Ganthoda, also known as long pepper root, Peepramul, or pippali, is a well-known Ayurvedic spice. It may be used in four ways: as a spice, an ayurvedic medicine, a therapeutic herb, and as a catalyst to enhance the impact of other plants. In addition, it has anti-ageing properties. Piperine is found in long peppers. Insufficient blood circulation is stimulated by piperine. When combined with other active components in medication or product, it improves absorption of the other active compounds in the drug or product. 

What is Ganthoda Powder?

In addition to Peepramul, it is also known as Ganthoda, which is different from sonth (dried ginger). As a powder, it is often mixed with ginger powder, jaggery and water to relieve stomach and joint pain. As the name implies, Peepramul powder is made from a rhizoid root, which is closely related to ginger root. Because of the presence of volatile oils, Peepramul root has a distinct smell and taste. These volatile oils are a mixture of zingerone, shogaols, and gingerols.
