Ginger is a root originally from eastern countries. It is a historical medicine and can be used for headaches, migraines, blood pressure, and flow, immune system and common sore throats.

Digestive Health

Digestion is one of the most important processes in the body, as its function is to keep the body's supply of water, electrolytes and nutrients in a continuous flow. It is essential to have a healthy digestive system as it serves all other body systems and also, to have a good bioavailability of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. The compounds that aid digestion act on the health of the gastrointestinal tract, including mouth, throat, stomach, intestine, digestive and absorptive capacity and the microbiome.

Immunity

The immune system is made up of cells, tissues and organs that act in the organism's defense against the harmful effects of external microorganisms. The supplements indicated for immunity act as strengthening agents of this system, increasing the antibodies production and, consequently, its defense activity.
  • Anti-Inflammatory

    The inflammatory process is a response by the body to an infection or tissue damage that occurs to eliminate microorganisms or irritants and to enhance tissue repair. Although this process is necessary, it can also cause cell damage. Anti-inflammatory compounds prevent inflammation from impairing the healthy functioning of the body.
  • Age Range Children (0-12), Teenagers (13-19), Adults (20-59), Seniors (>60)
  • Toxicity May be toxic in high doses

Why be Careful

Ginger's active bio compounds may interact with some commonly used medications, such as anticoagulants, significantly altering their effects. It is recommended to consult a doctor before consuming it.
