Ginger Research

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 10 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).

May help in HIV treatment. One study published in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry revealed dilo oil’s potential to inhibit HIV reverse transcriptase, which could make it a viable ingredient in antiretroviral medication.

Dilo is helpful for soothing skin irritation (sun burn, sun spots) and moisturizes skin for a healthy glow. Dilo is a rare nut that is found only in Fiji. Locals have been using oil extracted from dilo as skin remedies for hundreds of years but it is now on the forefront of beauty treatments to help soothe sun burns and damage as well as skin moisturizers.
