'We are usually advised to add ginger to our foods and drinks to boost our energy, metabolism, or to treat a wide range of symptoms ranging from sore throat to digestive issues. Is ginger really that powerful and versatile?

What matters more than it’s origin is the fact that ginger has been used in both China and India for over three thousand years for its medicinal properties.'
