Ginger's Benefits


Ginger is one of the most important ingredients in Asian cooking, both culinarily and medicinally. It has been used for centuries for its aromatic flavour, but more importantly as a spiritual and medicinal cleanser in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine. The natural chemicals in ginger called gingerols help inhibit inflammatory substances in the body, as well as alleviate pain related to both asthma and arthritis.

Fresh ginger steeped hot water is useful in treating nausea related to motion sickness, pregnancy and even hangovers.

  • Forgotten your toothbrush? Pickled ginger's anti-bacterial properties and clean taste works wonders as a mouth freshener.
  • Like aspirin, it is an effective blood thinner.
  • Also good for sore throats (hot water, ginger, lemon rind and honey), and its decongestant properties help fight off colds and reduce fever by inducing perspiration and easing the aches and pains.
