Ginger is a great aid to digestion. It increases digestive movement through the stomach and duodenum, and has also been shown to stimulate several valuable digestive enzymes in the pancreas.
In India and China it has long been the custom to drink a tea brewed from fresh Ginger, as an aid to digestion after a meal. The enzymes in Ginger break down protein efficiently and rapidly, leaving the digestive system free of any discomfort.

Ginger has been undergoing trials in Denmark to discover the herb's anti-inflammatory potential in the treatment of arthritis. Over 75% of those involved in the trials said they experienced relief in pain and swelling.
In June 1999 a new drug called Zinaxin was launched in the UK to treat arthritis. It was a dietary supplement based on highly concentrated extracts of Ginger. Danish scientists developed the drug after extensive research into the effects of hundreds of natural substances, finding that Ginger was the most effective.
Numerous studies have confirmed the fact that Ginger can work as effectively as aspirin to help clear the build up in clogged arteries. As well as this, Ginger has been found to strengthen the cardiac muscle and lower serum cholesterol levels.
