How it works
Research supports the use of ginger to reduce the occurrence of and symptoms of motion sickness. These symptoms include nausea, vomiting, vertigo and cold sweats. The actual mechanism of action is unclear, however it has been suggested that ginger aids in these conditions by having a local action on the digestive system.
Ginger is warming and stimulating, and aids digestion by promoting the secretion of gastric acids. Ginger can reduce the symptoms of gastrointestinal upset as it is a carminative which eases colic and flatulence, while helping to relieve vomiting and gastrointestinal muscular spasm.
