This pungent rhizome has been the subject of numerous studies, and has been found to effectively treat a wide range of health problems including indigestion and flatulence.

It does so with the help of phenolic compounds like gingerol. By boosting the digestive process, you can be at lower risk of bloating and flatulence. Its muscle relaxant properties, meanwhile, can also help in the release of gases trapped in the digestive tract.
