#sternermotd Gingerol! Since our students are feeling the heat of finals week, I thought it would be fitting to showcase the molecular vehicle of ginger’s fire!
Gingerol is present in fresh ginger. Cooking converts it to flavorful, but less feisty, zingerone, while drying converts it to the even hotter shogaol.
Gingerol gets its heat from its resemblance to capsaicin, the spicy molecule in chili peppers. The structural motif of a phenyl ring decorated with hydroxy and methoxy groups and a long carbon chain is just the right shape to fit into the TrpV1 receptor protein. This turns on a sensor system that registers sensations of heat, pain, and irritation.
Like other spice and seasoning molecules, gingerol is meant to be a chemical weapon that protects plants from predation. Humans have just decided that we like the burn!

Why follow C.E.N?
And why watch our stories?
Well, first of all I have a fat mini ginger cat who thinks he's a dog and a baby that is a size of a 2 year old and scoots or bunny hops. - that in itself should be enough 😂
I like food, weight training, healthy living and treats. Because you know #balance .
I love the holistic approach to living and make all my own products that are available to you guys! -much more 2 come!
I teach self love and worth to those who need it most. I believe that we can create a life in ANY situation and I share my own battles and experiences along the way.
I love love in all forms and I celebrate the fuck out of it! I know who I am and I'm comfortable with it. You will never see me try to be something I'm not and yes... sometimes I'm a bit of a dork too and post things on stories that no one will get unless you know me well. But hey, that's me!🤫💁♀️
I always share beautiful brands that I actually love and nothing is paid just honest reviews. .
I have a pretty crazy, busy life but nothing is impossible. You'll see!
