GINGER (Zingiber officinale, family of Zingiberaceae)

Main constituents of ginger are volatile oil, (mainly zingiberone and bisabolene), oleoresin (containing the pungent principles gingerols, shogaols and zingerone), fats, protein, starch, vitamins a and b, minerals and amino acids.

Ginger boasts innumerable benefits to health. It is great for digestion, fighting inflammation, and arthritis. The antioxidant effects of ginger root are thought to safeguard the neurons (nerve cells) of the brain against the oxidative stress that is common in many neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease.

According to Arabian folklore, ginger has been claimed to improve memory. The studies showed that ginger rhizomes extract could enhance memory and protect against brain damage. Ginger extract enhances both attention and cognitive processing capabilities of healthy, middle-aged women, with no side effects reported.

Cinnamon and ginger are delicious in sweet treats and if we consume them regularly, not only will we be able to do our job perfectly, but we will still have our strength and energy for our favourite hobbies. Not only do they have a good effect on our memory, but they can also help us overcome our anxiety.

Use them with confidence and enjoy!
