Nutritional Values and Health Benefits of Ginger

Ginger, scientific name Zingiber officinale, is a brown, tropical root that originated from China. Likewise, many practitioners in traditional Indian and Chinese medicines have been using ginger as a spice for many centuries. Ginger root contains essential oils like gingerol and zingerone. Many have been using ginger since ancient times for its anti-inflammatory, anti-flatulence, carminative and anti-bacterial properties. Other spices related to the same class of spices are turmeric, galangal and cardamom.

Customarily, even doctors in Eastern medicine use ginger. Specifically, to warm and stimulate the body and for treating digestive and respiratory disorders. Studies have shown that we can use ginger to improve vertigo, nausea and motion sickness during pregnancy. Other studies have also shown that ginger can help relief pain and swelling in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
