Ginger Root S.E 5percent
Botanic Name: Zingiber Officinale
A perennial herb native to China and India, ginger root has been used for centuries in Asian cooking and medications. Ancient peoples used ginger root to cure everything from menstrual cramps to seasickness to food poisoning to body odor. The roots of the plant, called rhizomes, are where the benefits of ginger root lie. Actually, ginger root is not really a root at all, but a rhizome or underground stem. It's harvested nearly year-round. Ginger's earlier harvests - about five months after planting - are used to process products like ginger syrup and candied ginger. Later harvests are sold as fresh ginger. The longer the ginger remains underground before harvest, the hotter and spicier it gets - and the better it is for use in homeopathic remedies.
