Let’s know more about the healthiest food – Ginger

Ginger is officially known as ‘Zingiber officinale’. It is a flowering plant with the edible parts – rhizome and root/ginger root. It is an underground rhizome. The peculiar fragrance and flavour of ginger come from the volatile oils – zingerone, shogaols, and gingerols. Gingerol is the main compound that is responsible for the pungency.

Raw Ginger (Adrak) or dried ginger (Saunth) has been extensively used for culinary (condiment) as well as home (herb) remedial purposes since ages. It was traditionally used as a home remedy for various ailments because of ginger’s therapeutic properties such as carminative, anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea, anti-carcinogenic, and cardio-vascular & other disease preventive effects.

Ginger has plenty of nutrients and bioactive compounds that have potential therapeutic effects on our body. Several scientific studies are carried out to study the active compounds and their medicinal properties.

Ginger is named as a ‘Superfood’. Do you want to know why? Below are the reasons that make the powerful herb earn the name ‘superfood’.

Amrutam face clean up works great on any skin type, it has helped me keep my skin inflammation in check, helps with acne and clear the open pores. Continuous usage has helped lighten the pigmentation and scars as well. I have recommended the face clean up to many people and they have all loved it!!

This really changed the game of how to maintain skin soft supple and glowing! I’m using it since few weeks and see hell lot of difference in the skin I had before and now. I don’t need any makeup or foundation to cover my skin imperfections since now they are slowly fading away after I started using this! I would say this product doesn’t need any kind of review because it’s above par than expected. It’s a blind buy honestly . I’m looking forward to buy more products and repeat this regularly henceforth.
