    Ginger is a medicinal plant that is widely used in traditional systems of medicine. The two most active constituents of ginger- based preparations are gingerol and shogaol. It has antiemetic, antipyretic, analgesic, antiarthritic, and anti-inflammatory activities. Ginger (Zingiber officinale Roscoe) has strong antioxidant effects helping in the production of free radicals. Studies have proved the antitumor and hepatoprotective effects of ginger. This review discusses the pharmacological properties and clinical uses of ginger.
