Ginger root has long been known to have medicinal properties. Its many benefits may include:
- As a digestive aid (relief of morning sickness, nausea, upset stomach, gas)
- As an anti-inflammatory (relief of arthritis symptoms as well as other chronic inflammation)
- Providing relief for upper respiratory infections (cough, stuffy nose, sore throat)
Some research also suggests ginger has antiviral and antibacterial properties, making it a great addition to your immune-boosting regime. (Read more about other immune-boosting foods and herbs here.)
