While often referred to as a root, ginger is in fact a spice that contains potent antioxidants such as shogaols, zingerone, and gingerols.1 These strong compounds have been linked to providing relief for dozens of issues, including cough, bronchitis, upper respiratory tract infections, migraine headaches, motion and morning sickness, rheumatoid arthritis, post-surgical pain, flatulence, loss of appetite, diarrhea, upset stomach, stomachache, colic, dyspepsia, and general and chemotherapy-induced nausea. It has even been used topically as an analgesic.1
Gingerols are the substances contained in ginger that many scientists believe are responsible for the reduction in inflammation people experience when they start taking ginger supplements regularly.
