Origins of Ginger
Ginger is botanically known as Zingiber officinale, a spice that was considered a luxury 5,000 years ago and is now one of the most common spices utilised in the modern-day. Ginger is a rhizome, believed to have originated in the tropical jungles of Southern Asia. The Ginger we know is the root of the plant, sitting below reed-like fronds that grow to about 1m tall. Ginger is part of the same family as Turmeric - the Curcuma family.
Although Ginger originated in Southeast Asia, the root has always been widely cultivated in other areas. Ginger is one of the oldest spices known to man and by the 1st century, Ginger was being cultivated in the Mediterranean regions. The spice gradually became popular in Rome and when the Roman Empire fell, the use of Ginger decreased. At that point, the price of Ginger increased and the root became a novelty ingredient.
Benefits of Ginger
Ginger has been historically valued for its use as a warming spice, digestive aid and ability to treat colic. Today, Ginger is well known for its antiseptic, anti-allergenic and anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger is often used to treat tired muscles and prevent fatigue by contributing to the body's natural defences and the immune system. The root also plays an important role in vascular health, leading to improved health of the cardiovascular system and digestive tract. Ginger is also commonly used to settle the stomach during feelings of discomfort, such as vomiting and dizziness during feelings of motion. Additionally, certain properties of Ginger allow the balance of anti-inflammatory and inflammatory hormones (prostaglandins).
