Ginger (Zingiber officinale) has been used in Asian cuisine for thousands of years. When used as a food, ginger root provides antioxidant protection.

Most ginger is heat processed either in cooking or processing. However, Jarrow Formulas® Ginger is naturally-dried and not subjected to any additional heat. This process ensures the presence of the active compounds that are beneficial to the gastrointestinal tract.

Ginger may enhance calorie burn, while reducing feelings of hunger. Further, it’s also been implicated in weight loss in overweight adults, along with “positive changes in cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, inflammatory proteins and liver health.”

Whole ginger extract has been found to have antiproliferative capabilities, especially in prostate cancer, which means it inhibits cancer growth and helps induce death of cancerous cells in many different prostate cancer cells, driving “mitochondrially mediated apoptosis,” or programmed cell death, and decreasing the size of tumors, without disturbing normal tissues.*1 The University of Maryland Medical Center *2 noted that ginger has successfully helped treat pain and discomfort in several other conditions, along with others, including:
  • Anti-inflammatory/antioxidant (free-radical fighter)
  • Aids in weight loss/enhanced fat burning
  • Reduces atherosclerosis/Possible benefits for heart disease
  • Blood clot prevention
