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.

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.
