Abstract

Evaluate the phytochemical analysis and nutritional value of the zingiber officinale roscae and  its therapeutic utility.  Phytochemical analysis is to determine the value of bioactive compounds and minerals in the plants. Phytochemical screening results showed that the presence of alkaloids, saponins, flavonoids, polyphenols, tannins like compound in the various extraction methods. The quantitative study was done by using gas chromatography method and mass spectroscopy analysis. Then the screening of all the analysis revealed that the plant has good metabolites which justify that it has therapeutic utility. The result of the proximate analysis is revealed that in zingiber officinale roscae. It is rich in calcium (46%) when compared to other elements like sodium, iron, cadmium, manganese, mercury which are present in the standard deviation value 1.007 to 0.005%. the most bioactive compound like gingerol, shagoal, curcumin and other compounds were shown in the qualitative analysis. The rhizome of zingiber officinale is also known as ginger. It is the most popular herb used in various foods and beverages and also traditional medicines. The herb is used to various diseases like stomach disorders, diabetes, hyper tension, cancer, spasm, etc .The chemical constituents which are present in the ginger like gingerol, shagoal, etc. The ginger has the properties like anticancer, antitumor, anti inflammatory, neuroprotective, hepto-protective activity etc.
