iVillage.com: Natural Ways to Prevent and Relieve Heartburn, Gas and Other Digestive Woes

Munch Candied Ginger

Nibbling two slices of candied ginger quells the queasies for up to 88 percent of people within 30 minutes, say researchers at the University Hospitals in Cleveland, OH. That makes this sweet, spicy treat as effective as Dramamine for easing nausea, but without this meds’ sleepy side effects. Bonus: Researchers at India’s Central Food Technological Research Institute say enjoying two slices of candied ginger daily can also help cut your heartburn flare-ups as much as 40 percent. Their studies suggest that ginger’s active ingredients (gingerols and curcumin) not only improve digestion and quell nausea fast; they also prod the gallbladder to produce more bile (a digestive aid that helps break down heartburn-triggering fats).
