Zap that Migraine with…Ginger?

factoids-banner_gingerWe all have read about the use of ginger to alleviate nausea and an upset stomach. A recent research study has discovered that ginger may help treat migraines as well. One hundred subjects who suffered from a history of migraines were divided into two groups. One group took a common migraine prescription drug, sumatriptan(50 mg), and the other group took ginger capsules (250 mg). The participants recorded how they felt when the migraine occurred and rated the pain at multiple time lapses after taking their assigned treatment. Favorable relief was achieved in 70% of the sumatriptan-treated individuals and in 64% of the ginger-treated individuals within two hours after taking their respective treatments.If you suffer from migraines, perhaps you should give ginger a shot!
