Ever tried chewing on a piece of ginger in its natural form? You may want to try it after hearing about its pain relieving powers.
According to Everyday Roots, ginger root affects the way our body handles inflammation and pain. When we ingest ginger root, it sparks the production of lipids within our cells—and lipids work to calm the nerves that react when we feel pain. Ginger root stops our body from recognizing and responding when migraines occur, and can even soothe feelings of nausea. All you need to do is chew on a piece, or sip some ginger root tea.
