Motion Sickness ruining your travel?

How Ginger Can Help with Motion Sickness
If you've ever experienced motion sickness, you know just how debilitating it can be. From nausea and vomiting to dizziness and headaches, it can ruin even the most enjoyable of travel experiences.
What exactly is Motion Sickness and what causes it?
Motion sickness is caused by a conflict between the senses. When you are moving, your eyes, inner ears (which control balance) and other sensory receptors send messages to your brain about your movement and orientation in space. If these messages are conflicting, such as when you are in a moving vehicle, your eyes may see one thing, your inner ear may sense another, and your body may feel yet another. This inconsistency between sensory information can confuse the brain and lead to the symptoms of motion sickness, which may include nausea, dizziness, vomiting, and sweating. Additionally, some people may be more susceptible to motion sickness due to factors such as a history of migraines or anxiety, certain medications, or genetic predisposition.
But did you know that there's a natural remedy that can help alleviate the symptoms of motion sickness? That's right, we're talking about ginger!
Ginger has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for a variety of ailments, including nausea and vomiting. But it's not just an old wives' tale - there's actually scientific evidence to support the use of ginger for motion sickness. A study published in the journal "Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine" found that ginger was more effective than a placebo in reducing symptoms of motion sickness in naval cadets.
So, how does ginger work?
It's believed that ginger helps to reduce nausea and vomiting by blocking the action of certain chemicals in the brain that trigger these symptoms. Additionally, ginger can support your body's anti-inflammatory defenses that can help to reduce inflammation in the gut, which may also contribute to motion sickness.
What is the best way to consume Ginger for Motion Sickness?
Historically people would steep raw ginger in hot water to make tea, or even chew on a piece of raw ginger. Another option is to try ginger candy or ginger ale, both are high in sugar and may not be your first healthy choice.
At Verdant Kitchen we have a range of products in convenient and travel-friendly forms including high-dose capsules and easy-to-take organic liquid concentrates.
You can check these and other high-quality USA-made supplements on our website. These gluten, nut, and allergen-free products are also free from alcohol, sugar, colors, and preservatives, and are made in our USDA organic-certified facility in Georgia.
Of course, it's important to note that ginger may not work for everyone, and it's always a good idea to talk to your doctor before starting any new supplement or treatment. But for those who do find relief from ginger, it can be a game-changer when it comes to managing the motion sickness.
So, next time you're planning a trip and worried about motion sickness, consider adding some ginger to your travel kit. You just might find that it makes all the difference!
