Ginger is famous for easing nausea and vomiting. It is gentle but effective enough to treat even morning sickness, motion sickness, and even the upset stomach caused by food poisoning.

But here are 3 things you might not know about ginger:

  1. Ginger is a sialogogue. What!? This means ginger helps promote saliva production which makes swallowing easier. It’s one of the reasons it’s helpful in treating sore throats.
  2. While there are over 80 species of ginger, Zingiber officinale, the variety you most commonly buy in the supermarket, is native to China. It then traveled all over the world, including being popularly traded on the Silk Road dating all the way back to the 11th century.
  3. Not only can ginger detox your liver and lymph, but it also helps to reduce the possible toxic side effects of other herbs. It is also considered an effective guide herb, helping other herbs go where you want them to. Recent studies have even confirmed this important property.
