The Health Benefits of Ginger: From Anti-Nausea to Lower Blood Pressure & Beyond

Do suffer from motion sickness in cars, airplanes or on boats? The benefits of ginger can relieve your motion sickness and make you healthier!

Pickled ginger, ginger beer, gingerbread, gingersnaps.

We come across these forms of ginger pretty regularly. After all, ginger tastes great!

Warm and spicy, people have used ginger root for centuries to flavor everything from vegetables and meats to tea and desserts. In medieval Europe, it was a condiment on the table along with salt and pepper. In taverns, people used to sprinkle powdered ginger in their beer to make the first "ginger ale."

What we often call ginger root is actually the underground rhizome of the ginger plant and much more than a tasty addition at the table. The benefits of ginger and its medicinal qualities make it an effective treatment for a variety of ailments.

Traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda recommend ginger root to heal digestive troubles and decrease inflammation, and new research supports that this ancient cure has modern healing power!

    I was taking two blood pressure medications that could not control my blood pressure, then I read about ginger, drank the tea combined with slices of the root and my blood pressure is normal 110/70. I only take the 40mg of diavon in the morning. My pressure is normal at night so I do not take the 25mg of metroprolol.
