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.

“We decided to take the nutty step of ordering a whole nutty KEFLOOFLAH of crystallized ginger when the natural foods place, which is an hour away, failed to take seriously its obligation to maintain a sufficient supply.
We were amazed at the fast delivery. We haven't opened the bags yet, but it looks and smells wonderful! These are nice big slices of ginger, not pathetic little shreds. Eventually it will all be packed into glass jars and await its destiny as a nutty snack or an addition to a cup of tea or a glass of ginger ale. A piece of ginger is just the thing when your nutty stomach doesn't feel so good.
Again, thanks for super fast service and enough crystallized ginger to satisfy our nutty ginger cravings!”

“I am a candied ginger addict. This company's candied ginger is wonderful- thin slices of sweet yet peppery ginger.
Simply divine! Now I just have to exercise some control and not eat all of it in just a few days. I did say I'm a candied ginger addict!”

“I received the package today and the first thing I tried was the ginger and it was great. Since I came to Alabama I have had trouble getting it. My friends in Northern California has sent that to me. Yours is as good I had when I lived there. I'm sure the rest will be as good as the ginger. You will be hearing from again soon.”
