Clinical Herbalist Reviewed on January 4, 2012 by Paulina Nelega, RH
Ginger is especially beneficial for anyone with perpetually cold hands and feet… so if you “know anyone” who takes a hot water bottle to bed every night, they may want to give Ginger a try!
Ginger promotes vasodilation of blood vessels in the peripheral tissues and helps to warm one up ‘from the inside out.’ For this reason, Ginger is useful for inducing a sweat to help detoxify, or to sweat out a fever (have a serving while in a hot bath, to promote the most sweating). It will also help to loosen up tight muscles, and, as a vasodilator, may also lower blood pressure.
