Ginger is a plant widely used in traditional medicine because of its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.
As an ingredient in dietary supplements, it is anti-inflammatory and stimulates digestion. It can reduce gas formation in the intestine and has antiemetic properties (in cases of nausea and motion sickness during travel). It may also be of interest to mitigate menstrual cramps.
It is important to take dietary supplements in the dosage recommended by the manufacturer and in the context of a balanced diet. People with digestive and/or other chronic diseases should consult a healthcare professional.
