Asian holistic medicine has long touted the multiple benefits of the aromatic root called ginger. Whether sliced or ground, cooked or raw, ginger flavors countless dishes with its fragrant zing. What's more, it's also believed to aid in digestion, relieve stomach ailments and even prevent motion sickness.
