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.

“Ordering was a breeze, price was great, delivery was ridiculously fast and the product taste is awesome. What more could I ask for? Thank you for a great experience.”

“Superb product and great service. What a deal. The sundried tomatoes as as good as I've ever had. Crystallized ginger? Can't stop eating it. Chocolate covered orange peel..... gone already. Only issue? If you live in a hot area, chocolate bars melt so beware. Mine is in the fridge as I type....lol”

“I have been buying things from Nutsonline for years, starting from when i first googled cashews and literally stumbled across the site. The cashews, the dates, the figs and the peanuts are all wonderful, but what is even better is the chance I have had to try things I never heard of like Samosas. They are completely delicious and I never would have even known about them except for you-know-who. The other great surprise was crystallized ginger root. I thought it sounded boring, ho-hum, but boy was I wrong. It's like eating a cookie and it's even good for you. I even enjoy the veggie chips, and who would have thunk it since i hate squash! Great products, great samples and keep up the good work!”

“I found this wonderful store while looking for a supplier for candied ginger. WOW!! I am soooo glad I did. I've ordered from them twice already, and I just can't find enough great things to say about them! Quality all the way, products, shipping, and Customer Service :). I will be back-and back, and back...THANKS!

“I ordered on Tuesday and it was here on Thursday by 3 pm.
Stephanie, Newfields, NH March 23, 2011
“Wow -- you guys even beat me to the 'thank you'!
We are very happy new customers. I just placed my order Mon afternoon, and here it is on my doorstep 48 hours later with no special rush instructions or charges. I gave you a try when my source for candied ginger -- Harry & David outlet store -- vanished without warning. My spousal unit, the consumer and conoisseur of all things ginger opened your pack and declared this the best ginger he's had in a looong time. "Better than Harry & David, William Sonoma, the GingerPeople. Num-num-nummers!"
So -- having earned a 'wow' for service, quality and even price, you may be sure we'll be back. Nice going, NutsOnline! ”
