Traditional homeopathy has long utilized ginger to treat constipation, diarrhea, and other ailments of the digestive tract. In 2017, researchers at the University of Bologna found that a concentration of ginger root demonstrated significant beneficial effects on intestinal smooth muscle. They believe that these effects are due to the phytomarkers 6-gingerol, 8-gingerol, and 6-shogaol.
