Abstract Jagetia, G. C., Baliga, M. S., Venkatesh, P. and Ulloor, J. N. Influence of Ginger Rhizome (Zingiber officinale Rosc) on Survival, Glutathione and Lipid Peroxidation in Mice after Whole-Body Exposure to Gamma Radiation. Radiat. Res. 160, 584–592 (2003). The radioprotective effect of the hydroalcoholic extract of ginger rhizome, Zingiber officinale (ZOE), was studied. Mice were given 10 mg/kg ZOE intraperitoneally once daily for five consecutive days before exposure to 6–12 Gy of… 
Ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.), a dietary supplement, protects mice against radiation-induced lethality: mechanism of action.
TLDR
The radioprotective effect of hydroalcoholic extract of ginger rhizome (Zingiber officinale; ZOE) was studied in mice and Ginger was found to scavenge *OH, O2*- and ABTS*+ radicals in a dose-dependent manner in vitro.
Effects of Zingiber officinale extract on antioxidation and lipid peroxidation in mice after exposure to 60 Co-γ-ray
Zingber officinale extract (ZOE) has been demonstrated to protect mice against radiation-induced sickness and mortality. In this study, we investigated protective ability of ZOE against
THE PHYSIOLOGICAL IMPACT OF GINGER, ZINGIBER OFFICINALE AND BLACK SEED OIL, NIGELLA SATIVA L. AS MEDICINAL PLANTS IN GAMMA-IRRADIATED RATS -
TLDR
The radioprotective role of ginger extract and black seed oil as an antioxidant defense system inducer is revealed and treatment of irradiated rats with GE or BSO ameliorated the changed levels of antioxidants in comparison with the control levels.
Jamun, Syzygium cumini Linn. Skeels, increases the survival of mice whole body exposed to different doses of γ-radiation
TLDR
Oral administration of jamun extract for five continuous days protected mice against the radiationinduced sickness and increased the survival, and free radical scavenging and increase in glutathione and reduction in lipid peroxidation may have contributed to the observed radioprotection.
Sharafeldin THE PHYSIOLOGICAL IMPACT OF GINGER , ZINGIBER OFFICINALE AND BLACK SEED OIL
The study reported the radioprotective effects of some herbal plants in rats exposed to gammaradiation. Male albino rats were treated orally with the ginger extract, GE (250 mg/kg) and black seed
The therapeutic effects of Zingiber officinale extract on mice irradiated by 60 Co γ-ray
TLDR
The findings indicated that gingerol had the therapeutic effects on mice against hematopoietic suppression and anti-oxidative damage caused by irradiation.
The protective effect of hydroalcoholic extract of Ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.) against iron-induced functional and histological damages in rat liver and kidney
TLDR
Ginger extract appears to exert protective effects against ferrous sulfate-induced hepatic and renal toxicity by reducing lipid peroxidation and chelating iron.
Changes in antioxidant activity induced by irradiation of clove (Syzygium aromaticum) and ginger (Zingiber officinale)
Summary Antioxidant properties of clove (Syzygium aromaticum) and ginger (Zingiber officinale) irradiated by doses of 5, 10, 20 and 30 kGy, respectively, were studied in methanolic extracts of

The evaluation of the radioprotective effect of Triphala (an ayurvedic rejuvenating drug) in the mice exposed to gamma-radiation.
TLDR
Toxicity study showed that triphala was non-toxic up to a dose of 240 mg/kg, where no drug-induced mortality was observed and the optimum protective dose of triphla was 1/28 of its LD50 dose.
Cystone, an ayurvedic herbal drug imparts protection to the mice against the lethal effects of gamma-radiation: a preliminary study.
TLDR
The optimum protection against irradiation was observed for 40 mg/kg cystone, where the highest number of survivors were reported by 30 days post irradiation and it was 8.34-fold greater than that of the irradiated control group.
Influence of the Leaf Extract of Mentha arvensis Linn. (Mint) on the Survival of Mice Exposed to Different Doses of Gamma Radiation
TLDR
It is clear that mint extract provides protection against the radiation-induced sickness and mortality and the optimum protective dose of 10 mg/kg is safe from the point of drug-induced toxicity.

In vivo radioprotective effect of Moringa oleifera leaves.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that pretreatment with the methanolic leaf extract of M. oleifera confers significant radiation protection to the bone marrow chromosomes in mice and this may lead to the higher 30 day survival after lethal whole body irradiation.

Modification of radiation response in mice by fractionated extracts of Panax ginseng.
TLDR
The results indicated that the water soluble extract of whole ginseng gave the best protection against gamma radiation, while the saponin fraction did not protect.

Radioprotective effect of leaf extract of Indian medicinal plant Ocimum sanctum.
TLDR
Water or aqueous ethanol extract of O. sanctum was given ip, either as a single dose or multiple doses, before a whole-body exposure to 11 Gy(LD100/30) of 60Co gamma radiation in albino mice, and it is not possible to attribute the observed protection to any particular compound at present.
