How It Works

Ginger has been well studied to help with nausea and vomiting of various origins, and it may also aid in indigestion and pain/bloating associated with IBS. Some research suggests it may even help with migraines and arthritic pain. Ginger can be a great inexpensive option for those dealing with regular nausea.

A lot of ginger shots available today also include oregano oil. Oregano oil, though less researched in humans, has been studied for its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects, particularly when it comes to gut health. Animal studies show that oregano oil may even promote the integrity of your intestinal barrier, and many people use it to support healthy intestinal balance. This oil is SO potent, so just a few drops in liquid (or on the tongue for you badasses) will do!

Prepared ginger shots are available all over, but you can also find ginger chews, ginger candy, actual ginger root, ginger tea, and other ginger beverages to try.

As with all supplements, these aren't without side effects and potential interactions w/ meds, so always check with your doc before starting something new.

The ginger + oregano oil combo is also great for taming eczema flare-ups and menstrual cramps :)
