Ginger has a reputation for its health benefits, and with good reason. It has long been a household remedy for nausea, for stomach diseases, nausea during movement or morning sickness during pregnancy. A recent study funded by the National Cancer Institute found that ginger supplements helped reduce nausea from chemotherapy by 40%. Also helping during diseases are the properties of ginger that enhance immunity.
Ginger activates T-cells, a specific group of white blood cells that help attack viruses. In addition, ginger has an anti-inflammatory effect.
A 2012 study found that ginger compared to drugs such as cortisone and ibuprofen helped significantly relieve arthritic pain. So try our dried ginger as a sweet treat on its own or pour a few pieces into baked products to give them a spicy and healthy boost!
