Ginger facts

Ginger aids digestion and is a popular remedy for nausea. Many use it for travel and morning sickness, and improves circulation. In natural medicine it is also used to protect against respiratory and digestive infections and to ease flatulence and griping pains. Ginger can be chewed to relieve toothache. Taken at the first signs of a cold or flu, hot ginger tea makes a comforting drink and may help to clear a blocked nose and stimulate the liver to remove toxins from the bloodstream. It is made with a teaspoon of freshly grated ginger, the juice of half a lemon and a teaspoon of honey, topped up with boiling water.
