Benefits

Helps Treat Nausea

Ginger is well known as an anti-nausea aid, helping to relieve nausea resulting from chemotherapy, motion sickness or pregnancy. It can also help relieve symptoms associated with nausea, including vomiting and cold sweats. Because even crystallized ginger can have a strong taste, try sucking on the ginger pieces rather than chewing and swallowing them. This can be especially helpful when you have an upset stomach. The “British Journal of Anaesthesia” published a survey study in 2000 of six peer-reviewed trials on ginger and nausea. Scientists found that ginger was an effective anti-nausea treatment for instances of motion sickness, seasickness and nausea from chemotherapy.

Reduces Stress

The spicy scent of ginger can act as a perk when you’re feeling tired or low. Crystallized ginger possesses the sinus-clearing abilities of ginger, which can help you feel less lethargic and fatigued. It is considered a herbal remedy for symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, according to Erica Verrillo, author of “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: A Treatment Guide.” A 2008 issue of “Phytotherapy Research” included an animal study that found ginger an effective antioxidant that provided protection from oxidative stress.

Potential Complications

The University of Maryland Medical Center recommends limiting your consumption to 4 grams of ginger, in any form, per day. While side effects from eating ginger are rare, ginger is considered safe to eat regularly. Eating too much can irritate your stomach, however, as well as cause heartburn and irritation in your mouth and esophagus. It can also lead to diarrhea. If you have gallstones, diabetes or are about to go into surgery — and are regularly consuming large quantities of ginger — let your doctor know beforehand. Ginger can sometimes also affect diabetes and blood pressure medication, as well as blood-thinning medication, so let your health care provider know before you start eating crystallized ginger on a regular basis.
