Chemistry and Pharmacology :
The rhizome and roots contain a high percentage of a characteristic sesquiterpenoid, which is a key phytochemical active. Extracts of the rhizome have been demonstrated to be anti-inflammatory (prostaglandin-synthetase inhibition), bronchodilatory, smooth muscle relaxant, mildly sedative, and anti-candidal. The presence of antiseptic monoterpenoids contributes to the bioactivity.

Contraindications:
The German therapeutic monograph on ginger warns patients with gall bladder disease to avoid it and also cautions against exceeding the recommended dosage. Because of its heating properties ginger is not recommended for those who do not tolerate heat well or those with gastritis or peptic ulcers. Do not use during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. Keep out of reach of children.

Side effects:
Side effects of ginger are rare when used as recommended.
