Effects of Ginger on Breathing & Airway Smooth Muscle Relaxation
Inflammation and asthma have been studied by Townsend et al in relation to natural therapies like Ginger. Nearly 40% of asthmatics are said to use herbal therapies to manage asthma symptoms and so it is important to investigate both the therapeutic and possible detrimental effects of isolated components of herbal treatments on the airway.
Data sugges that Ginger, a key component used by The Wise Herb Company, and its active components like -gingerol, -gingerol, and -shogaol, relax airway smooth muscle and -gingerol attenuates airway hyperresponsiveness in part by altering [Ca2+]i regulation.
In conclusion, Ginger compounds may provide a therapeutic option alone, or in combination with accepted therapeutics in airway diseases such as asthma.
