"I can't promise it will help pain, but I'm pretty sure it helps my digestion. I used to take it only when I felt nauseous or dizzy, but now I take it with meals and never have problems. I'm sure it's good for me and this one seems to be a good product for the cost."
"Ginger has been part of our regimen for a while, and we find if very effective. Finding this version when we order so much already from Vitacost, is a real advantage -- you won't find it at a better price."
"I purchased the ginger before my vacation because I had read that it works for motion sickness. It really does. I used it for the 14 hour drive and was able to read during the trip which I have never been able to do. I also used it before the fishing charter and had no sea sickness! Great product."
