    Ginger

    Ginger root (Zingiber officinale) is a widely known herbaceous plant with irregular shaped roots (rhizomes). It is used as a flavoring agent or spice in food. For centuries, ginger was cultivated in China and India (Ayurveda). It was also largely produced in Nigeria, where it was used as a traditional medicine for a range of conditions including to support digestive imbalances, pain, heartburn, nausea, indigestion and vomiting. The main ginger constituents are starch, lipids, proteins and inorganic compounds. Ginger consists in compounds gingerol, shogaols, paradols and zingerone, as well as terpenes, vitamins and minerals.

    Vitamin B6

    Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin that exists in different forms: pyridoxine, pyridoxal, and pyridoxamine. Since the body is not able to synthesize it, vitamin B6 is drawn from the diet. Vitamin B6 is mainly found in fish, meat (chicken, pork) and liver. It is also found in products of plant origin, such as whole grains, wheat germ, bananas (and other fruits), green leafy vegetables and dried beans.

    Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) contributes to the proper functioning of digestion (metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates), the nervous system and immunity. It is also involved in red blood cell formation and skin health.

    HOW DOES GINGER ROOT EXTRACT CONTRIBUTE TO REDUCING SICKNESS SYMPTOMS?

    Interestingly, ginger has been studied extensively as a natural alternative to treat nausea and vomiting during early pregnancy1, in the prevention of postoperative nausea and vomiting2, and for motion sickness, proving its effectiveness and safety. Motion sickness occurs when the brain receives conflicting messages from different sensors about motion and the body's positioning in space, which may be triggered in different situations including car, train, air or ship travels. The primary signs of motion sickness are nausea, dizziness, sweating and vomiting.

    One recent clinical study evaluated motion sickness symptoms in individuals subject to it through a questionnaire. The results indicate that supplementation with ginger effectively improves all subscores related to motion sickness manifestations during different types of land-based transportation and trip duration, compared to baseline (condition of pre-travel supplementation).3

    In a research study, ginger intake prior to circular vection in individuals with history of motion sickness showed reduced nausea, rate of electric activity in the stomach (tachygastria) and vasopressin release, compared to individuals taking placebo (a substance designed to have no therapeutic effect).4

    The presence of gingerols and shogaols in ginger extracts seem to accelerate gastric emptying and stimulate antral contractions, by their activity on cholinergic M receptors and serotonergic 5-HT and 5-HT receptors. The efficacy of ginger root on the prevention and treatment of nausea, vomiting and gastric motility of various origins has been demonstrated in human studies.5

    HOW DOES VITAMIN B6 CONTRIBUTE TO REDUCING SICKNESS SYMPTOMS?

    Although a systematic review of human trials have reported that vitamin B6, a common first-line treatment for nausea, improves mild to moderate nausea, it does not significantly reduce vomiting. The therapeutic effect of vitamin B6 remains unknown. Despite these results, a few comparative studies assessing the efficacy of ginger versus vitamin B6 supplementation reported no significant difference in terms of efficacy between the two groups of participants. Ginger and vitamin B6 seem to have equivalent beneficial effects in some studies, while other results favor one supplementation or the other.6

What is Ginger?

The etymological origin of ginger comes from the Sanskrit word srngavera ("horn-shaped" or "antler-shaped").

Health benefits of Ginger

Ginger was probably used in Indochinese cuisine as soon as it was discovered by the indigenous populations in the middle of the third millennium BC. 

Used for its revitalizing properties for centuries, both the Chinese and the Indians still use ginger widely to spice up their dishes. The Indians use it in the composition of several spice mixtures, the best known of which is Masala. In China, ginger is traditionally used in cooking to accompany dishes with a lot of taste and flavour such as seafood, certain fish or mutton. 

In the Egyptian civilization, ginger was used in culinary arts, but also in the process of mummification of the dead. Ginger has always played an important role in all the civilizations into which it was imported. 

Ginger was particularly used in Europe during much of the Middle Ages as a drink known as Hippocras from the 13th century. This wine-based beverage was supplemented with sugar and ginger. 

From the 19th century onwards, ginger was more regularly used as a tea or added to fruit juice.

What is Ginger root good for?

The first written record of the use of ginger in traditional medicine is an Indian document written in Sanskrit. Dating from around 1000 BC, it recommends the use of ginger for the treatment of many ailments ranging from asthma to digestive problems. 

Ginger was also considered a powerful aphrodisiac as early as the Middle Ages, a reputation it has retained to this day. Ancient Chinese texts from the Middle Ages refer to the use of ginger by Chinese sailors who chewed the roots to combat "motion sickness." This is the main therapeutic effect that is scientifically recognized today.

Several studies conducted on humans show that it has anti-vomiting properties and limits the symptoms of nausea. It is particularly used by women to reduce undesirable symptoms during pregnancy.

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a tropical perennial plant of about 3.3 ft (1 meter) in height, native to India, whose rhizome is used. The etymological origin of ginger comes from the Sanskrit word srngavera ("horn-shaped" or "antler-shaped"). 

Although the precise date of appearance of ginger is not known, it is estimated today to be around 2000 BC. Ginger was used for a long time by the Indo-Chinese civilizations in their cuisine as well as in traditional medicine.

It was first reported in the Mediterranean basin in the 4th century BC., thanks to the Phoenician trade. In the Middle Ages, it was imported into Europe by the Arabs returning from Zanzibar, a place of exchange with Indian merchants. 

Ginger has played an important role in the culture of many civilizations, whether in Asia, North Africa or Europe. Mainly cultivated in India, China and Indonesia, it is now used all over the world.

First Supplement Ever to Provide Relief!

I have had motion sickness for as long as I can remember. I've always taken over the counter medicine from other brands but they never seemed to help much. This product works! It's the first supplement I've tried 25 years that actually provided relief from my motion sickness! Will definitely buy again!
