Ginger Product

Ginger supplements are something that everyone should always have on hand as they have so many amazing uses! Whenever you would use aspirin or Tylenol you can avoid the serious side effects of those painkillers and use 3 ginger capsules instead.

Benefits of ginger root

Ginger is a natural anti inflammatory and antispasmodic so it works wonders for menstrual cramps. You take 3 capsules twice per day 3 days prior to your cycle and continue taking it during your period. As a Naturopath I've helped many of my clients alleviate their menstrual cramps using a ginger supplement. The ginger was so effective they also had many of their colleagues and friends order ginger pills from me.

Ginger for nausea or motion sickness

Ginger is safe for children. One of my friends was taking her son and his friend for a vacation by plane. The boys were 8 years old. His friend's mother said, "Kevin always gets sick on planes, he will definitely throw up." So my friend gave him a ginger supplement and he was fine, no motion sickness at all.

His mother was so surprised. She gave him some ginger next time they traveled and he threw up. Why? She had bought a brand of ginger that was not from a reputable company different from what I sell. Quality is key!

An adult can take 2 capsules of ginger pills before leaving and 1 capsule every hour as needed, although with a good quality ginger product, more may not be necessary. You can even take ginger after vomiting, it will still help.
