This study aims to examine the effect of ginger beverage consumption on platelets activity in
apparently healthy Saudi adult volunteers.
As for the Saudi population, consumption of powdered ginger dissolved in hot water is a
common practice. Accordingly, in this study, it is tempting to speculate the effect of this
form of ginger consumption, given in separate time points per day, on platelet aggregation
profile by using platelet aggregation analogues. If positive results were obtained, the herb
could provide natural protection against the development of platelet aggregation
complications and could be a potential alternative to aspirin, used for improving blood
circulation and hematological pathophysiologies in diseased individuals.
