Oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) seems to have a role in atherosclerotic plaque formation. Ginger has been shown to have antioxidants and cardioprotective properties (see also Ginger &...
Studies indicate that the phenolic bioactives of ginger-6-gingerols, 8-gingerols, 10-gingerols, and 6-shogaol-seem to be strong inhibitors of induced LDL oxidation. Ginger extracts inhibit human LDL oxidation in vitro.
Can Ginger have a protective effect in the formation of “fatty” plaques in arteries?
“Atherosclerosis, a chronic inflammatory disease of the arterial wall, is the major cause of morbidity and mortality from CVD (Cardiovascular Disease) in much of the world’s population. The disease involves the formation of Plaques in arterial walls that narrow the arterial passage, restricting blood flow and increasing the risk of occlusion of blood flow by a myocardial infarction. There is now a consensus that Atherosclerosis represents a state of heightened oxidative stress characterized by lipid and protein oxidation in the vascular wall. The Oxidative Modification hypothesis predicts LDL (Low-Density Lipoproteins) oxidation as an early event in Atherosclerosis, and oxidized LDL as one of the important contributors of Atherogenesis” see LDL Oxidation in Atherogenesis.

In a 6-month controlled study of knee osteoarthritis, Ayurvedic formulations containing, amongst other herbs, Zingiber officinale (Ginger) & Emblica officinalis (Amla), significantly reduced knee pain and improved knee function and were equivalent to glucosamine and celecoxib.
A study by Akinyemi et al investigated the inhibitory effect of aqueous extracts of varieties of ginger on a key enzyme linked to hypertension (angiotensin I-converting enzyme [ACE]), and various o...
Results revealed that Ginger extracts inhibited ACE in a dose-dependent manner. These results suggests that the possible mechanism through which ginger exerts its antihypertensive properties may be through inhibition of ACE activity and prevention of lipid peroxidation in the heart.
The results suggest that the above cardiovascular protective properties of ginger could be attributed to their polyphenol contents.

Neem was shown to mediate apoptosis in 41 patients with Chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
In conclusion, Neem extract exhibits anti-leukemic properties in patient primary leukemic cells and demonstrates clinical efficacy, warranting further investigation as a potential therapy for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia.
Atherosclerosis -- hardening and narrowing of the arteries -- is a progressive process that silently and slowly blocks arteries, putting blood flow at risk. Gingerol, a component of Ginger, is und...
Gingerol, a component of Ginger, is under investigation for a variety of therapeutic uses. The initiating step in atherosclerosis is proteoglycan synthesis leading to increased binding of low-density lipoproteins. TGF-β facilitates this process. Kamata et al evaluated the effects of (S)--gingerol on these TGF-β-mediated proteoglycan changes to explore its potential as an anti-atherosclerotic agent.
Licorice has been used in herbal medicine for hundreds of years. Licorice is a common ingredient in several traditional medicines like Ayurveda & Chinese medicine and has been proved to inhibit...
Results from a study indicate that licorice could be effective against HRSV infection on airway epithelial cells. Radix Glycyrrhizae inhibited HRSV mainly by preventing viral attachment, internalization, and by stimulating IFN secretion. 18β-GA may be one of its active constituents.
Liquorice (Licorice) is a key ingredient in The Wise Herb Company‘s recipes.
Licorice (Liquorice) in the scientific news again! Tumor specificity of various flavanoids of liquorice were studies by Ohno et al. Ten licorice flavonoids were subjected to quantitative structure-...
Results suggest that the flavanoids Licurazid and Isoliquiritigenin had the highest cytotoxicity against tumor cells. Chalcones had slightly higher cytotoxicity and tumor specificity than flavanones. The number of sugar units in the molecule was somewhat negatively-correlated with cytotoxicity, but not with tumor specificity.
In conclusion, the results suggest that these physicochemical descriptors may be useful to estimate cytotoxicity or tumor specificity of structurally-related compounds to these liquorice / licorice flavonoids.
Licorice (liquorice) is a key ingredient of the green tea herbal infusions handcrafted by The Wise Herb Company.

Studies suggest that Green Tea is associated with a lower risk of obesity and related diseases. The mechanisms of these effects was investigated by Yan et al for its anti-obesity mechanisms via catechins. The mechanism occurs via the modulation of peroxisome proliferator activated-receptor (PPAR) pathways in high-fat diet-induced obesity in animal model systems.

Isoliquiritigenin is a component of Liquorice. Liquorice is a key herb in The Wise Herb Company's range of Green Tea Herbal Infusions. Isoliquiritigenin was shown to induce growth inhibition and ap...
Isoliquiritigenin was shown to induce growth inhibition and apoptosis in human breast cancer (animal model system).
The results from a study by Li et al suggest that isoliquiritigenin induces growth inhibition and apoptosis through downregulating Arachidonic acid (AA)-derived eicosanoids and the deactivation of various biomarkers in human breast cancer.
Liquorice (licorice) has been used in traditional medicines like Ayurveda for treatment of many diseases, including inflammations and immunological disorders. Studies by Fu et al suggest that the...
Studies by Fu et al suggest that the anti-inflammatory and immunomodulation activities of liquorice are due to its active component, glycyrretinic acid (GA). They suggest a potential mechnism for these positive health effects.
Their results suggest that GA blocks Kv1.3 channels, which probably helps to explain its anti-inflammatory and immunomodulation effects.
The handcrafted recipe of up & go contains liquorice which helps with energising your day and helping with strengthening immunity.
Ginger has anti-hyperactivity and anti-inflammation on airways. Ginger has always had a special value for helping people to clear their airways or stave off the symptoms of colds etc. A study Mangp...
"A bronchodilator is a substance that dilates the bronchi and bronchioles, decreasing resistance in the respiratory airway and increasing airflow to the lungs. Bronchodilators may be endogenous (originating naturally within the body), or they may be medicinal administered for the treatment of breathing difficulties. They are most useful in obstructive lung diseases, of which asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are the most common conditions."
Citral, eucalyptol and camphene were found to be the major components of Ginger oil.
The animal study provides the pharmacological basis supporting the therapeutic potential of Z. officinale (Ginger) as a bronchodilator.
Check out The Wise Herb Company’s UP&GO for potential help in this area….also contains Liquorice!
