Curcuma aromatica

This aromatic and pretty ginger is probably the most useful among the gingers. It is recognized as a medical herb with strong antibiotic properties. Increasingly, its values to prevent and cure cancer are recognized. Read more about it below.

In an effort to remove cell accumulations such as a tumors, curcuma is often utilized. There are two species commonly used in cancer therapy that, like ginger, have a spicy taste.

Curcuma aromatica is one of them called yujin by the Chinese, after its affect on stagnation (yu means stagnation; jin refers to the golden color and to its ability to treat the lungs, the organ system associated with the metal element, for which gold is a symbol). It contains aromatic volatile oils that help to remove excessive lipids from the blood, reduce aggregation of platelets (sticking of the blood cells to form masses), and reduce inflammation.

In addition, the herb's oily components enhance fibrinolysis (the process that breaks down fibrous proteins, such as those that protect tumors from the immune system), and promote secretion of bile, which helps to clear congestion of the liver, promote digestion of fats, and aid intestinal peristalsis (intestinal movements that help evacuation). Thus, these essential oils help to get rid of many types of accumulation.

Your ecologically friendly production of ginger:
proudly traceable!

Imagine, the traceability of your supply chain leads your customers to the tropical jungles of the Mekong river and to the Himalayan mountains where Tibet meets Yunnan. Immerged in diverse culture and rich biodiversity, your customers can visit the places and people where your organic products start from pristine soils, clean air, and where they support the livelihood of local ethnic communities.

Would this add to the sustainability and credibility of your company?

Would your trademark benefit from international research publications lauding your company's involvement in saving the rain forest?

If you are in the food, cosmetics, flower, herbal, and medical business, certifying your products as contributing to rain forest and biodiversity protection will be an advantage with a competitive edge.

The TianZi Biodiversity Centre is working with German Universities to design land use systems, which are bound to change paradigms: we promote rare agro-biodiversity species, manage complexity, and find alternatives to destructive forms of mono culture.

If all this is in line with your company's business concept - please contact us.

The TianZi Team.

Gingers prefer the shaded and moist environment of valleys. If you have a dark corner in your garden or a group of trees that make lots of shade this will be ideal places.

In-door locations where no direct sun light can burn the leaves are good places.

Gingers make seeds that germinate well in warm and moist soil. Check if we have seeds or rhizomes available.

If you wish to import plants for sale on wholesale conditions, please send us an e-mail.

If you need rhizomes at larger quantities, please write to us.
