Curcuminoid which is the main yellow substance in ginger (temulawak) has been known to have many health benefits.
Curcumin (yellow dye) is analgesic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory. Ginger (temulawak) is known to be a powerful “shield” to alleviate growth of cancer cells, lower contraction of liver and diabetes illnesses, and ease inflammation.
In addition, ginger (temulawak) is also rich in vitamins C, E, B6, potassium and iron. Ginger (temulawak) contains enzymes that can reduce levels of SGOT (Serum Glutamic Oxaloacetic Transaminase) and SGPT (Glutamic Pyruvate Transaminase Serum). The high levels of SGOT and SGPT in the liver will cause damage to the organs that function to neutralize the poison. So, by consuming ginger (temulawak), both of these enzymes will drop and improve liver function more stable.
