Psychological factors have become strongly associated with functional dyspepsia – a disorder of exclusion given the absence of other structural .. Read more upper gastrointestinal (GI) conditions. This webinar will explore how a concentrated ginger extract can help to strengthen gut health claims for functional food and beverages, and address the predicted increase in stress-related GI conditions as a result of the 2020 pandemic. Volatile oils from pungent spices, like ginger, have recently been associated with olfactory-like sensory receptors found within enterochromaffin cells within the GI tract. However, stress and neurological imbalances, including depression, anxiety and acute stress reactions can also lead to changes that affect dyspepsia through impaired neuronal signaling. While the mechanisms underlying ginger’s potential role in GI health have become clearer, ginger supplementation for functional dyspepsia and other gut concerns has resulted in mixed conclusions. Given such a difficult 2020 for so much of the global population, the prospect of increased cases of GI distress is highly probable. Innovation in ginger manufacturing has recently allowed for a very high concentration of active ginger principles, without sacrificing stability or adding an excess amount of ginger inactives to the product unintentionally.
