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 ordered some ginger on Monday (and a few extra goodies to try) because my husband is sold on its effects to soothe his stomach. When I saw that it would be shipped the same day, I said, "Wow." When I saw that we would receive in two days, I said, "Wow", again. The very next day I got badly sick with stomach pain and wished I had ordered a day earlier. Imagine my surprise and great relief when my husband came home to find our package at our front door a day early. He promptly fed me a piece of ginger and it made me feel much better. Thank for your excellent service and great prices. I can't wait to get well to try the other treats. I'm confident their quality will be as good as the ginger.”

“Bought the crystallized ginger after hearing that it is great for morning sickness. Am about 4.5 weeks along now and have not gotten sick yet (fingers crossed), but these things are soo gosh darn tasty anyway! Shipping was soo fast, and these were generally less expensive than a lot of the other ginger candy I looked at. Thank you!”
