GINGER, the chest of medicine.
Ginger is a perennial herb native to China and India. It is obtained from the plant Zingiber officinale. It is one of the most revered medicines in Ayurveda and is considered the ‘chest of medicine’ due to its various health benefits.
Ginger is often referred to as a root, but it is actually an underground stem called rhizome. As a spice, the use of ginger dates back 4000 years. The medicinal properties of ginger were discovered around 2000 years ago. Its powerful therapeutic and preventive effects make it usable in the treatment of various ailments.
