Ginger eases morning sickness
Ginger might be helpful in relieving nausea and vomiting that plague many pregnant women as a part of their morning sickness. Although it does not cure the problem but it surely increases the choice available to women for the management of morning sickness.
Neither ginger nor vitamin B6 caused any major side effects. However, women who took ginger were much more likely to experience belching after taking the capsules. There have been some concerns that taking ginger during pregnancy may be harmful to babies, but there were no differences between the ginger and vitamin B6 groups in birth defects or pregnancy complications. But because of the small size of the study, the researchers concluded that there is insufficient data on the efficacy of ginger in morning sickness. Firm evidence on the safety of ginger in pregnancy is essential and further systematic research on the risks and benefits of ginger during pregnancy would be of great clinical relevance.
