We will take a closer look at 1 of the ingredients from our hair serum. What is it, and where do you find it, what is it used for, but above all, why is it in the hair serum?
The use of ginger in food is very old. That is how it is described in the Mahabharata of the Hindus, which dates from the fourth century BC. The Greeks ate ginger wrapped in bread. In the time of the Romans, ginger was used by those who could afford it, but after the collapse of the Roman Empire, ginger disappeared again. Only after trading with the Far East was resumed, ginger returned to Europe.
The ginger root is a unique root that nobody really knows where it originally came from. We do know that ginger root grows best in Asia. Europe does not have the climate to grow well. The root has not yet been found in the wild (not documented). There are old Chinese medicine books in which you can find that the root has been used in medicine for 4000 years. There is also evidence that ginger has been used as a spice for thousands of years. In the Middle Ages, ginger was already imported to the Netherlands, and it was very expensive just like pepper.
Ginger is rich in essential oils such as linoleic acid, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids, magnesium. phosphorus and potassium. Dandruff is also a cause of hair loss. Because the follicles become clogged with dead skin cells, this can lead to hair loss. Ginger contains antimicrobials, which helps to keep the rose under control. The root also contains gingerol, which help the blood vessels to relax and thereby also improves blood circulation.
