Alpinia zerumbet for health

Alpinia zerumbet and its Healing Properties

(Excerpt from Natural Society. ) "Also known as light galanga, pink porcelain lily, shell flower, shell ginger, variegated ginger, butterfly ginger, yàn shanjiang in Chinese, getto in Japanese, and Sannin in the local dialect of Okinawa, the leaves and the extracted oils of the plant have long been used in Asia to relieve fevers and malaria, as well as to serve as a general health tonic. It is also used in South and Central America as a diuretic, antihypertensive, and antiulcerogenic.  Okinawa, Japan, whose population is frequently cited as ‘the healthiest on earth,’ boasts an impressively low incidence of cardiovascular disease, stroke and cancer. Here, the leaves of Alpinia Zerumbet are consumed regularly, very commonly used to wrap rice dumplings and decocted into teas. As is true of many traditional medicines, most of the people who consume Sannin have not researched or intensively studied the plant, but are somewhat aware of its general benefits, as a part of their culture.  Now, modern research has confirmed hypotensive and antioxidant activity in the leaves and rhizomes and extracts of the plant. It all comes together to show its potential benefits for diabetics, patients with atherosclerosis, and a wide range of skin diseases.  ..."
