Ginger (Zingiber officinale) – ancient medicinal plant
Like no other root, ginger can suppress nausea (travel and seasickness). The essential oils of the root have an antibacterial and antiviral effect, making it an effective remedy for flu-like infections. Ginger can counteract stomach irritation and gastritis by regulating the mucus layer and stomach acid. Depending on the origin of the ginger, differences in quality and composition or concentration of various ingredients must be considered.
