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.

To sum up

Neutralizes nausea

combats cancer

Aids digestion

Tames Arthritis Pain

Enhances blood flow

Soothes heartburn

    Fully Agree with your about medicinal values of Ginger
    It also kills the harmful affects of food which we eat.
    Many things like black gram has high content which builds gas in stomach,ginger helps body to kill this harmful effect.

    fantastic photo - i love ginger, use it in soups, mains, desserts and drinks. the ginger you can buy in japan is so fresh, the brown skin would be almost clear as they packaged it soon after picking. here in australia, it looks just like in this photo. i used heaps of ginger tonight for a japanese dish called 'gingered pork'. ginger and pork go real well together, don't they?
