Ginger has other uses including relieving arthritis pain…ulcerative colitis…menstrual discomfort…headaches…fevers from flu and colds…and sore throats…Gastrointestinal problems including heartburn and gas can also be treated with ginger…The muscles of the gastrointestinal tract can be strengthened by the use of garlic…Ginger is also used to treat arthritis…both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis…It is thought that garlic can also provide relief for toothaches…but no scientific evidence exists to support this….

Volatile oils in ginger are what cause the taste…smell…and medical effectiveness….About 1-4% of ginger is oil….Ginger contains pungent constituents…shogaols and gingerols…which make it effective for relieving vomiting and nausea….Bisabolene and zingiberene are the aromatic constituents of garlic…
