In this study, the ameliorative effects of ginger extract on catecholamine metabolism were investigated in different brain regions of male wistar rats 72h post chronic ethanol (EtOH) ingestion. Main methods:Ethanol (2% w/v) was administered to rats by orogastric intubation. Biochemical investigation was performed for monoamine metabolising enzymes in five groups: (i) Control, (ii) EtOH treated, (iii) EtOH treated along with ginger extract (iv) Ethanol withdrawal (EW) and (v) EtOH withdrawal…

A review of the effect of Ginger in inflammation

Ginger extract with the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as 6 Gingerols, 6-Shogoals, Zhingerol, and etc can reduces inflammatory factors through their effects on inflammatory, antioxidant, and serotonin mechanisms, reducing enzyme antioxidant and useful in reducing inflammatory disease and its complications, and treatment.

The effects of ginger supplementation on inflammatory, antioxidant, and periodontal parameters in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with chronic periodontitis under non-surgical periodontal therapy. A double-blind, placebo-controlled trial

It is recommended that ginger supplementation along with NSPT may be effective in the improvement of inflammation, oxidative, and periodontal status in T2DM with CP.

The ginger extract has a neuroprotective role against monosodium glutamate toxicity effect and increased in monoamine content in most of the tested brain areas at different time intervals.

Effects of chronic ethanol treatment on monoamine levels in rat hippocampus and striatum.

Results indicate alterations in monoamines, mainly in the striatum, after chronic ethanol, which are influenced by dose and by the length of time after the last drug administration.

Alcohol withdrawal-induced changes in brain biogenic amines in mice: Influence of the genotype

The differences in withdrawal effects the authors noted between the two strains may be linked to the specific chemical neuroanatomy of the strains, and could be implied in the well known variability of withdrawal induced behavior in man.

Zingiber officinale Mitigates Brain Damage and Improves Memory Impairment in Focal Cerebral Ischemic Rat

The beneficial effect of ginger rhizome to protect against focal cerebral ischemia was demonstrated and the cognitive enhancing effect and neuroprotective effect occurred partly via the antioxidant activity of the extract.

Ethanol enhances the release of dopamine and serotonin in the nucleus accumbens of HAD and LAD lines of rats.

The results indicate that (1) the ACC DA system is more sensitive than the ACC 5-HT system to intraperitoneal ethanol administration in both lines and (2) there is no evidence for a relationship between alcohol preference and sensitivity of the ACCDA and 5- HT systems to acute intra peritonealanol administration.

Serotonergic and dopaminergic involvement in ethanol intake.

It is proposed that multiple neurotransmitters and hormones collectively orchestrate the reward profile of ethanol, ethanol being the conductor and every instrument/transmitter being able to play the reward tune to some degree, but not until all instruments are playing together the full reward symphony will be experienced.

Ethanol Self-Administration Restores Withdrawal-Associated Deficiencies in Accumbal Dopamine and 5-Hydroxytryptamine Release in Dependent Rats

It is suggested that deficits in accumbal monoamine release may contribute to the negative affective consequences ethanol withdrawal and, thereby, motivate ethanol-seeking behavior in dependent subjects.

CRF antagonist reverses the “anxiogenic” response to ethanol withdrawal in the rat

Increased activity of central CRF systems may mediate the anxiogenic effects of ethanol withdrawal, and alpha-helical CRF significantly antagonized the “anxiogenic-like” effects ofanol withdrawal in the plus-maze.
