Ingwer – eine Heilpflanze mit umfangreichem Einsatzgebiet

Ginger is a tropical herb native to Southeast Asia. But for many years, the small tuber has not only been able to assert itself in the Asian part of the world. In addition to the refining aroma that adorns gingerbread, mulled wine, tea and curry mixtures, ginger is mainly used because of its numerous positive effects on the human body.

Looking at the ginger plant with its yellow flowers and long green leaves, one quickly wonders which part of the plant is actually used. This question is quickly answered: The active ingredients are in the lower part of the plant - in the rootstock. This is infused with up to three percent essential oils, which are extracted to be used for stunning flavors or healing effects on the body.

These ensure increased blood flow to the nasal and pharyngeal mucous walls, resulting in a refreshing effect. Depending on the spiciness of the ginger, a burning sensation in the throat and a runny nose can occur.

In addition, the stomach produces a higher proportion of gastric acid to digest the tuber. This stimulates the digestion very strongly and thus contributes to an increased metabolism.
