There are numerous benefits to ginger.  It aids in digestion, piques the appetite, lowers hyperacidity, and prevents gas formation and bloating.  

In Ayurvedic medicine, a low digestive "fire" in a normally cool-natured Vata dosha causes an imbalance, resulting in excessive belly gases.  Ginger increases the warmth and brings balance to pacify the Vata dosha.  Ginger aids in sleep and insomnia by calming and balancing an aggravate Vata dosha.  An aggravated Vata dosha also impairs digestion and causes toxins (Ama) to accumulate in pancreatic cells, impairing insulin function in the body.**  Ginger balances Vata dosha, improving sexual function in men by increasing testosterone levels, has aphrodisiac (Vrihya) properties, manages menstrual pain and spasms.  Ginger reduces an aggravated Vata dosha, which can lead to pain and swelling associated with osteoarthritis (Sandhivata).  

Bloating is also caused when the naturally hot Pitta dosha is lower than usual, resulting in low digestive heat.  Ginger increases the warmth to balance Pitta dosha.  However, over-consumption of ginger should be avoided in the Pitta dosha because we don't want to tip the scales into having too much heat.* 

Ginger balances Kapha dosha.  Because Kapha dosha is cool and slow in nature, it can become aggravated by additional cold.  Ginger warms Kapha dosha, managing it to maintain equilibrium and balance.  When Kapha is balanced, digestion in improved, urine (Mutrala) production is normalized, bowels are calmed and purged regularly (Rechana), and colds, coughs and body aches are reduced.  

Ginger powder can be added to teas or recipes while cooking. 

*Beneficial if not in excessive amounts due to is Ayurvedic hot nature (ushna).  **Monitor blood sugar while ingesting ginger if you are on medication for diabetes.
