Vanillylacetone is a nontoxic methoxyphenol isolated from Zingiber officinale, with potent anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, antilipolytic, antidiarrhoeic, antispasmodic and anti-tumor properties. Zingerone alleviates oxidative stress and inflammation, down-regulates NF-κB mediated signaling pathways. Zingerone acts as an anti-mitotic agent, and inhibits the growth of neuroblastoma cells.

How to use

In Vitro:

Vanillylacetone is similar in chemical structure to other flavor chemicals such as vanillin and eugenol. It is used as a flavor additive in spice oils and in perfumery to introduce spicy aromas. Fresh ginger does not contain vanillylacetone; cooking the ginger transforms gingerol, which is present, into vanillylacetone through a retro-aldol reaction. Vanillylacetone is likely the active constituent responsible for the antidiarrheal efficacy of ginger.
