CHEMginger is a dietary supplement designed to support the natural balance of the digestive system.*
The CHEMginger formula uses ginger root as its main ingredient. Ginger may promote a healthy inflammatory response vital for intestinal health. Ginger supports the natural function of the digestive tract, promoting caloric intake for sustained nutrition.
Ginger is commonly used to help maintain a healthy digestive system.*
One of the most feared and common side effects of patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation is nausea. Large scale studies have shown that natural products have the potential to decrease nausea while undergoing treatment. Nausea and vomiting are frequent side effects of cancer therapy. It has been reported to occur in as many as 70% of patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation.
Research has shown that taking ginger dietary supplements may decrease abdominal discomfort due to its anti-inflammatory effect, potentially decreasing occasional intestinal gas.1,2*
Ginger has been relied upon for more than 2,000 years to aid digestion and promote a normal intestinal and bowel system, and managing occasional diarrhea, and nausea. Purified and neutral-tasting capsules are specially formulated for efficient delivery to and absorption in the gastro-intestinal tract. Consuming fresh ginger root from the grocery store can help, but purified capsules may be more effective due to their easier and faster absorption in the gastro-intestinal tract. Also, the taste of fresh ginger might be offensive to patients on chemotherapy, as taste alterations are a common side effect of cancer therapies.
CHEMginger contains only dry root powder at the doses that have been proven in clinical trials for nausea.*
