In this study aqueous extract of ginger (Zingiber officinale ) Roots were used for antibacterial activity against various Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria (Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus vulgaris, Streptococcus pyogenes and Staphylococcus aureus). growth inhibition was evaluated by the disc diffusion. The extract of ginger (G) showed clear antibacterial activity against pathogenic bacteria, which this activity was enhanced with the increasing of concentrations belongs to them. The latest concentration (0.4mg/ml) of the extract gave highest activity against Klebsiella pneumonia, Proteus vulgaris, Streptococcus pyogenes and Staphylococcus aureus . Antimicrobial activity of ginger extract was compared with a number of antibiotics (A) that known for their ability include, nalidixic acid, trimethoprim, chloromphenicol, gentamicin and erythromycin by using antibiogram test. Antimicrobial activity of latest concentration of ginger was better than that to Chloromphenicol, Gentamicin against Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus vulgaris, Streptococcus pyogenes and Staphylococcus aureus .

The antibacterial activity and medicinal properties of ginger extracts were studied. Ginger extracts were obtained using solvents, n-hexane, ethyl acetate, ethanolic soxhlet and water. The extracts were assayed for antibacterial activity and bacterial growth inhibition activity. The results showed that all the extracts except the water extract have antibacterial activity and that the inhibition of bacterial growth was dose dependent. The results also showed that ginger extracts possesses antibac...

Ginger (Zingiber officinale Roscoe) has been used widely as a food spice and an herbal medicine. In particular, its gingerol-related components have been reported to possess antimicrobial and antifungal properties, as well as several pharmaceutical properties. However, the effective ginger constituents that inhibit the growth of oral bacteria associated with periodontitis in the human oral cavity have not been elucidated. This study revealed that the ethanol and n-hexane extracts of ginger exhib...

Abstract Twenty eight essential oils were evaluated for their antibacterial properties, against four pathogenic bacteria ( Escherichia coli O157:H7, Listeria monocytogenes 2812 1/2a, Salmonella Typhimurium SL 1344 and Staphylococcus aureus ). Essential oils were introduced into Brain Heart Infusion agar (BHI) (15 ml) at a concentration of 0.003%, 0.006%, 0.013%, 0.025%, 0.05%, 0.1%, 0.2%, 0.4% and 0.8% (vol/vol) to determine the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and the maximal tolerated co...

Throughout the years numerous investigations concerning the inhibition of microorganisms by spices, herbs, their extracts, essential oils and various constituents have been reported. Many of these materials possess significant antimicrobial activity, which in many cases is due primarily to a particular constituent. Interpretation and comparison of results of various studies is complicated by variations in the methodology used for the determination of antimicrobial activity. The antimicrobial act...

The antimicrobial effects of garlic, ginger, carrot and turmeric pastes against Escherichia coli O157:H7 in laboratory buffer and model food system were investigated. Turmeric paste, fresh carrot, ginger and garlic pastes from roots, and commercial ginger and garlic paste were heated alone or with buffered peptone water (BPW) or ground beef at 70°C for 7 min. All samples were inoculated with a three strain cocktail of overnight cultures of E. coli O157: H7 and stored at 4°C and 8°C for 2 weeks. ...

New, safe antimicrobial agents are needed to prevent and overcome severe bacterial, viral, and fungal infections. Based on our previous experience and that of others, we postulated that herbal essential oils, such as those of origanum, and monolaurin offer such possibilities. We examined in vitro the cidal and/or static effects of oil of origanum, several other essential oils, and monolaurin on Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus anthracis Sterne, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Helicobacte...

The antimicrobial effect in vitro of aqueous and ethanolic extracts of garlic (Allium sativum Linn.), ginger (Zingiber officinale Roscoe) and lime (Citrus aurantifolia Linn.) juice were assayed against Staphylococcus aureus; Bacillus spp., Escherichia coli and Salmonella spp. All the test organisms were susceptible to undiluted lime-juice. The aqueous and ethanolic extracts of garlic and ginger singly did not inhibit any of the test organisms. The highest inhibition zone of 19 mm was observed wi...

Abstract The effect of modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) on the most important spoilage fungi of bread was investigated. Penicillium commune , P. roqueforti , Aspergillus flavus and Endomyces fibuliger were able to grow at oxygen levels down to 0.03%, while the chalk mould E. fibuliger was capable of growing even in the presence of an oxygen absorber. High levels of carbon dioxide retarded growth but not completely. As an alternative to MAP active packaging (AP) using volatile essential oils (...

ABSTRACTSpices are parts of plants that due to their properties are used as colorants, preservatives, or medicine. The uses of spices have been known since long time, and the interest in the potential of spices is remarkable due to the chemical compounds contained in spices, such as phenylpropanoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and anthocyanins. Spices, such as cumin (cuminaldehyde), clove (eugenol), and cinnamon (cinnamaldehyde) among others, are known and studied for their antimicrobial and antioxid...

Natural products are became main source for the discovery of new drugs. Ginger has strong antibacterial activity and to some extent antifungal properties. In vitro studies have shown that active constituents of ginger inhibit multiplication of colon bacteria, these bacteria ferment undigested carbohydrates causing flatulence, this can be counteracted with ginger. Traditional medicine as an alternative form of health care and reduce the microbial resistance to the available antibiotics, cost of t...
