Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a plant native to Southeast Asia that has a long history of use as an herbal remedy and as a culinary spice. Ginger has more recently been shown to support digestive health. In addition, ginger is a powerful antioxidant, featuring a number of free radical-scavenging compounds.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by My body does not like ginger I wanted to take this supplement for a variety of reasons, but especially digestion. With one a day at lunchtime, this does not suit me. It does the opposite of what it is supposed to. Heartburn, upset, aftertaste. I love the NOW quality, so I am not disparaging them. I will go to NOW brand for other things. Ginger does not agree with me. December 25, 2015
