Nature's flavorful soother...calms stomachs, quiets coughs and much more
If someone tried to sell you a potion that could get rid of headaches, ease stomach upset, quiet a cough, soothe menstrual cramps, and even cure cancer, you'd probably be quite skeptical. But there may be such a remedy, and chances are it's right in your spice rack. Ginger, the dried rhizome (underground stem) of Zingiber officinale, has indeed been recommended for just about every condition except hair loss. What's interesting is that not all of these claims are hype.
