Ginger is a flowering plant that originated in Southeast Asia. It’s among the healthiest (and most delicious) spices on the planet.
Ginger can be used fresh, dried, powdered, or as an oil or juice. It’s a very common ingredient in recipes. It’s sometimes added to processed foods and cosmetics.
Ginger can be used as an alternative medicine to help in treating nausea and vomiting after surgery, dizziness, menstrual pain, arthritis, preventing morning sickness.
Ginger has also been used for weight loss and to prevent motion sickness and seasickness.
Ginger can be used during the first 3-4 days of a menstrual cycle to somewhat reduce painful menstrual cramps.
