The Study Shows the Health Benefits of Ginger Root

     Ginger root is well known as a remedy for travel sickness, nausea and indigestion and is used for wind, 

colic, irritable bowel, loss of appetite, chills, cold, flu, poor circulation, menstrual cramps, dyspepsia , 

indigestion and gastrointestinal problems such as gas and stomach cramps.

     Ginger has been well researched and many of its traditional uses confirmed. It is a warming remedy, ideal 

for boosting the circulation, lowering high blood pressure and keeping the blood thin in higher doses. Ginger is 

anti-viral and makes a warming cold and flu remedy.

     Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory herb and there has been much recent interest in its use for joint 

problems. It has also been indicated for arthritis, fevers, headaches, toothaches, coughs, bronchitis, 

osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, to ease tendonitis, lower cholesterol and blood-pressure and aid in 

preventing internal blood clots.

     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 

(or sugar pills). 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.
