Ginger root is extracted and made into tablet form. Active ingredients include gingerols (which give ginger its flavor and odor) and shogaols.
Ginger is said to be an effective antiemetic and antinauseant, especially for nausea caused by motion sickness or pregnancy, and to relieve intestinal cramps. Ginger is also used as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic. It may have antibacterial properties and antiplatelet effects in vitro, but data are inconsistent. Scientific studies are consistent with a beneficial effect in pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting.
