Origin Peru | supplier of gingerols
Ginger has been used for centuries, especially in the Asian region, to treat various ailments. In traditional Chinese medicine, the tuber is considered a warming agent to help promote circulation and clear mucus from the respiratory tract. In Ayurvedic medicine, the plant is considered a universal remedy and is used in the treatment of colds. However, it is not only in the Asian region that the plant’s effectiveness is appreciated; ginger is also regarded as a natural remedy in other regions of the world.
What active ingredients does the tuber contain?
Ginger tubers are rich in various active ingredients, including essential oils, gingerols, shogaols, and zingiberen. These compounds are responsible for the characteristic taste and smell of ginger. The main bioactive compounds are gingerols and shogaols, which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. These two compounds are responsible for most of the health benefits of ginger.
Where does the organic ginger used in Ogaenics grow?
The plant requires a tropical or subtropical climate with moist soil and plenty of sunlight for the highest possible content of active ingredients and essential oils. That’s why we source the organic ginger for Ogaenics from organic farms in Peru. There it is grown as a perennial plant. The roots of the plant are what we use for ogaenics.
How is the ginger powder used for Ogaenics made?
For the ginger powder used by Ogaenics, we use organic ginger that is harvested by hand as soon as the foliage has withered and the plant has completed its growth phase. We wash and peel the freshly harvested tubers before drying them at low temperature. In this way, we preserve the valuable active ingredients. Then we grind the dried tubers very finely to obtain the powder. The ginger powder is 100% organic and contains the full spectrum of nutrients of the plant for full effect in our organic supplements.
