New Ginger Study Makes Incredible Discovery

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • Over the centuries, traditional use of ginger has proven to be useful for a number of ailments, from nausea and hypertension to arthritis and diabetes
  • Clinical studies on rats rather than humans meant the viability of ginger as a treatment or prevention strategy for curbing hunger, for example, was more anecdotal evidence than solid science
  • A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study on ginger had never been conducted on humans until a 2012 study of 44 patients with nonalcoholic liver disease who consumed 1 teaspoon a day, with dramatic results
  • Previous studies have shown ginger to be not just a desirable flavor agent for food but a protective agent against radiation damage and an effective, inexpensive way to fight disease

After getting "substantial attention" from researchers around the world, a clinical review confirms that ginger (Zingiber officinale) serves as a viable antidote and protective agent against fatal poisoning from such agents as pesticides, environmental pollutants, heavy metals, bacterial and fungal toxins and even some cosmetic products and medications.

Published in Food and Chemical Toxicology, the study acknowledges the protective effects of ginger and its phytochemicals against natural, chemical and radiation-induced toxicities. It also holds an "arsenal of metabolites" with numerous health benefits, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptotic (programmed cell death-inducing) properties.
