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 received the crystallized ginger promptly and so far (I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but did do a taste test) it is as good as I had hoped. It had very good flavor and zing. I am looking forward to cooking with this product.”

“Your crystallized ginger is the best I've ever tasted, and I'm thrilled to have found it here at Nuts Online where I regularly order 25 lbs of raw peanuts. It is especially beneficial for me because ever since I started eating a piece of ginger after each meal, I've not had to take medication for reflux. ”

“After I ordered crystalized ginger from Nut online, I realized the flavor is what it is supposed to be, wonderful taste of the ginger with the sweetness of sugar. I use it in a chicken salad with grapes, almond slivers, celery stalk, wild rice, olive oil and vinegar. Delish! ”

“My friend Slyvia found this site and purchased a bag for me. She used to get sugar gingers from Chinatown in Manhattan but, the place closed. I must say I enjoyed "nutsonline Gingers" more. As well others customers have said, "I'm glad the site exist. THANK YOU! IT WAS TRULY YUMMY!”

“I am EXTREMELY pleased with my shopping experience with you! I recently placed my 3rd order, and you are efficient and prompt. It's much easier for me to order my crystallized ginger from you, than to try to find it locally. I recommend you to EVERYONE! Keep up the good job!”
