Ginger – The wonder tuber

The tropical plant is not only as a spice a universally popular ingredient that gives dishes, whether savoury or sweet, a special pungency. It is also said to have effects on health. Anyone who has ever bitten on a piece of fresh ginger can confirm that it is not only the tongue that burns. A pleasant feeling of warmth runs through the whole body. This is due to the high pungent content of the ginger tuber, which activates heat receptors in the body. This is why ginger tea is so popular during the cold season, especially for colds, to strengthen the immune system. The wonder tuber is also said to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Ginger is said to stimulate digestion and even help with travel sickness.

While orthodox medicine did not begin to research the medicinal properties of the wonder tuber until not so long ago, traditional Chinese, Indian (Ayurvedic) and Japanese medicine has been using the tropical root for a whole range of ailments for about 3,000 years.

Ginger – the miracle bulb

The tropical plant is not only a popular ingredient as a spice, which gives the food, whether hearty or sweet, a particular spiciness. It is also said to have health effects. Anyone who has ever bitten a piece of fresh ginger can confirm that it is not only the tongue that burns. A pleasant feeling of warmth runs through the whole body. This is due to the high spiciness of the ginger bulb, which activates heat receptors in the body. That is why ginger tea is so popular during the cold season, especially for colds to strengthen the immune system. The miracle bulb is also said to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Ginger is said to boost digestion and even help with travel sickness.

While conventional medicine only recently began to research the medicinal properties of the miracle bulb, traditional Chinese, Indian (Ayurvedic) and Japanese medicine have been using the tropical root for a wide range of complaints for around 3,000 years.
