About Crystallized Ginger
Crystallized ginger is pungent with a spicy-sweet flavor and is moist and chewy. It is embraced as a natural remedy for reducing hot flashes - huge numbers of women swear by it. It helps alleviate indigestion and colds...and don't forget to take it with you on boat trips for sea sickness! (Some of us here know from experience that it's an absolutely essential part of your travel kit...)
Interestingly, ginger itself is as old as the recorded history of man. A native to southern Asia and India, it is spoken of in the Jewish Talmud, written about by Marco Polo, and even recommended by Henry VIII as a remedy against the plague.
Crystallized Ginger Health Benefits
1) Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Crystallized ginger can reduce inflammation and relieve the pain associated with it. A 2012 study published in the journal Arthritis compared the anti-inflammatory effect of ginger extract to that of common drugs used in the treatment of arthritis, such as cortisone and ibuprofen. The researchers observed that ginger extract was as effective as cortisone at relieving arthritic pain, and that ginger can treat inflammation without the negative side effects associated with the common drugs.
2) Treatment for Nausea: Ginger has long been used as a natural remedy to alleviate nausea caused by motion sickness, morning sickness, and chemotherapy. A study funded by the National Cancer Institute examined over 600 people who had experienced nausea after a chemotherapy treatment. Those patients who received ginger supplements throughout the rest of their treatments experienced a 40 percent reduction in nausea symptoms.
3) Immunity-Booster: During flu season, make sure you have crystallized ginger on-hand! Ginger contains active compounds that can relieve sinuses and protect the body against toxins and viruses. A 2008 article published in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine discussed ginger’s ability to activate T-cells, a group of white blood cells that help destroy viruses and tumor cells.

“I read a few previous comments and wondered if your items are at good as these folks said--they are! Indeed, you have extremely fast shipping and the crystalized ginger is the best I've had yet! Thanks.”

“I ordered two sizes of tapioca pearls - and they are great. The candied ginger is for my grandson who arrived from Afghanistan today - just as the postman delivered your package! He was thrilled to say the least, and carried his ginger away for his first night on USA soil. He was a medic in the army, but has now done his time. He's a fine man (25) and will begin his college in Arizona for helicopter training this fall. Thanks for your good site. Martha”

“I've never ordered from you before. In fact, I had never heard of you until I read about you in some article which I recently read, but can no longer remember where.
If the crystalized ginger (absolutely wonderful) is any example, and the sample of dried Turkish figs can manage to last another hour in my house, and the coffee beans I will use tomorrow morning is as good as I think it will be, I will be ordering more often.
The ginger is so marvelous I would be unable to say enough about it. ”

“Since everything we've ordered has been fabulous, I jumped in and ordered a pound of crystallized ginger for my mother. As expected, this ginger is soft and chewy and fresh. She uses it in dressings and recipes, and now she has enough (at such a reasonable price!) that she's started dropping a piece in her ginger tea. She says it adds just the right amount of sweetness, and the soft ginger at the bottom of the cup is an extra treat. She declared it the best cup of tea ever!”

“I'd been looking for some ginger for the ginger-holics in my household and was advised to go to your site. I placed my order on a Sunday afternoon, and it arrived relatively early Monday morning. I have to say, I am impressed! And my grapefruit fruit slices are excellent, to boot.”

“OH MY GOODNESS -- first your service was awesome - ordered yesterday - received my package today -- but service is only good if the product exceeds it - - - this was the most delicious dried fruit I ever tasted in my rather long life. The dates -- are succulent, large, sweet and moist perfection -- the dried candied ginger is moist and tangy ( cannot wait to taste it with my tea), the california apricots sweet and delectable -- honestly worth the price and more -- I could not be happier and will be ordering from you many times in the future --- ohhhh the packaging is great as well - easy to keep fresh and very stylish.
Thank you so very much !!!!!!!!! You are a great credit to your grandfather. ”
