Although well known as a pleasant tasting cooking spice, it is not so widely known that ginger has been used for thousands of years, worldwide, for its numerous potent healing benefits. Ginger is an especially wonderful ally because its healing benefits are particular to so many of our daily health concerns. Probably best known as a superb digestive aid and nausea reliever, ginger also helps heal ulcers, supports cardiovascular health, reduces pain and inflammation, and speeds recovery from colds and flu while reducing fevers.

Additionally, the National Cancer Institute has recently identified ginger as one of the top ten foods offering the highest levels of anti-cancer activity. Most importantly, ginger accomplishes all these without the side effects associated with drugs.

When Paul Schulick, founder and CEO of New Chapter and master herbalist, began his review of ginger research, both its breadth and depth amazed him. Ginger’s benefits are so varied and valuable that Paul regards it as a true “superherb”. From this research, Paul's best-selling book Ginger: Common Spice and Wonder Drug was born and with it New Chapter's ginger products.

New Chapter’s 74-acre organic ginger farm, Luna Nueva, rests on the edge of the beautiful, pristine Children's Rain Forest in Costa Rica. Our farm radiates a lushness and vibrancy that reflects our commitment to environmental preservation. While establishing a farm of this kind was challenging, we felt it was essential to the quality of our products. Most commercial ginger is heavily fumigated, and we needed a consistent, superior-quality supply of organic ginger.

Demeter Certified - Luna Nueva, New Chapter’s organic farm in the rainforests of Costa Rica, is certified biodynamic by Demeter International, the largest certification organization for biodynamic agriculture and the oldest traditional organic certification in Europe. It’s regarded as the highest grade of organic farming in the world and the most difficult to come by. That’s because it requires biodiversity and ecosystem preservation, soil husbandry, livestock integration, prohibition of genetically engineered organisms, and labor-intensive practices that treat the farm as a living, holistic organism.
