What is Ferzinger™?

Ferzinger™ contains bioactive ginger. It’s produced by fermenting ginger with Aspergillus oryzae. Ginger is the common name for the root of Zingiber officinale Roscoe, a spice traditionally used in both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. The most valuable part of ginger is the root. Ginger contains many bioactive compounds, including 6-gingerol, 6-shogaol, and 6-paradol.


Why fermenting ginger?

During drying, a part of 6-gingerol is converted to the more active form 6-shogaol, a compound found in very low concentrations in fresh ginger. The fermentation process of ginger with Aspergillus oryzae triples the content of 6-shogaol compared to non-fermented ginger powder. There is also a partial conversion to 6-paradol, the stable bioactive metabolite of 6-shogaol. This end metabolite offers the greatest health potential of all three compounds.

Thanks to the special fermentation process, the active substances are made more readily available to the body so that we can rightly speak of a very powerful ginger preparation. Ferzinger™ or Ginger Koji Powder also contains enzymes (α-amylase and protease) that support digestion.

Science

Recent animal studies show how fermented ginger can actually change the structure of the gastrointestinal tract and improvements were seen in their intestinal villus height and cellular structure. Fermented ginger improved the absorption of nutrients and even supported a normal inflammatory response.

A small study with Ginger Koji Powder or GKP (Ferzinger™) also shows that fermented ginger causes a recovery of body temperature in women with cold sensitivity or cold intolerance.

Ginger in general can be used for many applications (see health benefits).
