Potential Effects of Ginger Supplementation on Corectal Cancer

January 14, 2013

Citronberg et al studied the effects of Ginger on apoptosis, proliferation, and differentiation in the normal-appearing colonic mucosa using a randomized approach.

 NK cells

They measured expression and distributions of various biomarkers related to cancerous cells relative to a placebo.

Their conclusion was that the results from these pilot study suggest that ginger may reduce proliferation in the normal-appearing colorectal epithelium and increase apoptosis (automatic cell death – useful in cancerous cells).


Ginger is a key ingredient used in the products made by The Wise Herb Company.
