Product Information: African Ginger
In an effort to keep the Biogenesis Laboratories web site more
focused on Anti-Aging, we have started to move some of our products
off this site and onto new sites.
You can now buy the same African Ginger that was previously sold
here, from our other site: AfricanBotanicals.Com
We do administer AfricanBotanicals.Com,
so you can be sure of the same excellent customer care that you
have become accustomed to.
Please forgive us for the inconvenience.

Chemistry and Pharmacology
The conical rhizome and roots contain a high percentage of a characteristic
sesquiterpenoid, which is a key phytochemical active. Extracts of the
rhizome have been demonstrated to be anti-inflammatory (prostaglandin-synthetase
inhibition), bronchodilatory, smooth muscle relaxant, mildly sedative,
and anti-candidal. The presence of antiseptic monoterpenoids contributes
to the bioactivity.
