Ginger is revered in Ayurvedic medicine, where it is known as ‘mahaoushadha’ (the Great medicine) and as ‘vishwabheshaj’ or ‘vishwaaushadha’ (the Universal medicine). Since antiquity, ginger or Zingiber officinale, has been used by humans all over the world for medicinal purposes as well as spice condiments to enhance flavor in cooking. While ginger is rich in various chemical constituents, including phenolic compounds, terpenes, polysaccharides, lipids, organic acids, and raw fibers the health benefits of ginger are mainly attributed to its phenolic compounds, such as gingerol and shogaol and paradol.
