     Ginger has been well researched and many of its traditional uses confirmed. It is well known to support the body through motion sickness, nausea, and indigestion. It is a warming remedy, ideal for supporting healthy circulation thereby perhaps supporting healthy blood pressure levels and possibly keeping the blood thin in higher doses. According to Stephen Buhner, the author of the book "Herbal Antivirals", ginger may possess anti-viral effects thereby supporting a healthy immune system response. Ginger may support a healthy inflammation response, consequently, there has been much recent interest in its use for joint problems. If a person has exercised too much or suffers from arthritis or rheumatism, ginger has been traditionally used to possibly put out the fire, so to speak. Due to its ability to probably support healthy circulation, ginger is thought to likely improve the complexion. It may conceivably reduce nervousness, ease tendonitis, and help sore throats return to normal. Studies demonstrate that ginger may also support healthy lipid levels.

This stimulating herb is warming to the system. In her book '10 Essential Herbs' author Lalitha Thomas describes the properties: "The major active ingredients in ginger are terpenes (quite similar to the chemical action of turpentine) and an oleo-resin called ginger oil. These two, and other active ingredients in ginger provide support for healthy circulation.
