Video Title: The Health Benefits Ginger Duration: 58 seconds

Ginger is well known for its many health benefits.

It's known to aid in the reduction of blood clot formation, it can help women reduce the symptoms of morning sickness, and it also has anti-viral properties and may help against fighting the common cold.

The beneficial compounds found in ginger are found in the volatile oils, which give ginger that spicy, pungent taste. Recent research has shown that it may help with joint pain for those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis as it reduces inflammation throughout the body.

Ginger is a great accompaniment to many fish dishes. You often see it next to sushi. You can also add it to fresh juices as it adds an extra kick to the juice.

For more information on how to incorporate ginger in your diet, visit your local food store or speak to your local dietitian.
