Ginger will never go out of fashion. This sweet-scented, hot, bitter flavoured vegetable was mentioned as a medicine in Sen-nung’s Pen Cao Ching, which was the first book of herbals in China. The plant’s beneficial effects haven’t changed since.
Ginger is known to improve digestion and strengthen the gastrointestinal system, but it also boosts our immune system and it is a great pain-killer. Furthermore, it can cure nausea, cold and a sore throat.
Serving tip: Grate a small piece of ginger, pour hot water over it and let it steep for 10 minutes. Filter it, add honey and drink it in small sips. You can use it for inhalation treatment too.
