Ginger has been used as a remedy for many complaints for centuries. Now researchers are exploring the possibility that ginger may be effective in treating certain modern conditions. Here are 15 wellness benefits of this herb, based on research we have reviewed.*

    • Alleviates motion sickness. Ginger has been shown to be an effective remedy for nausea associated with motion sickness. A study published in the medical journal The Lancet found that 36 men and women who were highly susceptible to motion sickness reported that taking ginger reduced or delayed motion sickness when they were spun in a tilting chair. A Danish study of 80 naval cadets prone to seasickness found that those given 1 gram of ginger powder suffered less in a four-hour period than those given a placebo.

    • Soothes asthma symptoms. Ginger helps break up coughs, alleviate sore throats and tight chests. In 2013 the American Thorasic Society released a study that ginger can be helpful to those who suffer from asthma by enhancing the effects of their current medications. The study found that pure ginger helps to sooth constricted bronchial tubes that make it difficult for asthma patients to breathe. When ginger is combined with bronchodilator medications (the most common type of asthma medication) it significantly improved the effects of the medication to open up air ways. A warm cup of ginger tea is recommended to help break up congestion.

    • Treats fungus infections. Ginger has proven to be highly effective in extrenal treatments including serving as anti-fungals. One study looked at the effect of ginger specifically on Candida albican fungi and found that all samples of ginger were more effective in clearing the fungus than just ethanol alone with clear results being visible within 24-48 hours (http://www.ssdctumkur.org/jdsr4_05.pdf). Another study found that ginger had an equal effective rate of curing the fungus as a popular prescription, making ginger a natural cure. (http://www.thescipub.com/pdf/10.3844/ajassp.2009.1067.1069). Studies also show that the ginger did not need to be manufactured into a pharmacutical drug but the healing properties can be derived from it's natural form (though the first study used ginger as a paste).

    • SEA SALT RESEARCH

      Health Benefits of Sea Salt

      Here are a few of the many health benefits
      associated with Sea Salt.

      • Retains essential vitamins and nutrients lost in regular table salt
      • Boosts electrolytes
      • Maintain normal blood sugar levels
      • Prevents dehydration
      • Purifies Skin

      Wakaya Perfection Kosher Fijian Sea Salt is thoughtfully drawn from the sparkling apple-jade reefs of Wakaya off of our picturesque white sand beachfronts. As part of our desalination process, we carefully separate the majority of freshwater with reverse osmosis and extensive filtration efforts, which results in the purest form of salt water. Here are 5 wellness benefits, based on research we have reviewed.*

    • The process of Creating Sea Salt leaves trace minerals that are stripped from refined table salt. Sea salt is created by evaporating ocean or salt lake water, which means little to no processing. Thus sea salt retains trace minerals such as magnesium, potassium, calcium and other nutrients that are often stripped away when regular table salt is processed in to soft grains.

    • Sea salt helps boost electrolytes The essential elements that sea salt retains due to the evaporation process help the body maintain your electrolyte balance. This balance helps boost the transmission of information between brain cells. That transmission influences heart rate, blood pressure and muscle tension.

    • Sea salt helps maintain normal blood sugar levels Sea salt assists the kidneys in eliminating acidity from liquids you process in your body. By bolstering this elimination your kidneys are better able to maintain lower blood sugar levels.

    • Sea salt can prevent dehydration By adding only ¼ of a teaspoon of sea salt to a half gallon of water you drink will cause your body to retain the water and prevent dehydration. Dehydration can lead to dry skin and other more serious side effects.

    • Sea salt is a skin purifier Sea salt contains vitamin C and magnesium, which boosts the functions of antioxidants. This allows sea salt to absorb dirt, dust and other toxins from your skin. The trace amounts of calcium found in sea salt help to unclog pores and the iodine contained in the salt helps ward of skin infections.
