Ginger benefits

It has been found that ginger may affect gastrointestinal function, and has been used for thousands of years to treat nausea (especially forms of motion sickness).  It is theorised that ginger suppresses certain neurohypophysial hormones from being released into the bloodstream that can contribute to nausea.  It may also have some anti cancer proerties, but the evidence is not yet strong enough to warrant using it for that purpose.
