Ginger: American Family Physician Review
Brett White, MD
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is one of the more commonly used herbal supplements. Although often consumed for culinary purposes, it is taken by many patients to treat a variety of conditions. Ginger has been shown to be effective for pregnancy-induced and postoperative nausea and vomiting.
There is less evidence to support its use for motion sickness or other types of nausea and vomiting. Mixed results have been found in limited studies of ginger for the treatment of arthritis symptoms. (Am Fam Physician 2007;75:1689-91. Copyright © 2007 American Academy of Family Physicians.)
