    Ginger is a plant that lives well in warm climates (China, India, Africa, Caribbean). Its root has been used for centuries as a spice to flavour food. But not only that: it is a traditional remedy for stomach pain and nausea, it improves digestion and saliva production.

    Recent scientific studies have shown positive effects of ginger on movement nausea (car sickness), chemotherapy or post-anaesthesia, but also on headache and muscle pain. Further studies are needed to confirm the effect of ginger on pain and improved fat metabolism.

    Is ginger the panacea, a remedy for all evils? Maybe, but the contraindications on use in pregnancy, breastfeeding and diabetes remain.

    There are some cases of side effects – excess gas, digestive mucous membrane irritation, stomach pain – which increase if you take more than 5 grams of ginger per day.
