Ginger: Kidney Protective Properties

May 13, 2012

The objective of a study by Hamed et al, was to evaluate the potential of ginger extracts against kidney induced damange in an animal model.

The evaluation was done through measuring kidney antioxidant parameters: glutathione (GSH), lipid peroxides (LPO), and superoxide dismutase (SOD).

The results suggest that extracts of ginger resulted in an attractive candidate for the treatment of nephropathy induced by toxic agents through scavenging free radicals, improved kidney functions, inhibition of inflammatory mediators, and normalizing the kidney celll architecture. Further studies are required in order to identify the molecules responsible of the pharmacological activity.
