- Nausea and vomiting
Sunthi (Ginger/Zingiber officinale) has been used in Ayurveda as a digestive aid. Its fresh, pungent flavor makes it an essential ingredient in Asian cuisines. The root of the herb has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years and is known to be greatly beneficial in reducing nausea and upset stomachs. It was used in Greek culture for making breads, the predecessor of the gingerbread we enjoy today.
