Red ginger is favoured as a topical and oral treatment for muscle aches, pains and swelling, it was also brewed and drank to fight infection and relieve menstrual pain.
Studies show that ginger extract can inhibit the growth of many different types of bacteria. Also, the bioactive substance in fresh ginger called gingerol can help lower the risk of infections. Fresh ginger may also be effective against the RSV virus, a common cause of respiratory infections. Additionally, ginger has the potential for treating a number of ailments including degenerative disorders (arthritis and rheumatism), digestive health (indigestion, constipation and ulcer), cardiovascular disorders (atherosclerosis and hypertension), vomiting, diabetes mellitus, and cancer. It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties for controlling the process of aging. Furthermore, it has antimicrobial potential as well which can help in treating infectious diseases:
Recent clinical studies have validated red ginger’s reputation as a potent traditional medicine. One specific trial showed 1–2 grams of ginger taken for 5–7 days was more effective and safer than anti-inflammatory drugs. Key compounds found in dried ginger root – gingerol, shagaol, gingerdione & gingerdiol – work harmoniously together. This action is responsible for its all-rounded ability to reduce or assist with pain, diabetes, nausea, obesity, fatty liver disease, menstrual cramps, arthritis, osteoarthritis, IBS & migraines.

Meet the Supplier
The idea for a company started one hot, smoky day in Medan, Sumatra during the 2015 slash-and-burn season, when Jim met De. They bonded over a healthy Jamu brew, in a traditional Indonesian warung, sharing experiences of their travels and a passion for nature, health and history. Their mutual gratitude of traditional medicines, and disappointment that these natural remedies were largely underappreciated in Western culture, led them to develop Empathy Herbal.
