6. Less painful and frequent headaches
A regular headache can really ruin your day, but a migraine can all but incapacitate you. Beyond agonizing pain, migraines can also cause light sensitivity as well as nausea and vomiting. The more than 200 substances in ginger work together to provide anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea, and antihistamine effects which appear to help relieve intense migraine symptoms.
More study is necessary, but early results seem to show that ginger is at least as effective as other commonly prescribed migraine medicines, but without many of the side effects.
