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.
Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick

“We received our first purchase from Nuts.com, and believe you me it won't be our last. My family is in LOVE with dates and after researching online and reading customer reviews I decided to purchase a 5LB bag of Jumbo Medjool Dates, along with English Walnuts, Roasted Sunflower Seeds, Crystallized Ginger, Roasted Pecans, Jumbo Thompson Raisins. The communication from Nuts.com was over the top, their customer service is honestly TOP notch. They confirmed when it was being shipped and even sent me a delivery confirmation before I got home. I feel like they treated me as if I was a family member, making sure I knew the process from beginning to the end. Nuts.com will definitely be part of my grocery runs every month and with all their variety we will certainly be trying out new nuts, spices, dried fruits and veggies.”
