Ginger has powerful anti-asthma activity

Several components of ginger have been shown to have anti-allergic effects. However, little is known about how well different ginger extracts work in treating asthma.

A team of Korean and Chinese scientists therefore used a mouse model of asthma to study the anti-asthmatic effects of ginger extracts. The study also assessed lung tissue levels of several anti-oxidative enzymes along with inflammatiry responses. It was discovered that the gingerextracts efficiently controlled the allergic response and had anti-oxidative effects in the mouse model. Collectively, it was proposed that ginger extracts can prevent lung inflammation by haviing anti-oxidant effects and by reducing allergic response signals. It was concluded that ginger may have a therapeutic role in the treatment of allergic and eosinophilic asthma.
