7 Spices With Surprising Health Benefits

7 spice all-stars that add a twist of flavor and amazing healing benefits.

Ginger

In its whole form, ginger is one gnarly looking tree root. But this underground stem is excellent for treating upset stomachs, gas and bloating, sore throats and colds in addition to other conditions, such as arthritis and motion sickness. A spicy herb that is used in both sweet and savory dishes, ginger can be sliced, grated, sugared or eaten like candy. Ginger is staple in many baked goods and Asian dishes and can also be consumed as a tea, which can help ease an upset stomach.
