"Ginger could relieve the nausea and vomiting experienced by pregnant
women, say Australian researchers. Ginger does not prevent morning sickness
but it may help ease some of the nausea experienced by pregnant women,
researchers reported in the April 2004 issue of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Researchers from the University of South Australia in Adelaide gave
nearly 300 women either 350mg of ginger or 25mg of vitamin B6 three
times per day for 3 weeks. The researchers found that both ginger and
vitamin B6, which is sometimes taken to counteract morning sickness,
worked equally well at alleviating nausea symptoms. Due to the small
sample size, the researchers concluded that more research was needed
to determine ginger's risks and benefits."
