Ginger contains gingerol, a substance with powerful medicinal properties. It can treat many forms of nausea, especially morning sickness. It also reduces muscle pain and soreness. Ginger lowers blood sugar level and cholesterol level. It may improve brain function and protects against Alzheimer’s disease.
Firm and fibrous ginger roots are stretched with multiple fingers that have light to dark tan skin and rings on it and is aromatic, spicy and pungent. The flavour gets intensified when the ginger is dried and lessens when cooked.
