The study has proven that ginger is an effective remedy for reducing both the severity and the duration of vomiting.

The double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study examined 141 one to ten year old children with acute gastroenteritis and the effectiveness of ginger was compared to a placebo in treating the gastroenteritis.

It was found that vomiting episodes were 20% less in the ginger treatment group and there were 28% fewer children missing school for a minimum of 1 day in the ginger treatment group.

Ginger for functional dyspepsia

Functional dyspepsia is a syndrome that is characterized by chronic indigestion without any known cause.

In a study, 11 individuals with functional dyspepsia received either ginger in capsules or a placebo. The emptying of the stomach was quicker after taking the ginger in comparison to the placebo.2✅ JOURNAL REFERENCE
