According to a new clinical study, ginger root demonstrates a positive capacity in alleviating dyspepsia
US-based DolCas Biotech, LLC’s award-winning patented ingredient, Ginfort, has shown significant potential for reducing a broad range of functional dyspepsia-related symptoms in chronic sufferers.
According to the results of a new clinical study, the concentrated, all-natural high-gingeroids extract of ginger root (Zingiber officinale roscoe) demonstrated a positive capacity in alleviating dyspepsia.
The randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study, led by Sanjib Kumar Panda, PhD, was published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements. The research was conducted at the Maharaja Agrasen Hospital, New Delhi, India, and included 57 participants suffering from FD. They were allocated either 200mg of Ginfort, twice daily, or to the equivalent dose in a dibasic calcium-inactive placebo. Overall treatment efficacy was rated on a seven-point
Likert scale where subjects were asked to complete a weekly questionnaire over the course of the 4-week trial. Nine functional dyspepsia-related symptoms were assessed including upper abdominal pain, upper abdominal discomfort, postprandial fullness, upper abdominal bloating, early satiety, excessive belching, nausea, vomiting, and heartburn.
At 2 weeks into the trial, 41 per cent of subjects in the Ginfort group reported a statistically significant positive response which was maintained throughout the trial period. Ginfort supplementation was found to be effective in 79 per cent of the subjects, whereas the placebo was only found to be 21 per cent effective. Moreover, the responder rate in the Ginfort treated group was 58 per cent higher than the placebo group at Visit 4.
The novel formulation of Ginfort, produced by Olene Life Sciences, Ltd. Pvt., earned recognition from the Indian Ministry of Science and Technology as a clinically researched digestive health ingredient. It was granted the “Best Micro, Small, Medium Enterprises (MSME) 2021 Award” for its unique and superior extraction technology as compared to other conventional technologies currently available for producing powdered ginger extract.
