Black Ginger Extract
Supports healthy circulation and physical vigor

Standardized to 4% 5,7-dimethoxyflavone
Swanson Black Ginger Extract features a premier standardized Kaempferia paviflora extract with a guaranteed concentration of 4% 5,7-dimethoxyflavone. Some research into these compounds would seem to theoretically support the traditional use of black ginger for sexual health and physical vigor in that they appear to provide some support to circulatory health and tissue integrity. In the heart and circulatory system, black ginger constituents have been found to exert mild relaxing properties on muscle tissue and endothelium (the inner lining of your blood vessels) while protecting the endothelium from oxidative stress by acting as antioxidants. These actions have positive ramifications on the entire cardiovascular system. Specific methoxyflavones in black ginger have demonstrated cholinergic properties, meaning they support levels of choline and acetylcholine in the brain to promote mental and emotional wellbeing.
