For thousands of years now, Asian, Indian, and Arabic healers have prized ginger root as both a food and a potent medicine. This special plant belongs to the same family as turmeric and cardamom and has been used for a very long time to relieve nausea and vomiting caused by seasickness and disease. During the sixteenth century spice trade in Europe, this special plant started to get noticed by physicians far and wide as a way to soothe stomach ailments of all kinds (even those caused by imbibing a bit too much alcohol), and modern science has come to back up this assertion. Since then, we have discovered many more benefits to ginger such as, reducing pain/inflammation, stimulating circulation, inhibits the rhotovirus and certain bacterias, and it may even help to prevent stomache ulcers. Today, you can find ginger root in a lot of things, including anti-nausea medicine.
