Ginger has a whole host of health benefits, and can be used in the treatment of a wide variety of conditions.
Treating Travel Sickness
In a US study of naval cadets who were prone to seasickness, those given ginger powder suffered less than those who were given a placebo; and this appears to translate to all forms of motion sickness.
Maintains Healthy Blood Circulation
Ginger contains chromium, magnesium and zinc which can help to improve blood flow.
Reduces Pain and Inflammation
Ginger is both a natural analgesic and an anti-inflammatory.
Reduces Risk of Stroke
By inhibiting the build up of fatty deposits in your arteries, ginger can reduce your risk of suffering a stroke.
Curing Chronic "Wet" Coughs
Ginger is an expectorant - that means it will help you cough up any mucus or phlegm that might be causing ongoing respiratory problems.
