Zingiber Officinale Extract
Almost no other plant has so many different active components analysed and identified as ginger (Zingiber officinale). Looking at the history of ginger, it is notable that its traditional use was mainly to support the digestive system.
Nowadays we know that ginger root extract can be used for many other purposes. Of course ginger promotes the digestive system, which improves the absorption of nutrients. But ginger also protects the stomach and the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal tract, stimulates bile secretion and protects the liver. Ginger is also very well known for its relieving effect on physical discomfort while travelling; both at sea and in the air, but also in the car. It relaxes the abdominal area during stressful times.
Zingiber Officinale Extract helps to lower the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides; it stimulates the blood circulation and is beneficial for blood viscosity. Ginger supports the immune system in various ways; one of those ways is by stimulating the production of the health-promoting prostaglandins (ginger inhibits the enzymes 5-lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase). It supports recovery after illness.
