Ginger Stops Common Cold

The leafy plant grows to almost three feet tall and it produces clusters of greenish-purple flowers. Ginger’s root or rhizome is the part used as a spice or healing aid. It’s harvested by pulling the whole plant out of the soil, removing the leaves and cleaning the basis.

Ginger can be eaten fresh, dried, stored as a spice, or made into tablets, capsules, and liquid extracts. There’s about 2 percent of volatile oil within the root, which is employed within the cosmetic industry as a fragrance in soaps and wonder products.
