The use of ginger dates back many centuries. It was commonly used throughout Asia and Europe. Chinese herbalists traditionally use ginger to expel cold and rekindle the body's warm fires. It is also used for some types of intestinal discomfort, cough, and body aches. The most widely known use of ginger today is for nausea and motion sickness, thus giving some western insight as to why, in China and India, ginger is believed to stimulate and strengthen the stomach. Modern research on nausea and motion sickness used approximately 1 gram daily which is equivalent to about 6 servings of Meltzer's Ginger mints. Meltzer's ginger mints contain a standardized ginger extract, not just regular powdered ginger. Research has also found ginger to be a powerful antioxidant. Ginger has also been shown in research to have a regulatory role in the natural inflammatory response of the body. In India ginger is applied as a paste to the temples to relieve headache.
