Valued in Asia for thousands of years and also in medieval Europe for its properties as a tasteful spice, Ginger in capsule form is very effective for the control of dizziness, motion sickness, nausea, and vertigo.
The ginger plant has a long history of cultivation, having originated in Asia and is grown in India, Southeast Asia, West Africa, and the Caribbean. Ginger is a spice that is used for cooking and is also consumed whole as a delicacy or medicine. It is the underground stem of the ginger plant, Zingiber officinale.
The characteristic odor and flavor of ginger root is caused by a mixture of zingerone, shogaols and gingerols, volatile oils that compose about one to three percent of the weight of fresh ginger.
Ginger contains up to three percent of a fragrant essential oil whose main constituents are sesquiterpenoids, with (-)-zingiberene as the main component. Smaller amounts of other sesquiterpenoids (β-sesquiphellandrene, bisabolene, and farnesene) and a small monoterpenoid fraction (β-phellandrene, cineol, and citral) have also been identified.
The pungent taste of ginger is due to non-volatile phenylpropanoid-derived compounds, particularly gingerols and shogaols, which form from gingerols when ginger is dried or cooked. Zingerone is also produced from gingerols during this process; this compound is less pungent and has a spicy-sweet aroma. Ginger has a sialagogue action, stimulating the production of saliva, which makes swallowing easier.
