Ginger at a Glance

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a rhizome in the Zingiberaceae family, which also includes turmeric, cardamom and galangal. Native to southern China, this root been used in TCM for more than 2,000 years for upset stomach, diarrhea and nausea. It's also a vital part of Ayurvedic medicine (traditional Hindu medicine), used for many centuries. India is currently the largest producer of ginger in the world.

Considered a “warming” herb in Ayurveda, ginger promotes circulation, immune and metabolic function and detoxification through the lymphatic system. It's also high in antioxidants, and contains powerful anti-inflammatory compounds. Many natural protocols for conditions to support a normal inflammatory response include ginger (see study below).

A number of studies have supported ginger's ability to ease post-surgery nausea and vomiting, and soothe motion sickness and morning sickness (see below).

Ginger Studies

According to The University of Maryland Medical Center:

Several studies, but not all, suggest ginger may work better than placebo in reducing some symptoms of motion sickness. In one trial of 80 new sailors who were prone to motion sickness, those who took powdered ginger had less vomiting and cold sweats compared to those who took placebo.

Human studies suggest that 1g daily of ginger may reduce nausea and vomiting in pregnant women when used for short periods (no longer than 4 days). Several studies have found ginger is better than placebo in relieving morning sickness.

In a study of 261 people with osteoarthritis of the knee, those who took ginger extract twice daily had less pain and needed fewer pain-killing medications than those who received placebo. It may take several weeks for ginger to work.

Preliminary studies suggest ginger may lower cholesterol and help prevent blood from clotting. That can help treat heart disease where blood vessels can become blocked and lead to heart attack or stroke. Other studies suggest ginger may help improve blood sugar control among people with type 2 diabetes. More research is needed to determine whether ginger is safe or effective for heart disease and diabetes.
