Medicinal benefits of ginger:

For almost 6000 years, people in China and India have regarded ginger as a universal cure-all. Even today, it is a component in about half of the traditional Chinese and herbal remedies. One of the earliest medical books in China, written about 2000 BC and several ancient Indian texts written in the 3rd or 4th century AD, all discuss treatments using ginger.

 

The wonderful flavour and scent of ginger come from the oils zingerone, gingerols and shogoals. There is a considerable amount of research that shows these oils in ginger can be effective as:
