 All the credit for ginger goes to the Chinese since they have been using it in more ways than one for 2,000 plus years. Aside from being used as a spice for cooking, it has been used to help digestion and stomach problems such as diarrhea and nausea. Ginger can also be used to treat stomach problems caused by cancer treatments such as vomiting, nausea, and loss of appetite. The wise Chinese also found that ginger can help treat arthritis, heart conditions, cold and flu-like symptoms, headaches, and painful cramps due to menstrual periods. If you have some fresh ginger juice lying around you can use that to treat burns, as the active agents in ginger can relieve pain. Geez, what can’t ginger do?
    
    What gives ginger all it’s stomach-healthy benefits? Gingerol. It is found in the root part of the ginger plant. According to the Keck School of Medicine at USC, ginger may be a better bet for motion sickness than the leading over-the-counter medication. Keck School of Medicine also found that ginger supplements, more specifically those in powered form, may decrease vomiting, nausea, and sweating associated with seasickness.

    Ginger seems to take away stomach issues for everything, because it even reduces nausea and vomiting related to morning sickness; pregnancy morning sickness, not hangover morning sickness. Francesca Borrelli led a study that found ginger was more effective than a placebo in 33 trials relating to stomach sickness due to pregnancy. The study also found that there were no harmful effects to the mother or unborn baby while on the ginger treatment. This is why ginger is in HappyGirl: it helps with stomach problems that occur because of hormonal imbalances.

     A 2007 study led by the Graduate Institute of Chinese Pharmaceutical Science found that ginger can also prevent and ease the effects of E. coli, the most common form of food-poisoning. This may be due to the fact that ginger helps to control the quantity of free radicals in the body, which can decrease and eliminate damage done by outside intruders. Another reason why ginger is in WheatgrassLove products: our main goal is to help you build a strong immune system!

    On that same note, cancer can be activated by intruders of the body. More specifically, colorectal cancer can be activated by a pathogen, which is bad because it is the second leader in cancer-related deaths. Nine of the active compounds that make up ginger bind to serotonin receptors in your body and these can influence gastrointestinal function. This also means that it can help reduce colon inflammation which can be a major preventative measure to colon cancer.

    Healthy serotonin production is also necessary to boost mood imbalances and promote an optimistic attitude, hence why it’s in HappyGirl. Thankfully now you can prepare yourself for any sort of stomach issue that comes your way, thanks to REVV and HappyGirl!
