Research has uncovered a few possible mechanisms for gingers action on the gut. Ginger is known to stimulate bile production in the liver and subsequent release from the gall bladder. Bile is an essential component of the digestive system that emulsifies fat and promotes the absorption of dietary fats. Ginger has also been investigated as a possible nausea treatment (anti emetic).
Research has also been favourable for ginger impacting morning sickness and seasickness at a dose of around 1-2 grams or 2-4 capsules of this product. Both bile and anti-nausea effects are thought to be related to gingerol and shogaol activity on the digestive system.
