Major attention is being paid to ginger's potential clinical uses in the hopes of achieving significant therapeutic effects. This thorough review seeks to offer a thorough explanation of the clinical effects of ginger in many documented areas. Systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and randomised controlled trials on the effects of ginger were mentioned. The study design, population characteristics, and primary outcomes of the review and research papers were all thoroughly examined. Along with anti-inflammatory effects, it has been shown to help cancer types, digestive issues, anti-diabetic metabolic syndromes, and motion sickness and vomiting during pregnancy. Calcium channel blockers as well as antibiotics have shown synergistic effect with ginger in preventing platelet aggregation. Ginger has the capacity to fend off illness.
