How To Use Ginger For Morning Sickness In Pregnancy


Morning sickness or nausea is one of the most common symptoms that a woman faces in her pregnancy. It is most commonly seen in the first trimester of pregnancy.

During pregnancy, the body produces a hormone known as HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) that is responsible for inducing nausea-related feelings, which causes morning sickness.

Apart from the hormonal changes, stress, low blood sugar, constipation, anxiety and nutritional deficiencies are few more causes of morning sickness.

Even though there are many remedies available to cure morning sickness, ginger is widely used for this purpose due to its medicinal property.

Ginger has certain chemicals called gingerols that help in giving relief from nausea. It promotes the secretion of various digestive enzymes that neutralise the stomach acids and aid in a better digestion process.

Therefore, in this article, we at Boldsky will be listing out some of the ways to use ginger to cure morning sickness during pregnancy. Have a look:
