    I am a regular consumer of ginger along with my Lunch. Because of my doing it, all my family members also follow the same. I am doing it because I have read somewhere that Ginger-juice stimulates the secretion of digestive juices. This helps digestion and prevents gas formation. I am an out-and-out vegetarian.

    Ginger is a small medicine chest all by itself in the kitchen. Ginger can relieve motion and morning sickness,and calm an upset stomach when you have overindulged. Either a cup of ginger tea or a glass of ginger ale can give quick relief if you are getting stomach flu. Gingeris loaded with anti viral compounds that fight rhinovirus,and common cold.
