Ginger, the Potential Anti-Aging Remedy with No Side Effects, According to Scientists

By Kyle J. Norton

On seeking natural therapy with no side effects, scientists may have a vegetable with anti-aging potential, according to studies.

Aging is a natural process of becoming older. Antiaging is a term that relates to delay aging. In other words, anti-aging is an action that makes your appearance looked younger than your biological age.

The cause of aging has many theories, including the theory of the accumulation of damage due to oxidative stress in the initiation of DNA oxidation and the programmed aging concept due to DNA methylation.

However, regardless of the theories, the decrease in hormone production gradually found in the human body may be one of the major cause of aging progression.

In fact, reduced production of hormone affects the amount of hormone released into the bloodstream, leading to decreased functioning of the target organs and systems.

Some researchers suggested that improved nutrients intake may have a strong effect in delaying the progression of aging and reducing the risk of age-related diseases.

Dr. Simpson SJ, the lead scientist in the joint study led by the University of Sydney wrote, "Nearly a century of research has shown that nutritional interventions can delay aging and age-related diseases in many animal models and possibly humans".

And, "Nutritional geometry provides new perspectives on the relationship between nutrition and aging by focusing on calories, macronutrients and their interactions across a landscape of diets, and taking into account compensatory feeding in ad libitum-fed experiments".

The results strongly suggested that if you follow a healthy diet with nutrients diet by focusing on calories, macronutrients, you may delay the process of biological aging.

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) or ginger root, the second superfood used for thousands of years by mankind, is the genus Zingiber, belonging to the family Zingiberaceae, native to Tamil.

The root has been used in traditional and Chinese medicine to treat dyspepsia, gastroparesis, constipation, edema, difficult urination, colic, etc.

Researchers on finding a natural ingredient which processes anti-aging property examined the ameliorative effects of two antioxidant supplements, ginger and alpha lipoic acid (ALA), on hepatic ultrastructural alterations in old rats by evaluating the livers of young (4 months) and old (24 months) Wistar rats.

Before administration of ginger and ALA, livers of old rats showed sinusoidal collapse and congestion, endothelial thickening and defenestration, and inconsistent perisinusoidal extracellular matrix deposition and aged hepatocytes associated with the reduced liver functioning.

Injection of ginger and ALA supplementation completely normalized all the alternation due to aging in the tested old rats.

The findings strongly suggested the use of ginger and ALA as an anti-aging product for the improvement of based on their amelioration of ultrastructural alterations in livers of old rats.

Additonally, in order to get more information about ginger antiaging effects, researchers examined the anti-aging natural products, the active constituent 6-shogaol isolated from the ginger.

Application of the tested compound showed to the lifespan-extending effect in a dose-dependent manner in Caenorhabditis elegans.

The anti-aging activity effects were attributed to 6 gingerols in increasing oxidative stress tolerances via antioxidant enzymes induction.

In the depth differentiation, researchers surprisingly found that 6-shogaol inhibits the aging process independent from other aging-related factors of C. elegans.

Taken altogether, ginger processed high levels 6 gingerols may be considered a functional anti-aging  remedy, pending to the confirmation of larger sample sized and multicenter human study
