Pharmacology

Greater galangal tincture The Gastric antisecretory, antiulcer and cytoprotective properties of ethanolic extract of Alpinia galanga are impressive.
The effect of Alpinia galanga extract has been studied on induced gastric ulcers. The ethanolic extract significantly reduced the intensity of gastric mucosal damage induced by pyloric ligation and hypothermic restraint stress. It produces a significant decrease in gastric secretion and has a highly significant cytoprotective effect. Pretreatment with the extract significantly prevented hypothermic stress-induced gastric wall mucus depletion. These findings suggest that a significant antisecretory and cytoprotective action of Galanga may be responsible for its antiulcer activity.

The rhizome of Alpinia galanga is widely used in the Ayurvedic system of medicine in the treatment of various inflammatory diseases, diabetes mellitus and obesity.
The hypolipidemic action of the ethanolic extract of this plants was studied. Oral administration of extract effectively lowered the serum and tissue levels of total cholesterol, triglycerides, phospholipids and significantly increased the serum levels of high density lipoproteins (HDL). The results are indicative of these plants in various lipid disorders especially atherosclerosis.

Galanga kills cancer cells and protects healthy cells from becoming cancerous; this is a dual benefit that is rare among cancer treatments.
An isolated chemical (Galangin (3,5,7-trihydroxyflavone), made from the galangal root killed three times more cancer cells than healthy cells. Among cells damaged by the chemical galangal extract, negative effects were reversible.
