Exciting research published in the journal Nutrition and Cancer found that a whole food extract of ginger containing a group of phytonutrients known as gingerols slowed cancer tumor growth and increased the rate at which the body destroyed cancer cells in prostate cancer. The scientists conducted both laboratory testing and tests on humans to determine the effects of a ginger extract on prostate cancer and the results were promising. They compared the results to a combination of only the known effective ingredients found in ginger, but the whole ginger extract fared much better against the cancer.
Additional research published in the journal Carcinogenesis confirmed these results and found that the whole food extract of ginger containing the phytonutrients known as gingerols was 240% more effective than a mixture of the active ingredients alone against prostate cancer in human trials. This shows the effectiveness of the various phytonutrients in ginger when found in combination as they are in nature, as opposed to a select group of nutrients extracted in isolation from the whole gingerroot.
