Ginger is an antioxidant and has a long tradition of alleviating stomach conditions. It can calm the effects of morning sickness and is completely safe for expectant mothers. Ginger is also an anti-inflammatory and can help reduce pain and increase mobility. According to a recent study by the University of Maryland School of Medicine, this was true in 75% of arthritis patients and 100% of those with muscular discomfort.
