Many of us simply think of ginger as just one more spice in the rack – only appearing for Christmas goodies, stir-fries and Indian curries. But once you know what else ginger is good for, you may wish to use it a lot more!

Ginger makes your body healthier while it makes your food tastier. For thousands of years, it’s been an herbal superstar. People from all over the world have relied on it to aid digestion, improve circulation, calm nausea and soothe headaches and other pain. It works so well that one pound of it was once worth the price of a sheep.

Ginger is much cheaper nowadays, but it still works wonders on everyday ailments. Incredibly, ginger might also be a powerful weapon against more serious problems, like cancer and heart disease.

Now you know about them, take advantage of ginger’s spicy powers more often. Toss some chopped ginger into a rice dish, or steep some in a pot of tea. Eat candied or pickled ginger by the handful. Any way you slice it, ginger’s just too good – and good for you – to pass up.
