Galangal ginger (often called Thai Ginger) is similar to regular ginger but has a special extra zing to it, a sharper, citrusy flavor.

Galangal is super-rich in Vitamin C and Vitamin A, for enhanced digestion, optimal eyesight and bolstered immunity.
It also supplies adequate essential dietary fibers and proteins.
Furthermore, galangal also offers the key spectrum of B vitamins to regulate metabolism and cellular energy requirements.
AND it has potassium, phosphorus, copper, iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc!

Galangal has also been used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for centuries and is gaining recognition in traditional medicine as well.

Boosts Immune System - Consuming some galangal in your diet will satisfy the daily vitamin C requirement in healthy adults.

High in antioxidants - Galangal is particularly rich in a group of antioxidants called polyphenols, that studies have linked to helping with cognition by improving memory, and lowering LDL cholesterol, which can help to combat heart disease, and also helping to lower blood sugar naturally which works to combat the onset of diabetes.

Galangal also possesses the ability to remove excess estrogen – a female reproductive hormone involved in breast development and thus prevents breast cancer. The inherent dietary fibers infused in galangal can help ward off colon cancer and enhance gut health.

Anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties - Galangal also has been shown to have both anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties, meaning it helps to lower inflammation that leads to joint pain in the body while also protecting the body against harmful microorganisms and bacteria, preventing illnesses and parasites.

Maintains heart health - Being intrinsically high in potassium levels, galangal assists in the maintenance of normal blood pressure.

Relaxes muscle cramps - Galangal is a good source of the key mineral for optimal muscle function – magnesium. The significantly high magnesium content in galangal roots makes it an ideal option to provide relief from muscle cramps.

Prevents cold and flu - Using fresh galangal in your diet enriches the blood circulation with potent antioxidants, which perform the vital task of preventing toxin build-up in the system. Galangal supplies ample vitamin C to boost the body’s innate defense mechanism and circumvents the occurrence of cold and flu.

Urinary tract infections - Galangal offers profuse amounts of vitamin C that confers anti-inflammatory properties to reduce swelling in the bladder, UTI which is more common in women than men. Also, its antioxidant capabilities are useful in removing detrimental free radicals and harmful bacteria from the body.

Joint pain - Being an effective anti-inflammatory, galangal tea actually reduces bone and muscle pain and heals joint disorders such as arthritis, osteoporosis, gout and fractures. In addition, it is packed with the three essential bone-fortifying minerals namely calcium, magnesium and phosphorous, which in turn increases bone mass and helps regain flexible movement in muscles and joints.

May boost male fertility - some studies have found that the extract of the galangal herb can help treat impotence in men, by increasing the numbers and activity of sperm, and raising the level of testosterone as well.

Anti-diabetic - Aerial parts of galangal could stimulate the regeneration of insulin-secreting beta-cells in the pancreas. Administering galangal extracts to diabetic rats lowered cholesterol and triglyceride levels, improving lipid metabolism and preventing diabetic complications.
