Why does ginger relieve nausea?
I suffer from nausea and someone suggested I use ginger. Whyis ginger so great and which way is best to ingest it? Regards, Fliss.
Hi Fliss Traditionally, ginger has been used to alleviate symptoms of gastrointestinal distress. Studies have demonstrated that ginger is also very effective in preventing the symptoms of motion sickness, especially seasickness and nausea. It’s often used in pregnancy as a safe treatment for morning sickness. It also has potent anti-inflammatory effects and is often used to help with pain in osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.
Whenever possible choose fresh ginger over the dried form, as it’s not only superior in flavour but also contains higher levels of the active component of ginger (known as gingerols.) Fresh ginger root is widely available. You can add it to stir-fries, curries, make beautiful raw Hi Jay. The (incorrect) idea is that if you eat too late and go to bed on a full stomach, your body’s metabolism will slow down and instead of burning off the food you just ate, you’ll turn it all into fat and gain weight. Your body digests and uses energy via the same pathways morning, noon and night. Food eaten after 6pm
