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.
