Did you know that ginger was considered a very expensive spice in ancient times? Yes it’s true. In Roman times, a pound of ginger was considered of equivalent value to one whole sheep! When the Roman Empire fell, ginger’s importance faded but when it was re-introduced to Europe, it again became one of the world’s most popular spice and herbs.

In addition to being a staple spice in Asian cuisines, ginger has been widely used to treat different sorts of ailments and diseases – including diabetes, motion sickness, stomach upset, menstrual problems, diarrhea, flu, arthritis, heart problems, headaches, colds, asthma, persistent cough, sore throat, muscle strains, acid reflux, cold sweating, dizziness, vomiting, ulcerative colitis, nausea and flatulence.



Ginger is also thought to be useful in the treatment of inflammatory conditions. It works by inhibiting the production and activities of cytokines and nitric oxides that are known to promote inflammation, which may trigger neurodegenerative diseases later on. The anti-inflammatory effects of ginger may be useful in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, gout and knee osteoarthritis.

Modern scientific studies have revealed ginger to have numerous therapeutic qualities – including analgesic, antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antispasmodic, antifungal, expectorant, anti-clotting and hypotensive. Furthermore, ginger is known to be capable of increasing blood flow, promote sweating and relax peripheral blood vessels.

Ginger is undeniably one of the best herbs you can grow in your garden. We recently found a great tutorial for how to grow your own. Here is the link: http://www.howtogrowstuff.com/how-to-grow-ginger/
