    Default Boosting Mitochondrial Biogenesis With Ginger

    GreenMedInfo Research Group
    January 18th 2020

    Researchers discover that ginger, an ancient herbal remedy used for cooking and medicinal purposes, supports the regeneration of cellular mitochondria and may reduce the effects of mitochondrial dysfunction

    A study published in the Journal of Food Science found that ginger extract and gingerol, an active compound found in ginger root, both play a similar role in stimulating the AMPK-PCG1PCG1? pathway, which regulates the process of mitochondrial biogenesis.[i]
    While further research is warranted, researchers theorize that ginger, considered a potent ancient herbal remedy, could mitigate the effects of aging on mitochondria and significantly reduce or prevent the onset of mitochondrial dysfunction diseases such as diabetes, obesity, cancer and cardiovascular disorders.

    I've been using ginger root in stirfries for at least 20 years, but kept it in the freezer because I wasn't using it fast enough to prevent spoilage. It was roughly 15 years ago that my Filipina daughter-in-law ramped up my usage of ginger, to the point where I no longer freeze the root because I'm using it so frequently. Seems like I am slicing it or grating it into something at least once a day, from teas to soups and stirfrys... Because I really really like ginger!

    Fascinating info. on ginger. This is the first time I've seen diabetes and cardiovascular disorders classified as mitochondrial dysfunction diseases. The nutrient Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) has been shown to boosts the health and function of the mitochondria. I'm going to begin using ginger when I take my CoQ10 supplement to improve my cardio health, as heart problems run in my family. In fact, the very first vitamin I ever consumed was vitamin E because I didn't want to end up with heart problems like so many others in my family.

    Ginger root does seem to freeze well, as does turmeric root. At the time when our local growing season for those two is about to end, I usually stock up on quite a bit of both, and freeze them to be used until the next growing season begins. Works well for me.

    I freeze ginger too. I mostly use it in cooking, and occasionally ginger tea. I blend it up and keep in ice cube trays - just the right amount for what I need.

    Maurya, have you ever tried growing your own? You have a better climate for it than I do, it it gets too cold in winter here. No frost or snow, but tropical plants struggle. The ones that do well are mango and avocado, which are grown commercially round here.

    Julieanne, I know the farmer who grows the ginger that I buy and use. He and his family grow most of the vegetables which I eat when in season, and I have a yard which consists of rocks and more rocks, so I think I will take a pass on growing my own ginger.
