GINGER is an herb, spice, and supplement that promotes digestion, helps relieve nausea during pregnancy and nausea from vertigo or motion sickness and sea sickness. It is harvested from the roots of the GINGER plant and sold in markets for cooking and seasoning. Ginger contains compounds that cause warmth in the mouth and throat including gingerol, Shogaols, zingerones, and paradols. These substances are chemically similar to capsaicin in chili, and pipeline in black pepper which account for the warming effects of black pepper and chili. Ginger is available as the root, as a powder, in some ginger ales and beers, as a candy, and as a supplement capsule. Ginger is also available in pickled form eaten together with sushi and other Asian dishes. There have been some studies showing relief of joint pain with ginger supplements. Consider this gift from the plant world as a supplement to relieve nausea, and improve digestion for better overall health!!! #drdavidheber #ginger #nausea #motionsickness #vertigo to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com
