Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is an irreplaceable part of Ayurveda medicine, where it is mostly used to break down the toxin build-up in the organs. According to a study published in the Journal of Microbiology and Antimicrobials in 2011, ginger is an amazing immune-boosting plant. In addition, ginger can also help the digestion process.

All these amazing health benefits are due to the high nutrient content of ginger. This healing plant is rich in protein, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin C, iron, choline, folic acid, inositol, manganese, pantothenic acid, and silicon.

The most potent form of ginger is the ginger essential oil. The essential oil is the best way to use ginger as medicine. It is usually obtained by steam distillation or solvent extraction. The ginger essential oil can help digestion, clear the lungs, improve blood circulation and heart health, and relieve muscle and joint pain. In addition, this essential oil is very effective in handling emotional troubles such as fear, lack of self-confidence, and lack of motivation.
