Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education

Inflammation can play an important role in the pathogenic mechanism of some diseases such as kidney disease. Most medicines that control inflammatory are expensive and with prolonged consumption have potential toxic effects that cause gastrointestinal, cardiovascular disorders and immunodeficiency. Thus, ginger that is a nontoxic spice with minor side effects that the FDA diagnosed it as safe and has anti-inflammatory properties is suggested as a nephroprotective supplement.
