Greater Galangal

Galangal, also called Alpinia galangal, has been used for thousands of years in traditional eastern medicine. Galangal looks a lot like ginger and shares some of its healing properties. It warms the body, helps digestion, and works as an effective anti-nausea remedy. Galangal is used as a fragrant spice in East Asian cooking. Hundreds of years after the Chinese, Europeans discovered that galangal could help cure seasickness. The famed German theologian St. Hildegard, an expert in herbal medicine dubbed it the, “Spice of life” using it as a remedy for many of the diseases that ravaged Europe at the time.

Galangal is used extensively in traditional Chinese medicine to aid digestion and help with abdominal discomfort. It fights nausea, prevents or stops vomiting, and effectively treats diarrhea. Indian Medicine recognized Galangal for its anti-inflammatory properties and used it to treat rheumatoid arthritis. It also helps break up mucus and create more productive coughs in patients. More recently, Western researchers have discovered that galangal can help kill cancer cells and prevent cells from becoming malignant.
