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 have trouble finding crystalized ginger every thanksgiving for my cranberry sauce, and when I do it costs more for a little bottle than a whole pound from you.
My mother made me a "ginger jar" which I can now keep filled.”
Cyndi C, Myrtle Beach, SC December 10, 2003
Thanks so much for the order....very prompt and efficient service. I have to say what a pleasure it was doing business with you. For a start, your
database accepted my credit card. I sometimes have trouble with companies'
credit card data bases not being current. Then, your website is probably one of the best I have used - so very nicely set out. As to your products -
they are very fresh. I only wish that my mother was still alive as she
loved crystallised ginger and yours is the freshest and most delicious I have ever managed to find.
I hope that 2004 brings you all good health, happiness and great prosperity
which you richly deserve.
from a very satisfied customer.”
