It has been well known for centuries; that Ginger is very beneficial to humans. Its root contains many minerals which have high quantities of vitamins C, E and A such as copper, manganese, magnesium and potassium. It is also responsible for stopping prostaglandins which cause inflammation, muscle contractions, inflammation, and some hormonal changes.
