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.

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.
