4. Ginger for Inflammatory Pain:

Ginger is widely used for inflammatory pain such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Numerous studies have shown ginger to be effective and safe at relieving arthritic pain, both through topical application and by taking it internally. Ginger has also been shown to relieve muscle pain after workouts.

5. Treats Indigestion:

Ginger aids indigestion or functional dyspepsia by accelerating gastric emptying and stimulating motility. This was concluded after a randomized double-blind investigation in Chang Gung University, Taiwan, using ginger capsules on twenty-four healthy volunteers

6. Low Blood Sugar Levels:

A new study found that powdered ginger lowered blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. If this is of concern to you, monitor your sugar carefully and check with your doctor on how the ginger could interact with medications, which could throw off insulin levels in a dangerous way.
