Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a plant whose roots have been used in China and India since ancient times. Europe spread throughout the 13th century thanks to Marco Polo. It was originally used primarily in medicine.

Ginger is one of the best medicines and has long been used in the East. It can be used as a paste made from dried ginger or as a powder.

It is believed that it can soothe a headache in less than 15 minutes. This is because ginger contains gingerol, which has an aspirin-like effect and has the same blood-thinning properties naturally.

Ginger increases appetite because it stimulates salivation and also has a gas, sweat and stimulating effect. It also acts against nausea and is a natural anticoagulant.

The herb is also useful for dyspepsia and colic, as well as diarrhea - rub the navel area with a piece of ginger.

Here's a proven recipe for stomach and intestinal cramps:

Put 1 teaspoon of grated ginger (or ginger powder) into 1 cup of hot water. Add 20 drops of soy sauce and a pinch of ground black pepper. Leave for 10 minutes, strain and drink.
