. Other studies indicate that ginger can be used for supporting healthy joint function. Plant part used is the root.*
