What does Ginger do?
Ginger is a perennial plant that grows in India, China, Mexico, and several other countries. The rhizome (underground stem) is used as both a spice and in herbal medicine. Traditional Chinese Medicine has recommended ginger for over 2,500 years and has been used for abdominal bloating, coughing, vomiting, diarrhea, and rheumatism. Ginger is commonly used in the Ayurvedic system of medicine for the treatment of inflammatory joint diseases, such as arthritis and rheumatism.
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY – ginger exerts potent antioxidant effects and has been shown to offer relief from pain and swelling in cases of rheumatoid arthritis,osteoarthritis,and muscular problems. The therapeutic benefits are likely due to a reduction in free radical damage as well as inhibition of inflammatory compounds such as thromboxanes, leukotrienes, and other prostaglandins.
ANTI-NAUSEA - ginger is thought to act directly on the gastrointestinal system to reduce nausea. Ginger has been shown to reduce the symptoms of motion sickness associated with travel by boat and car. Two double-blind clinical trials have found that ginger may reduce nausea due to anesthesia following surgery. This suggests that ginger may be helpful for preventing chemotherapy-induced nausea. Up to 1g of ginger per day would appear prudent for morning sickness during pregnancy.
