The Beneficial Powers of Ginger: For Aches, Pains, & Nausea

Updated: Jan 10

Delicious & Nutritious

By: Pam Smith, RDN


n India, ginger is considered a universal medicine. It’s used to help treat pretty much everything, including headaches, muscle pain, joint pain, and even back injuries. Widely shown to quell nausea stemming from motion sickness, chemotherapy, and pregnancy, ginger is also a natural anti-inflammatory agent. It’s packed with gingerols, which are plant compounds that ramp up production of pain-numbing endorphins, dampen inflammation, improve blood flow, and relax tense, spasming muscles. Ginger is also rich in blood pressure regulating magnesium, a trace mineral many Americans don’t get enough of.


Use It:

Grate a bit of fresh ginger and add to stir-fries, juices, salad dressings, or fruit salad. Use powdered ginger in baked goods and oatmeal. You can also make fresh ginger tea by boiling several thin slices of fresh ginger with honey and water. I add it to spice blends and sauces for an exotic flavor boost.
