The scientific name of ginger is zingiber officinale. I used it as spicy in cooking like beaf soup, fish adobo. I like only the taste in soup but i dont like to eat the ginger alone. Its very spicy and the taste really different. And it is also smells good. I cooked it with water and a tea we called that one here a "salabat". I dont know about your language. Before we used it as for massage in the body its oil. I feel good and relieved for that if i have a gas pain or dyspepsia and also vomiting. According to the source i read, it is also a medications for arthritis and heart disease.

I had been feeling unwell with nausea, a loose tummy and loss of appetite on and of for weeks following I sinus infection. I didn't know what to do till I started graving ginger. I was unsure because I thought it was too spicy to do my stomach much good, but I bought my self some fresh ginger and from the first whiff I stated to feel better! I grated some into a barbeque sauce I made for a chicken and white rice dish...and that's it...I'm cured!

I'm sure it's good for a lot of things, unfortunatly the taste is horrible.
