Abstract:
In this growing age where life is as uncertain as the multi-drug resistance capacity of any known micro-organism, immense efforts are continually being taken each day to empower the already existing drug repository. In this similar scenario, one such unexplored domain is phytochemicals. Phytochemicals are non-nutrient, bioactive plant compounds that can cure major non-communicable yet risk posing human diseases as they have been shown to possess enormous potential to reduce oxidative damage to cells, show anti-inflammatory properties and trigger the apoptosis of damaged cells. In this paper, focus has mainly been given on ginger as the prime source for 6-gingerol, its extraction and subsequent purification. Some daily used products have also been evaluated for the presence of 6-gingerol and a comparative analysis has been made to suggest the best method for obtaining a maximum yield for the compound.
