Ginger Rescue is a dietary supplement for drug-free nausea relief and digestive support with active ginger compounds in a convenient and tasty chewable tablet for both adults and kids.



Ginger contains over 100 bioactive constituents that have been scientifically analyzed. However, only a fraction has been researched extensively with regard to therapeutic effects. Findings to date suggest the key bioactive compounds in ginger responsible for the physiological activity related to nausea and digestion include gingerols, shogoals, and gingerdiols. Where many over-the-counter stomach remedies work only by blocking stomach acid production or absorbing stomach acid, ginger actives interact on multiple fronts: reducing inflammation, relaxing intestinal smooth muscle to keep food moving in the right direction, and fine-tuning the efficiency of neurotransmitters in the digestive process.


Clinical studies and scientific reviews are ongoing. Some of the most reliable research on ginger’s effects on nausea and digestion is summarized here. Please consult your physician before using any nutraceutical, over-the-counter drug or prescription drug.

The Benefits of Chewables

Freeze-dried Ginger

The key ingredient in Ginger Rescue is freeze-dried ginger. This method of herb preparation is preferred by many experts as it allows for higher nutrient retention, less oxidation or damage to sensitive constituents and better flavor. Additionally, being a ‘whole-herb’ preparation as compared to an extract or oil where you may have just have a few compounds and the rest of the plant is not used, freeze-dried maintains the wisdom and integrity of the whole herb.

Comparison of drying methods and their effects on different herbs. “Oven drying caused greater reduction in the levels of phytochemicals compared to freeze drying. (Salunkhe, 1974).”

While this study appears to be set out to disprove the alleged benefits to freeze-drying, it specifically references ginger and ginger appears to be one type of herb where this format of preparation is preferred (in the case of maintaining Gingerol levels) : “The oily phenylpropanoid derivative gingerol has also been studied. Freeze-drying of ginger (Zingiber officinale) did not decrease the levels of the pungent principle, gingerol (Zhang et al. , 1994”
