What are the health benefits of ginger?

Ginger is a familiar and well known spice that has a warming quality ideal for winter months. Whilst it does not contain significant quantities of vitamins and minerals, it is highly flavoursome and has a number of medicinal compounds.

Some of Ginger’s traditional medicinal uses (largely due to compounds called gingerols) which have been supported in medical trials include:

  • Assisting with digestive complaints,  including vomiting
  • Relieving nausea caused by motion sickness and pregnancy
  • Relief of inflammatory conditions including arthritis and myalgia conditions
  • Analgesic effects for conditons such as migraines
