    I agree strongly with all the comments above. Ginger is an amazing botanical that has numerous properties shown to have great effects at the cellular tissue level. Ancient eastern medicine practices have in fact been using super botanicals, which includes ginger for 5000 years. Ayurveda is a system of traditional medicine native to India, the word Ayurveda comprises the words āyus, meaning ‘life’ and veda, meaning ‘science’. I strongly encourage those that do not know of Ayurveda to research this form of ancient wisdom.
