Ginger is an ancient herbal stem which was first grown and used in Asian countries such as India and China in food and medicine.
Ginger is the underground stem (rhizomes) of the Zingiber officinale plant and has been highly prized for its healing properties for over 5000 thousand years. In ancient China the herb was used to treat a variety of illnesses such as nausea, diarrhea, stomachaches, and rheumatism to name a few.
That's wonderful Katiem2 :) I use a lot of ginger in my cooking. It helps to keep the colds and coughs at bay to a certain extent.
I tried Yogi ginger tea this weekend and it was really pleasing. I'm now working the healthful benefits of ginger into my lifestyle. :)K
