Alpinia officinalis
Uses: Culinary/Medicinal
A medicinal root used for centuries! A member of the ginger family, this herb is indigenous to Southeast China and Indochina and is cultivated today in West Bengal, Assam and the Eastern Himilayas in India. Root and rhizome are used in China to relieve swelling, tonify the circulatory system, and ease digestive pain. Recent research has supported its traditional use, through extracting and isolating bioactive compounds that have antioxidant, anti diabetic, anti ulcer, anti-emetic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti coagulation properties. Interestingly enough, “compound 32” found in the root has the ability to target cell death in bacteria without damaging healthy cells. This is extremely important in potential treatments against certain cells without unwanted side effects. Has potential to offer new and unique therapeutic benefits!
