Ginger is one of the few "panacea" herbs that is helpful for almost everything. Ginger is especially excellent for boosting digestive health, gentle cleansing, pain relief, circulation, and increasing the absorption rate of foods, medicines, vitamins and minerals.
Originating in tropical Southeast Asia, ginger has been
cultivated for more than 3,000 years. Ancient medical records indicate
that it was used in teas, baths, and chest compresses, and texts dating
as far back as ancient China and India suggest ginger for healthy
digestion. The Romans introduced ginger to Northern Europe, where it was
used in cakes, biscuits and other sweet dishes. By the 14th century, it
rivaled pepper in popularity, and when the plague hit, ginger, with its
antiseptic properties and sulfur content, was considered by some a
warm, spicy-sweet flavor and pungent aroma are unmistakable. It's a
universally popular flavoring that lends its name to three familiar
foods--gingerbread, gingersnaps and ginger ale. It's also popular in
stir-fries and sauces, and in spice blends like curry powder.
Used in a wide variety of sweet and spicy dishes, ginger
blends well with many other spices. It's essential in Oriental cooking
and especially prevalent in the cuisines of India, China, Thailand,
Northern Africa, Japan and the Caribbean countries. Ginger wines are a
popular wintertime beverage in England. In the U.S., ginger lends its
hot, spicy flavor to condiments, relishes, pickles, beverages and all
types of desserts.
