Ginger capsules with icelandic moss
Soothes sore throats and coughs and combats nausea and rheumatic pain
Ginger is a well-known health product and has long been used as a spice, particularly in Southeast Asia. Ginger is a perennial plant (Zingiber officinalis) widely cultivated in tropical areas such as Jamaica. The root is highly flavourful and therefore extremely popular both as a spice in cooking and for medicinal purposes. Ginger has been used to reduce discomfort caused by nausea, such as pregnancy-induced nausea and travel sickness. It has also been used to soothe headaches (including migraines), alleviate inflammation and rheumatic pain and soothe sore throats and coughs and other symptoms of the common cold.
Modern herbalists recommend ginger for the same purposes as it was used in earlier times, particularly to treat colds, the flu and asthma. Ginger is also believed to stimulate blood flow and combat nausea, such as from motion sickness and menstruation. Ancient Chinese sailors are known to have chewed on ginger root to reduce sea sickness. Many believe that the root also has healing effects on ulcers, cures impotence and alleviates arthritis and depression.
