Younger rhizomes (above picture) similar to those sold in the markets are used by us for replanting. Older rhizomes are used by us for health supplementation purposes.

Here's a research paper on the anti-inflammatory effect of lempoyang :



The aqueous extract is as effective as reference NSAIDs.


We use the lempoyang as part of our anti-inflammation diet at a dosage of 5 to 10 grams twice a week.


Here's a Bernama report on the effects of lempoyang on cervical cancer:




Readers of this blog please note that the report refers to laboratory results on laboratory animals.  Results on humans may differ significantly.  Extracts from many plants of the ginger family have been found to have cytotoxic effects on cancer cells in the laboratory but these does not necessarily translate to a cure.


Rhizomes are one of herbal medicines. Herbal medicines can be a substitute to medicines that are found on drugstores. Some of medical drugs are made also from herbal plants. Various scientists also conducted experiments and observation on herbal plants because it is the cheapest material that can be found to produce prescriptive drugs.
