Zingiber officinale, ginger:

Ginger is a perennial herb belonging to the family Zingiberaceae, primarily grown in Asia and tropical regions, and is one of the most important and widely consumed herbs worldwide. Cultivated for its edible under-ground stem (rhizome), ginger has been used since antiquity both as a spice and as an herbal medicine to treat a variety of primarily gastrointestinal ailments. This long and established history of medicinal use in humans has stimulated ongoing clinical trials to scientifically assess the effectiveness of ginger. (1) Ancient Sanskrit, Chinese, Greek, Roman, and Arabic texts discussed the use of ginger for health-related purposes. In Asian medicine, dried ginger has been used for thousands of years to deal with stomachache, diarrhea, and nausea. (2) Ginger is also helpful for circulatory sluggishness and is gentle enough for both the elderly and children to use. (3)
