Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a flowering plant whose rhizome, ginger root or simply ginger, is widely used as a spice or a folk medicine.
It is a herbaceous perennial which grows annual pseudostems about a meter tall bearing narrow leaf blades.
Ginger is in the family Zingiberaceae, to which also belong turmeric (Curcuma longa), cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum), and galangal.
Ginger originated in the tropical rainforests from the Indian subcontinent to Southern Asia where ginger plants show considerable genetic variation. As one of the first spices exported from the Orient, ginger arrived in Europe during the spice trade, and was used by ancient Greeks and Romans. India and China are the largest suppliers of the herb used today.

We produce Zingiber / Ginger Root Capsules using powdered herb. The powder is very fine, allowing it to flow into the encapsulation machine. Fine powder is also easier for the body to absorb. Sometimes we produce the powder ourselves, from whole or cut herbs. Other times we source powdered herbs directly from our suppliers.
Empty capsules are positioned in the the capsule manufacturing machine. We use vegetarian capsules, size '0'. The empty capsules are then filled with the finely-ground powdered herb. A sufficient quantity of herb is pressed into the empty capsules. Once the capsules are full of powdered herb the tops of the capsules are positioned and firmly pressed into position.
The finished capsules are removed from the machine. Initially we store them in bulk bags. Depending on the type of capsule we may then use our capsule counting machine to dispense capsules into bottles.
Zingiber / Ginger Root Capsules are a very convenient way to store and prescribe this herb. Less energy is used in the production process and they take less space to store.
At Herbal Apothecary we produce a wide range of single herb capsules as well as capsules made with blended herbs. The process for producing a blended capsule involves combining 2 or more powders together before encapsulation. Special care is taken to ensure the herbs are thoroughly blended, ensuring an equal distribution of herb through all capsules. Blended herb capsules are a fantastic way of prescribing more complex remedies in a way which is easy for the patient to take.
