The Health  Benefits of Ginger Root 

    Results of laboratory studies as well as from small studies conducted among seasick sailors or ship 

passengers, found that ginger generally has more effectiveness for relieving motion sickness than placebo. 

Several comparisons between ginger and prescription or nonprescription drugs have been conducted for 

relieving the nausea of pregnancy, but results are inconclusive.

    In some of the studies, similar effectiveness was seen between ginger and the comparator drug, while other 

studies found less or no effectiveness for ginger as compared to the drugs. In general, no adverse effects were

 noted from using ginger, for either the mother or the developing baby. Ginger has also been used in folk 

medicine to treat minor gastrointestinal problems such as gas or stomach cramps. Recent studies may confirm 

that ginger directly affects the gastrointestinal tract, helping to improve muscle tone and to prevent abnormally

 rapid and strong intestinal contractions.

    Results of limited studies in animals with diabetes show that ginger may reduce blood levels of sugar and 

cholesterol, while also lowering blood pressure. However, no human studies with similar results have been 

reported. A few small studies that have been conducted in humans have shown some promise for 

supplemental ginger in the treatment of both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

    If a person has exercised too much or suffers from arthritis or rheumatism, ginger has been known to ease 

inflammation of the joints and muscle tissue. Due to its tremendous circulation-increasing qualities, ginger is 

thought to improve the complexion. It has reduced nervousness, eased tendonitis, and helped sore throats 

return to normal. Studies demonstrate that ginger can lower cholesterol levels by reducing cholesterol 

absorption in the blood and liver. It may also aid in preventing internal blood clots.

    Ginger root was recently the subject of a startling new research report presented at The American 

Association for Cancer Research conference in Phoenix. In the study, ginger actually suppressed cancer cells 

suggesting that the herb was able to fuel apoptosis or the death of the cancer cells. Ginger has been shown to 

work against skin, ovarian, colon and breast cancer. But it had not been shown to halt the progression of 

cancer until now. However, more research is required to confirm this.
