Getting to know ginger

From savoury dishes and sweet desserts to hot teas and cold beverages, ginger is trending right now! This is likely due to its unique, versatile flavour and long list of potential health benefits.

Despite the recent surge in popularity, ginger is by no means new – especially when it comes to managing nausea. A “go-to” traditional health remedy for thousands of years, ginger has been used in herbal medicine to treat everything from dyspepsia and flatulent colic, to colds and fever.

Where does ginger come from?

So, where does this special remedy come from? Ginger (Zingiber Officinale) is from the roots and shoots of the ginger plant. The plants thrive in warmer climates such as China, India, Africa, and the Caribbean.

How does ginger help with nausea?

The main compounds of ginger are the aromatic essential oils, anti-oxidants, and the pungent oleo-resin. These active aromatic or pungent compounds are known as gingerols, shogaols, and zingerone, and they’re responsible for most of the medicinal properties of ginger. Gingerol has been clinically proven to help prevent nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness.
