Ginger

 

Ginger is a perennial plant that grows in India, China, Mexico, and several other countries. The rhizome (underground stem) is used.

Today, ginger remains a component of more than 50 percent of the traditional herbal remedies and has been used, over the centuries, to treat nausea, indigestion, fever and infection and to promote vitality and longevity. It is claimed that Ginger can save tens of thousands of lives and billions of dollars in lost work days. The world's favorite spice is reputed to have qualities that may prevent heart attacks, arthritis pain, and aid digestion, prevent colds and flu, skin cancers and aid weight loss. Confucius and Pliny praised it, Nostradamus included recipes for wine and ginger preserved in honey and the Koran speaks of a fountain of ginger flavored water. British University's Professor Roger Collier developed a ginger and garlic cocktail which he claims thins the blood, dissolves clots and lowers blood pressure. Further, these tests showed that ginger cuts down on bad UDL and raises good HDL cholesterol, contains no fat or sugar and can be added to foods to heighten flavor without adding calories.
